To the Woman Called Mother • 05.11.10
Motherhood naturally develops in a woman a nurturing instinct that continues even after her baby has been born and the umbilical cord that binds mother and child together has been cut. This nurturing instinct is perhaps what enables her to love her child unconditionally.
In real-life as well as in fiction, we know of mothers who go to great lengths to protect and provide for their children. For a mother, there is no sacrifice too great for her to do to ensure the wellbeing of her family. She would gladly give her life if it would save her children from harm.
The kind of love only a mother is capable of giving continually awes sons and daughters throughout generations. It inspires them to admire, love, respect, and honor the gentle soul they call Mother. And so tributes for mothers abound—songs that thug at the heart, words that underscore the pureness of a mother’s love, and artworks that celebrate motherhood.
