Changing environment, learning new language and new culture,being a wife and a mother, living far away from families and friends, I have come to share my views, thoughts, feelings, ideas on so many things that I cherish.

From Mommy to Mom to Mother

 This is one of those forwarded mails that says 'share this with 5 people you know'. Any way I decided not just to share it with 5 people but with all my readers.

 MOTHERS 

*Real Mothers don't eat quiche;
They don't have time to make it.

* Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils 
 Are probably in the sandbox. 

*Real Mothers often have sticky floors, 
 Filthy ovens and happy kids. 

*Real Mothers know that dried play dough 
 Doesn't come out of carpets. 

*Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up....... 

* Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' 
 And get their answer when a little voice says, 'Because I love you best.' 

*Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade... 
It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother..... 

The Images of Mother 

*  4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything! 
*  8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot! 
*12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't know everything!   
*14 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother? She wouldn’t have a clue.
*16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's so five minutes ago.
*18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!
*25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, she might know a little bit about it!
  *35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.  
*45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it? 
*65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom. 

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. 
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.  It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

If you want to pass it on, you can tweet it.

Thanks for this reminder of what an incredible privilege it is to be a mom. I have kids from preschool to high school and every stage is filled with joy. We just have to open our eyes and see it!

Oh my goodness, this brought a tear to my eye! I have seen similar chain emails and facebook posts, and every time, I couldn't agree more. Mothers are so special, and you never really know that until you become a mother yourself. The self-sacrifice and unconditional love mothers have is commendable to say the least.


Visiting you from vB :)
