As the old saying goes “This is gonna hurt me a lot more than it hurts you.” I never felt the significance of it until I became a mother.
Countless times, I have to give my son a stern NO, scold him, punish him, or some other form of discipline, just to teach him a valuable life lesson or to protect him in some ways. It always hurt me thousand times more than it did for him.
During my growing up, I never realized that whenever I was upset with my mother, she would be equally upset too. I thought that a mother is supposed to love their children, protect them and bring them happiness. Until I have Little Edison, I started to realize that by protecting him; sometimes I may have to hurt him in some ways.
I strive to shield him from any pain and unhappiness. I pray for God to protect him and bless him with good health. I pray for God to give me the strength and wisdom to raise him to be a kind, compassionate and responsible adult.
A mother’s love is the most complete and satisfying love on earth.
A mother’s love is eternal.
A mother’s love in unconditional.
I thank God for allowing me to be a mother to Little Edison.
