“A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.” ~ Tenneva Jordan
Your mother carried you in her womb for nine months or less. If she survived that uncertain period (because some don’t make it) she then endured hours of pain in labour.
She nurtured you
Giving birth was the start of your journey together. Your mother held you, her new treasure, tenderly in her arms. You were helpless and depended totally on her for nurturing.
- She gave you milk when you were hungry.
- Changed your nappy when you were wet.
- Comforted you when you cried.
- Cuddled you when you were afraid.
- Picked you up when you fell over and cut your knees.
- Fed you with medicine and kisses when you were ill.
- Kept you warm and cosy when you were cold.
- Protected you from danger and harm.
“Who ran to help me when I fell, And would some pretty story tell, Or kiss the place to make it well? My mother.” ~Ann Taylor
She loved you as she cared for you. There’s no love more fulfilling than that between a mother and her new born baby.
