Ten Children And Only Four Pieces Of Meat

Corona virus is serious but this should not stop us from celebrating those who went through thick,thin and death to bring us to the world.Imagine a world without women or mothers.No woman, No world!! We celebrate mothers and motherhood for a simple reason: moms have a tremendous impact on the world we live in.Most successful people on earth owe at least part of their success to their mothers. Mothers are indeed angels sent to the world in every form.They borrow,lend and fast for the success of their family.

Occasionally,they suffer in silence carrying on in face of harsh economic realities which crushes even the strongest of men.That the multitask in all fronts is not an overstatement.They are the best inspirations, motivators, and appreciators of every act of kindness and love.They are Love personified.Their role in bringing up Godly and responsible children in the society cannot be overlooked.

A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.To describe a mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power.

Having children for most women, puts the whole world into perspective. Everything else just disappears.

According to Oprah Winfrey,''Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother''.All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. It takes the same energy to think small as to think big.' Whenever I went to her, thinking one way about something, she'd say, 'Bigger.' Whatever I wanted out of life, she'd say, 'Bigger.' I grew up wanting a little bit more. I was taught to aim high."

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.

All women become like their mothers. A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of meat left in the pot for a family of ten, promptly announces she never did care for meat and shares what is left with her eight children and her husband.

Mothers sometimes yell and get angry at their children, Lean in real close and whisper, all because she wants the best for them.When she speaks it carries weight and when she doesn't ,it carries more weight. Occasionally, even her look carries enough message of approval or otherwise.

All mothers are working mothers.Yes,they are ever working until their legs become weary and carry them no ore.She retires the day she dies.While on her sick bed,she is worried sick not about her children because is confident they have what it takes to survive the tough times but worried about the grandchildren and sometimes great grandchildren.

Mothers are never really alone in their thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.She is not a person to lean on, but a person to make leaning unnecessary.

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness. Mothers exhorted her children at every opportunity to jump at the sun. They might not land on the sun, but at least they would get off the ground and possibly land among the stars.

There is nothing as sincere as a mother's kiss. Whatever else is unsure in this stinking dunghill of a world, a mother's love is not.Our mothers always remain the strangest and boldest people we've ever met.There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.

My mother told me, the best weapon in life is the smile therefore I challenge you to give your mother a call or say a prayer for her as we celebrate mothers Day. No corona Virus can stop me from celebrating my mother,my wife,my sister or my daughter.
