A Mother’s Love

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.

Hi Emily,
Hope all is well with your new maid =)
I hope I need not experience that phase you mentioned but it’s inevitable as my son grows by the day.
By the way, the graphics you use are always so cute and colourful, where do you get them from?

Hi Irene,
Our new helper is still in her learning phase, she is also struggling to ‘build rapport’ with Little Edison. But most of the time, he is not co-operative with her.

The picture in this post is taken from The rest of the graphics in my blog are mostly from random search in the internet. Glad you like them.
