Mother’s Day is indeed a remarkable one, a special day for all who have been born into this world. This is a golden opportunity to show, perhaps with some small gesture, the love and appreciation children have for their mothers.
With the passing away of one’s beloved mother one realizes their immense loss, a creation of a void that no one else can fill.
My mother passed away very many years back yet I can, at any time day or night, visualize her close to me. She was a unique personality- a mother not only to her children and grandchildren, who adored her, but to all around. She illustrated to us, her children, her love and understanding by her day-to-day actions.
As a mother I have had the privilege to raise socially responsible children who are assets to their own families, who believe that the greatest gift of all is to be able to be good to their parents. They in turn are themselves bringing up useful citizens wherever they are in the world.
In today’s world the role of a mother is becoming increasingly demanding. Unlike the good old days of my time, the mothers of today are indeed privileged if they are able to be at home, looking after their own family, running an efficient home, and pursuing hobbles in any sphere.Alas, times have changed dramatically. Today both men and women are qualified and capable enough to be independent financially, and have careers of their own.
As I look around my family, my daughters seem to face the ongoing challenge of motherhood intelligently, devoting time and attention to the welfare of their offspring. I anticipate that they, like me, will be satisfied in the role that they have played.
And I think that I speak for all mothers when I say that the hope for our future generations is to grow up in a world of peace, tranquillity, and prosperity for all- a safe place, free of violence and strife.
