The moment a child is born, a mother is born as well. One may only exist as long as the other does. It is because of this that such a pure love is cultivated within their relationship.

More than seventy percent of women between the ages of 16 to 30 want to be mothers even though it means that they have to sacrifice a major part of their time, and preparing to be responsible for the life of another human being. It is within the nature of a mother to put her child’s safety first as well as to provide them with the best care possible.

Realizing that being a mother is a full time job that comes with its ups and downs, The Elevation Church decided to carry out a small experiment for Mother’s Day. After picking a sample of around 20 women, they interviewed each of them asking how it feels to be a mother. As expected, most of them highlighted their defaults and wished to improve in certain aspects to become better role models and more attentive parents. Yet the story switched drastically, when a few days later, during Mother’s day, the moms saw an interview of their respective children commenting about them. Words such as “heroes”, “awesome” and “perfect” captivated the mothers, leaving all of them in tears of joy.

We are always conscious about the flaws and mistakes that we make and we almost never stop to realize our virtues. We are people made up of more than one aspect, so why should we let it define us? We should remind ourselves to try to see who we are through the eyes of a person who loves us, and there is no one better for that job than a son. As Arlene benedict said, “(…) to a child’s ear, ‘mother’ is magic in any language.”
