Don’t forget to look back

I remember when the mother announced to the people she knows and to the relatives how proud she is. She is so proud because with all the challenges and trials in life, still she is able to send her kids to school because she wants them to become a successful one in the future. The mother sacrifices many things just to make sure her kids are okay. She is the kind of mother that every child would ask for. I can tell that her kids are so lucky to have a mother like her.

Because of the sacrifices her body becomes weak and needs someone to take good care of her, no one is willing to give it to her even the love from her family. Her eldest daughter who is now a teacher, doesn’t even appreciate the sacrifices of her mother back when she was still studying. Now that she is already professional and can support herself, she doesn’t want to look back and give recognition to the person who is responsible for her success. She evens said, her mother doesn’t help her at all. After hearing it, I felt angry to her daughter. The never of her to say it. I want to slap her but opted not to because it is none of my business. The mother just cried and chose not to speak.

To her daughter, if you have time examine yourself and look at yourself without the mother on your side. No matter how successful you are, you will never be happy because you forgot to look back and give thanks to the person who helps you. Remember ” NO MAN IS AN ISLAND”.

Stolen Babies

Nothing compares the happiness of the mother the moment she finally giving birth after nine months of patiently waiting. Excited to see and carry her baby for the first time on her arms. I have seen in my friends, sister and sister-in-law the happiness in their faces when they finally carried and touched their babies for the first time. I even saw some mothers do cry. Tears of happiness I must say and always kissed their babies.

But what I have seen early this evening in the news is a mother crying because her baby was stolen. I was shocked thinking how bad some people are to steal a baby and so sad to seeing the tears of the mother. Looking at the things she bought for her baby and touching it. She did not able to hug and kiss her baby that long because it was taken away from her from someone she doesn’t even knows. Her reason of doing such bad action is a big question mark to the parents. Though they saw the girl who stole her baby in the CCTV camera, they are still clueless of where the baby is. The police have the sketch of that person already but still do not know where to find her. The tears of the mother will never stop falling until her baby will be under her care. I hope and pray that this will be over soon and that they will finally see her baby soon.

Looking Back….

While I taking my father a bath this morning, memory comes back when I saw my father doing the same thing to my sickly mother. I was only nine years old when my mother got very sick. I cannot help my sickly mother because I am too young to do it. I am thinking if my mother will still alive I can take good care of her when she is in need. I miss my mother so much every time I saw mothers with their kids.

I saw my mother before in a worse condition, all I can do it to watch her and cry seeing her in pain. I felt so sorry for my mother because my sister and me are too young to take good care of her. It is my cousin who takes good care of my mother. While sitting, I am looking back from our life before. It is still fresh in my mind the condition of my mother before. And looking at my father now, nothing is different. They both need our help, care and our love. If only I could turn back the time, I will take care of my mother like I did to my father. I didn’t give the chance to do it because I was too young. I am taking good care of my father the past week, and every time I touch him I always remember my mother and I always think that I am doing the same thing to my mother.

Expectant Mother

Nothing compares the happiness of a woman when they are expecting a child. It is indeed a wonderful gift from up above. Not all has given this kind of gift from God that is why we have to be thankful for. Before if a woman is expecting an angel to see the beauty on earth it is understood that they are married woman. This little angel is a gift because this angel will complete the family, brings the smile and happiness in the family.

Nowadays where there are lots of unmarried woman who are expecting, some are too young to get pregnant. Because of this responsibilities, the man they choose to love leave them and not man enough to face their responsibilities. Some prefer to abort it but others are strong enough to face it alone. I salute to those single women who are courageous enough to continue the life that God has given to them. It is a blessing and we should accept it with all our hearts alone or with someone.

If you are an expectant mother, savor the moment and enjoy the journey towards motherhood. It is a privilege, therefore love it and be thankful.
