A friend of mine in Jakarta, Indonesia is celebrating Mother’s Day today, December 22, 2012. Considering that it occurs in the month of May in America, we now have at least two times a year to acknowledge their importance. In reality, we should pay homage to them every day. One can never overemphasize the role they play in our lives.
The first time we experience bliss is in our Mother’s embrace.
They are our first link to God (SWT).
And should always in our hearts…
“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!
