Another moment to thank my mom…

Yesterday nite, my bedtime reflections reminded me of the importance of today – MOTHER’S DAY!

Although there is never a fixed time for someone to thank their parents moreso moms… but then it is still fine to earmark a particular day to make them realize how important they are for us from the bottom of our heart. Often, I get reminded of the western agenda to infiltrate our culture with these events with a ploy to “westernize” us, I tend to see the positive part of it – another occasion to express my gratitude.

And here are some words for my mom and all other moms:

God knew that little ones need love
So He created mothers,
With understanding hearts and
Gentle hands that care for others……

They feed us and they hug us,
And they help us find our things……
Then later on, they step aside,
And let us try our wings……

We know they’re always on our side,
Whatever may befall;
That’s why we need them just as much
When we’re no longer small………..

Yes, God created mothers
To give love their whole lives through….
That’s why they’re treasured very much
Especially one like you!

Thank you mom!!!

    Dear all,
    This is how most of us thank? our mother!
    When you came into the world, she held you in her arms. You thanked her by wailing like a banshee.
    When you were 1 year old, she fed you and bathed you. You thanked her by crying all night long.
    When you were 2 years old, she taught you to walk. You thanked her by running away when she called.
    When you were 3 years old, she made all your meals with love. You thanked her by tossing your plate on the floor.
    When you were 4 years old, she gave you some crayons. You thanked her by coloring the dining room table.
    When you were 5 years old, she dressed you for the holidays. You thanked her by plopping into the nearest pile of mud.
    When you were 6 years old, she walked you to school. You thanked her by screaming, “I’M NOT GOING!”
    When you were 7 years old, she bought you a baseball. You thanked her by throwing it through the next-door-neighbor’ s window.
    When you were 8 years old, she handed you an ice cream. You thanked her by dripping it all over your lap.
    When you were 9 years old, she paid for music lessons. You thanked her by never even bothering to practice.
    When you were 10 years old, she drove you all day, from soccer to gymnastics to one birthday party after another.
    You thanked her by jumping out of the car and never looking back.
    When you were 11 years old, she took you and your friends to the movies.
    You thanked her by asking to sit in a different row.
    When you were 12 years old, she warned you not to watch certain TV shows.
    You thanked her by waiting until she left the house.

    Those teenage years –
    When you were 13, she suggested a haircut that was becoming.
    You thanked her by telling her she had no taste.
    When you were 14, she paid for a month away at summer camp.
    You thanked her by forgetting to write a single letter.
    When you were 15, she came home from work, looking for a hug.
    You thanked her by having your bedroom door locked.
    When you were 16, she taught you how to driver her car.
    You thanked her by taking it every chance you could.
    When you were 17, she was expecting an important call.
    You thanked her by being on the phone all night.
    When you were 18, she cried at your high school graduation.
    You thanked her by staying out partying until dawn.

    Growing old and gray –
    When you were 19, she paid for your college tuition, drove you to campus, carried your bags.
    You thanked her by saying good-bye outside the dorm so you wouldn’t be embarrassed in front of your friends.
    When you were 20, she asked whether you were seeing anyone.
    You thanked her by saying, “It’s none of your business.”
    When you were 21, she suggested certain careers for your future.
    You thanked her by saying, “I don’t want to be like you.”
    When you were 22, she hugged you at your college graduation.
    You thanked her by asking whether she could pay for a trip to Europe.
    When you were 23, she gave you furniture for your first apartment.
    You thanked her by telling your friends it was ugly.
    When you were 24, she met your fiancé and asked about your plans for the future.
    You thanked her by glaring and growling, “Muuhh-ther, please!”
    When you were 25, she helped to pay for your wedding, and she cried and told you how deeply she loved you.
    You thanked her by moving halfway across the country.
    When you were 30, she called with some advice on the baby.
    You thanked her by telling her, “Things are different now.”
    When you were 40, she called to remind you of an relative’s birthday.
    You thanked her by saying you were “really busy right now.”
    When you were 50, she fell ill and needed you to take care of her.
    You thanked her by reading about the burden parents become to their children.

    And then, one day, she quietly moved. And everything you never did came crashing down like thunder. Let us take a moment of the time just to pay tribute/show appreciation to the SPECIAL person called MOTHER though some may not say it openly to their mother.
    There’s no substitute for her. Cherished every single moment. Though at times she may not be the best of friends, may not agree to our thoughts, she is still your mother!!! She will be there for you…to listen to your woes, your bragging, your
    frustrations, etc. Ask yourself. have you put aside enough time for her, to listen to her “blues” of working in the kitchen, her tiredness??? Be tactful, loving and still show her due respect though you may have a different view from her.
    Once gone, only fond memories of the past and also regrets will be left

    Oh my God up there, please hear my plea
    No, this time it is not for me
    But for my ma, a person so dear
    That when I need her, she’s always there.

    If you have some time to spare
    please listen to my prayer
    Bless her with happiness and health
    For your blessings is her only wealth.

    She’s the greatest lady in my world
    And I am so proud to be hers
    God you know there is no other
    As precious to me as my mother!
