The actions of what our mothers do for our sake are most often taken for granted. We often forget all the things they do for us when all their acts are being overshadowed by our self-centeredness. Let us take a moment to remind ourselves how great a mother’s impact is to us. Let us remember how important these women are in our lives.
A Mother’s Touch
Even before you were born, a mother’s touch already has a significant effect on your growth. Her touch was a mother’s impact on how you developed on her womb. The way she rubbed her belly made you kick inside her womb. When you came out in the world, it was her hand which held you most of the time. It was her hand that helped you after you fell. It was her hand you would hold when you crossed the street. As you grow up, you would have those bad days or those days when you would feel really scared. It was your mother’s tap on your shoulder that encouraged you to face the day with strength and confidence. Through those rough days when you would end up going home in tears, it was your mother’s hug that would make you stop crying. It was her hug that would make you feel a lot better. That is a mother’s impact.
A Mother’s Smile
A mother’s first reaction upon knowing you were growing inside her womb is a feeling of joy. It is that smile on her face that marked her joy and excitement of having you. When she was in the delivery room, her smile will appear again as soon as you come out of her and you are placed on her chest by the doctor. Even when all her energy is drained during delivery, she will still put an effort to smile on you to welcome you into the world. As a kid, it is your mother’s smile that brightened up your day. Remember how she comes home with a big grin on her face because she is about to see you after a long day of being away from you.
A Mother’s Praise
Growing up, we all experienced being teased in school for how we look, for what we wore, and for anything. But, we are constantly praised by our mother. She would always tell you how beautiful you are, how smart you are, and how funny you are. She would always emphasize all the positive things about you. In becoming an adult, it would always be her praises that we would seek from the grades that we get in school to how we raise our own kids. A mother’s praise even motivates us farther to doing better and achieving more. That is the mother’s impact on her children.
