Mothers and Paradise

“And revere the wombs that bore you, for God is ever watchful over you.” (4:1)

On this day, I feel a certain sadness for all the mothers who have passed, but gave thanks to the children they have left behind.

It has been said that, “Paradise lies at the feet of mothers.” I truly believe this. Pregnancy is no easy task, but they endure it to bring us into this world. In the beginning they protect us from our fears, both unknown and apparent. They nurture our hurts. They help us to develop into the fine young men and women we are capable of becoming. On this day, I acknowledge you but love all of you, always! We would not be here if not for you.

Happy Mother’s Day!
