I woke up at 3am , went to YouTube to continue watching the movie I paused the night before. It was a Nido commercial that showed a dad getting his daughter excited with fun and play while the mom was earnestly trying to get her child to study and keep everything else together. Perhaps she got stressed out one time and utterred an “Uhmm!” abruptly and pointed to the waiting assignment which laid on the table. Her child protested, belittling her mother and slamming the door of her room behind her . Later, she found out that everything in her life was great because of her mother’s sacrifice.
Please see video: There is no sacrifice too great for a mother’s love.
We often realize the affection and sacrifice of our mothers when it’s too late, after we’re married and can’t have much time to get to know her better and be her friend. For us mothers, may we make our mothers proud and thank her for everything she is.
“With wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.” Proverbs 31:26-27
Cheers to Our Mothers and to us. Be reminded: You are special and loved.
