Mothers

Hot 3826 views. 2016-3-9 22:56

Do you know what is the most beautiful word in the world? Yes, it is Mother.
 
From the day mothers know they are pregnent, they will regard their babies as the most important treasures in their lives. After they give birth to their children, they feed them and teach them how to walk, speak, put on clothes, tie their own shoe lace, and so on. To give their babies better growing-up envoriment, some of them even give up their jobs, becoming full-time housewives. They do laundries, make diners, clean rooms, etc. Some of these children might never be grateful, because they get used to it and take it for granted.
 
 As time goes by, children grow up and become more independent. They move to big cities, go to colleges, get jobs, and settle down. Prabably they give their own mother a phone call every few days during college time, then every week when they have a job.They go back to their hometown to visit their mothers once or twice a year.  After they get married, build new families, and have their own babies, they call their mothers less and less and probably could not go to visit them for many years.
 
These aged mothers always look forward to phone calls from their sons or daughters. They hope to spend more time with them. The turth is that they only can get older and older, more and more lonely. So sad!
 
When these new mothers look at their own little babies and feel the way their mothers used to feel, will they think about their own mother?
 
I know child-rearing is a natural thing. Some people even say it is a social resposibility. But still, it is cruel. Anyway, as a daughter, I will love my mother as much as I can and hope all you guys can do the same.

I am a mother and I am a daugther too, to be honest when I am old, I don;t want my kid to go back home often even I wish he can, everybody has their own life, give the birth to them it doesn't mean that they belong to you, don't ask the kid too much, as long as they are health and happy, it is good enough, I can help myself.

You are quite generous and understanding. Parents are always concerned about their children even when their children reach old age. Your approach is fine because it allows the children to show concern on their own without pressure. So long as they are living happy and contented lives, the parents have successfully raised their children. Children would automatically know what to do when there are no pressures from their parents. That is human nature.

The picture is interesting but quite scary to see the parent in a wheel chair in old age. I wonder why nature programmed people to become weak and reliant in old age. Why can't people just switch off without burdening others. Well, nature is really mysterious and we can never truly understand what happens in life.

However, I hope to encourage everyone to provide all necessary support and care for aged parents as they have sacrificed a lot to raise us and gave us the best. All we need to do is to ensure that they pass old age respectfully.

You got some points of that. Another side of the thing is children are also having their lives. Yup, we have to admit that. Therefore, they probably can not go back home to see their mothers on regular basis.

As a mother, she experienced the birth and owns the strong attachment on her kids. It is the best love from mom who is always with her kids, and supportive of them.

Anyway, we should remember that the mercy and love from our mothers. If we do not go back home, it does not mean that we do not miss them.

I think that you are a good and filial daughter.

All these nature things are fine, as long as they could be the ways they are supposed to be, like raising children. Parents unconditionally bring up their children. In return, children should pay some care and respect. The pity is that even this is a fantasy to some parents in some cases. Last week, break news, a 22-year old guy had premeditatedly killed his own mother and wrapped the bady with 10 layers plastic bags. What an animal!

Agree. However, I really cannot understand how a person can be so evil as to kill his own mother... the one who fed, protected and raised him.

Not yet. That is the same question people are always keeping ask me like that.

"Do you  get married?"
"No."
"Oh, so, do you have a girlfriend?"
"Not yet."
"Why"
"There is no why, probably I just do not meet the right time and the right girl."

Above is the conservation that people around keep asking me a lot, and finally they will ask that if my family urgently order me to find a girl and get married. I will tell them, they are ok with my decision and never push me too much.

All right. Hope you will find your Miss Right at the right time.
