Mother's Day Celebration
I am unusually quiet this Mother's Day. My family members and friends are busy talking about their Mother's Day Celebration. Our Wassap Groups are teeming with images and messages about Mother's Day. I logged on to Facebook earlier and my walls were full of Mother's Day posts.
What am I doing on Mother's Day? Nothing much actually because I don't even feel like celebrating it in the normal ways other people would celebrate it; with much food, drinks, joy and merriment. We have had two festive weekends with relatives and friends coming over for dinners. This is a quiet weekend that I wish to savor in a mother's day contemplative mood.
Its 5.0 pm. I finally can sit uninterrupted to start this blog. The children are playing happily outside. So, the best thing I could think of doing today is to relaunch a new blog after nearly 4 years of not writing anything. I have been wanting to sit down and write something for so long but I could never find the time. So, I am claiming this short window of available time specially for blogging.
Since I have not been writing for so long, ideas do not flow so freely. So, to complete this post, I will just add the message with some modification that I wrote for all the mothers in my family who by the way have gone through a lot of things this year.
My Thoughts on Mother's Day
I am quiet on Mother's Day because like most mothers, I am feeling very tired today.
We might not even have the times or energy to go out to celebrate it in a special way. Taking the decision to be a mother is the bravest decision any woman can make that will change her entire life. Becoming a mother is a very challenging and risky job. Your husband, your children, the well being of all family members all depends a lot on you.It is a job that never ends and because it never ends we get to be so good at doing everything without taking a break. When we do take a break, everyone will bother you. I had a very strong and hardworking mum. I owe all of my strengths and tenacity to her. I just can't fathom how she managed to do everything she did without ever breaking down.
To all my fellow mothers, may this day reminds us to constantly rededicate our life to God and to pray for continuous strength, wisdom and patience. Our journey through life as mothers is a long, long one.There will always be drama, joys, laughter and tears . There will always be happiness and disappointment. We need all the love, the mercy and grace from God to make it through. As mothers, we live and we die for God.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO ALL.
