A Mother's Love Endures...

Children suffer the most when parents quarrel and when they divorce the damage can be irreparable.

Today’s story of children being reunited with their mother is heart-warming and we all hope they will be able to forgive their parents for their past unhappiness.

Even though the children had to remain in Malaysia there was no reason not to allow their natural mother to see them for the past 14 years.

A mother’s love is unlimited and unconditional whereas a father’s love is different. Maybe it has got to do with the biological process of creation. A mother must spend growing her baby and then nursing it for months whereas a father is more a peripheral figure though there are some fathers who are very devoted to their children.

Here is a poem for mothers. You can read more poems here.


A Mother's love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,

It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .

It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .

It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .

It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .

A many splendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

Have a good day and try to give your mother and father a hug today

Yes Angus, a mother's love does endure, no matter what. I've seen that in my own mom and now I'm reliving that with my wife vis a vis my lovely baby girl. Oh the greatness of motherhood.

Congrats on being a father!

I guess she must be your first child.
You now know that having a child is the most life-changing experience one can have.
