MOTHER…

The absence of a mother allows for a profound reflection of the essential role that only mothers can play in our journey of life… a role that mothers embrace, a role that no one else, despite a magnitude of attempts, can ever fill…

This year will be 23 years since I lost my mother, and although I have been without her for longer than I was privileged to have her presence beside me, there are still days I become acutely aware of the void that is left by her absence.
But this post is not about me, or even about my mother.
It is my hope that this deep reflection will enable you to realize your value in the life of your child.
Dear Mom, this is my tribute to you- that you may know that long after you are gone, you will remain the architecture that pieces together your child’s world, and that becomes the framework of their soul…
A mother is her child’s most significant supporter,
Her belief in them pulls them across life’s finish lines…
At times she seats herself in the front row of their adventures,
At other times she cheers passionately from the sidelines.
A mother knows when to push a little harder…
when to step back for a while… and when to embrace…
She knows the pain her child often hides from the world,
She is her child’s greatest comforter when they hold back the tears… and sees what no words can utter…
A mother guides, without breaking her child’s spirit,
She motivates through frustrations, she encourages through disappointments.
She knows no envy, but celebrates and is overwhelmed with pride,
Rejoicing in her child’s accomplishments, no matter how small these may be…
The world knows no other strength like a mother’s protection,
It knows no other gentleness like her tender embrace…
She is a beacon, a lighthouse, a rock amidst the chaos,
She is her child’s fountain of joy and delight…
A mother is the foundation of the eternal pillars of her child’s soul…
Dear Mom, despite the hellish days you at times have, the evenings your pillow may be moist from tears, the days you wish you could have a ‘do-over’…
May you know this Mother’s Day that you are irreplaceable…your worth has no words… your value is greater than Jadeite…
May you know your significance in the eyes of your child,
And in the eyes of the world…
May you know you are building eternal foundations of a soul…
Happy Mother’s Day.

With heartfelt love
Naomi ❤️
