The Reasons I Love All Mothers

Holding my mother’s hands is the way I want to live. My mother is an angel that came from heaven to take care of me. I know that she is only human, but how much she loves me makes her divine. Please dear God, give her the health and the wealth she so much deserves. This is my prayer today, Mother’s Day in Bolivia, for my mother and all the mothers in the world.

The hand of a mother is special. When you hold it, you can feel the tears and roughness of life incarnated in the tough skin of a mother’s hands. Even if she takes good care of her hands, they end up showing the hard work it means to be a mom. Ironically, a mother’s hands are also the softest nest for everyone. Although you may be very old to search for your mother’s caress, she will caress you with the softest hands if you need her.

Why is this so? Because she is the one in charge of making life happen on earth. The only true job of humanity is to keep life in the surface of earth in the best shape possible, although humanity did not understand this yet. This is the only job worth being paid for, but ironically it is also the only one paid only with kisses from cute babies. “The work for life” is what I call the awesome transformation of one cell into a complete human being.

There is a lot of order needed to be achieved in order to bring one life into earth. Think about what the minimum wage should be for such work, next time you hold your mother’s hands.

wonderful mothers

mothers are the biggest support for their children's. No matter what they are always around you to look after you.
Bo matter how tired they are, they are always active to feed their childrens first. They know only to give.

I also pray for all the mothers in this world. Give them all the happiness of the world.
keep sharing with us more and more.

regards,
Pooza

I just move to Portland about

I just move to Portland about two weeks ago from Albuquerque, where my mom lives. I miss her deeply and realize everyday that she means the world to me. She has supported me in every way imaginable and I could't even try to express how much I love her. I hope that every person can feel the love and respect that I feel for my mom,

I love you Holly Anne Pence (my mom)!!!

Thank you for sharing such

Thank you for sharing such kind words about mothers. Indeed, mothers are not acknowledged enough for the tremendous jobs they do as care givers, the nurturing they give and as their role as educators. Educate a girl child, you educate a village. That is the will power mothers carry all over the world. God bless all mothers!

Peace!

There are many women that

There are many women that bear offspring without the capacity or willingness to be mothers to nurture fully human homo sapiens.
