How can a mother protect her children?
How can she teach them how to defend themselves if they are being sexually abused?
How can she convince them to be always honest and franc, and not to protect the person who is aggressing them or hurting them?
How can a mother protect herself from an abusive husband, in order to maintain the family ties?
How can a mother who is left alone, assume all the financial responsibilities and the education of her children?
How can a mother explain to her children that she might have made a bad choice in life without having to hurt their feelings by mentioning bad things about their father, and to teach them to love him despite all the hurt because after all, they are the beautiful gifts of that marriage?
How can a mother show her children all the attention and the affection they deserve, if she, herself, needs to have someone who can take care of her, and show her love and tenderness?
A special thought to all the mothers in the world, the ones who are happy and the ones who are suffering, the ones who are assuming their responsibilities and the ones who give up and are unable to continue, the ones who are living and the ones who passed.
Being a mother is sacrificing someone’s own life for the sake of the children.
A special thought to all the mothers who will read this and to all the persons who have lost their mother.
I was trying last night to copy and save some of the documents I had on my laptop which last year was used as a weapon against me. Apparently my bones are not that strong since the laptop broken in two pieces over my head, but the hard disk could be recovered.
I was happy to find my diary of 2007. The text above was written on August 30,2007.
Tomorrow is Mother's day in my country. On this day children demonstrate their love and gratitude to the person who gave birth to them, nurtured them and loved them the most.
No one ever can replace a mother. The bonds shared between a child and his mum are strong and special. Whatever problems occur in their relationship, one can never blame one's mother forever.
I was confessing to a Priest once that I was neglecting prayers and Church on Sunday, and I loved his reply as he said: "you're the mother of three children, that itself is the strongest prayer one can offer". He then explained to me that God has a very particular love for all mothers because of all the pain they go through all life long for their children. Be a good mother, You would be doing God's will.
Mothers shouldn't be celebrated once a year. Mothers are Life, and life is celebrated every single day.
Tomorrow is Mothers' day, first day of the Spring season, the flower season that brings warmth and smiles. For the last 10 years, since my mother joined Teta, it was a day of anger and sadness, this year it will be a day of gratitude and love.
I love you Mami. Thank you for all your sacrifices during 34 years of my life. Happy Mother's day! I will not try to ignore you this year. This time I will ask Teta to give you a Hug from me.
