Default Quotes on Motherhood :)

Hi ladies! I don't know if this is the right board for this thread. I was about to post this on the Off Topic board but my instinct tells me not to. Haha. I had to post it in here as I believe that the quotes we share with each other will continually inspire us to become the best mum that we could be! We're all children of God and one way or another, despite our life's differences, all of us have our mums whom God has made his instrument to give us the gift of life. The quotes in here aren't only on our own motherhood, but to celebrate the love our own moms shared with us. So let's keep the quotes coming!!

Default Letter from a Mother to her Daughter

Letter from a Mother to a Daughter:

"My dear girl, the day you see Iím getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what Iím going through. If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, donít interrupt to say: ďYou said the same thing a minute agoĒ... Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep. When I donít want to take a bath, donít be mad and donít embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl? When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and donít look at me that way... remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with lifeís issues every day... the day you see Iím getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what Iím going through. If I occasionally lose track of what weíre talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I canít, donít be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you. And when my old, tired legs donít let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked. When those days come, donít feel sad... just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love. Iíll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love Iíve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you... my darling daughter."

@ Abana - Oh, so touching! Now that I'm giving birth anytime during the remaining days of January, I feel excited and thankful. Excited coz I'm going to be a mom, and thankful to my mom for giving her best in raising me as a good and loving person I believe I ought to be.

@ Abigail - It is indeed true! Doesn't end in childbirth but it's only just the beginning of something very fulfilling.

Thank you for sharing this Abana. My mom is as strong woman. I believe she's very strong physically and had loads of energy before. When my dad passed away, suddenly she became a little weak physically . The death of my dad was really an eye-opener. It's true the thought of "death" is so faraway if it hasn't happened to you before. I love my dad but the pain of losing him was unimaginable. Now I became more protective to my mom. As much as possible, I've realized how brief life is. And every time I look through her eyes, it's as if I am also looking at my dad's.

You're right Baha... Sad but true.

Default I love Khalil Gibran

"The mother is everything - she is our consolation in sorrow, our hope in misery, and our strength in weakness. She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy, and forgiveness. He who loses his mother loses a pure soul who blesses and guards him constantly."

- Kahlil Gibran
