Ed's Chesprocott Region Blog: There is Nothing Like A Mother's Love Mother's Day 2016

There is Nothing Like A Mother's Love Mother's Day 2016

There is a connection between a mother and her children that defies definition. It reaches past the sense of logic and no matter how many times a harsh remark from a developing child may cut, it is a bond that knows no limit and is almost impossible to destroy.

 

If times are tight, a mother will go without so that her children will. I once heard a line that went, the Children never knew the chicken had bones until mother died. Kids will break their hearts and cause many a tear, but they will not darken that light that shines in her eyes when she looks at them.

There is Nothing Like A Mother's Love Mother's Day 2016

A Mother will feel every pain her children have as if it was inflicted on her as well. A Mother will try to ease the burdens even though an obstinate child will insist that it needs to be done their way, even if blatantly wrong.

I will never forget a phrase my mother once used on me when I tried to remind her that I was old enough to make my own decisions: "Just wait until you are a mother and then you will understand, she said to me.  I just shrugged my shoulders and walked away thinking she had lost it.

 

 

Many years later, I may just have realized the strength of those words, and can appreciate that love when I see Mom today. I know I have said some things in anger or frustration that would have cut deeply and yet as if never said, a short while later it's as if I had just looked at her and told her how much I appreciated her.  I know I see it in my wife's eyes when she looks at her daughter and the grandsons.

It's Mother's Day, May 6, 2016. We will have a lunch with a few mothers today, but Mother Laura, at 93 will be the connection that brought all together.

 

Happy Mother's Day 2016

Ed you are very lucky to still have your mother with you.  I lost mine 8 years ago, but my memories of her are very special.
