A mother's love can not be measured

Mama you carried me in your womb for nine months, experienced labor pain, nursed me, spent sleepless nights, taught me how to direct my first step and till to date you're still guiding me on what is right or wrong. What would I do without you mama? Where would I be now? The priceless thing yet most expensive is a mothers love. Looking at you mama running up and down just to ensure I proceed with my education yet i'm suppose to be providing for you. It pricks and breaks my heart into pieces to see you struggle so much mama, for over ten years since dad passed away it's been you and you alone mama. Sometimes I sit back and wonder how you manage and where does all that strength come from mama? If there is anyone who have faced all forms of abuse is you, yet you are very beautiful but you decided to sacrifice for us. How do I repay you mama? Only Jehovah God will repay but I pray that I find a way soon and give you the gift you've wished for since dad departed from us and we were robbed of everything by the same people who were suppose to protect us; his own brothers, for a very long time a place to call home your own place mama. I know you've been through a lot loosing both your parents(my grandparents) and the only brother (my uncle) you had. Sometimes I know you feel like you're all alone because i've come to realise that no matter how old we are, we will always long for a mothers love. Despite all the pain and sorrows I believe that there will be light at the end of the tunnel for our family mom. I love you mommy and I truly treasure you. May God give you health because your dream will become a reality. As the holly scriptures states that whoever knocks the door shall be opened, he who ask shall be given in abundance all we need is faith because faith can move mountain. Seeing is not believing but believing is seeing.

Thank you for sharing such

Thank you for sharing such beautiful thoughts about your mother. I believe there is no role more important than that of "mother." I am proud to be the mother of a beautiful 17-year-old and have had the privlege of influencing the lives of my three stepchildren and two teens for whom I've been guardian. More mothers need to take seriously the role they have in guiding and nurturing children. There are some who throw away this amazing privlege. I know from your words that you will be an amazing mother when the time comes (if it hasn't already). Blessings on you!
