For those who have been, are and going there, they would have the best experience in relating what motherhood means to them, naturally.
As we watch our little one grow and achieve his milestones, from the first time he rolled, sat up, crawled and started walking we feel nothing less than pride, excitement and extreme joy as he beams so delightfully at his accomplishments.
It's a maternal instinct that really comes naturally where a mum 'just knows'. She becomes a 'mother hen' to her 'chicks' constantly on the look out for their safety and keeping them in check, protecting them under her feathers.
A child can do no wrong in their mother's eyes, no matter how far they attempt to push the boundaries, sometimes.
As they grow through their different stages, dropping/throwing food on the floor, displaying tantrums in public, wanting things they can't have....it certainly gets more challenging and as a mum you find yourself saying 'no', 'no' until you seem like a broken record player...
For some of it, it's just natural behaviour as they get exposed to new things around them. Sometimes, though, we have to turn on the 'police mum' mode where we have no choice but to nip it in the bud there and then.
Then, when you watch them fall asleep at night, they are just the most precious angels that could ever touch your heart. For most, a child just brings about so much love that everyday is just a blessing to have them in one's life. They bring new meaning to life when they're around you.
Patience, love, tolerance, a calm tone and understanding are key ingredients to be able to nurture your child in a loving and stable environment.
Children are a blessing and a beautiful gift from God.
A Mother's Love
A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.
