Mother’s Day: An Afterthought

It’s almost a week after people in many places around the globe celebrated Mother’s Day; it’s my youngest son’s birthday, too. He who once was my baby is now himself a father of two lovely, adorable little girls. And here is an afterthought.

In my heart of hearts, my sons will always be babies, as I’d often see them in my dreams…such until they entered their 30s, for now they have grown big.

Still in my heart, I cradle them close like I did when they were infants; In my eyes, I see the look they had when they’d beseech me when they were children.

Part of a mother’s soul perhaps would not let their children go, though grow they must to tackle their own.

A mother will always feel all the range of emotions she had when her children were still small because her love will always be.

Now am grateful for the care, support and love they bestow on me in turn…A mother’s heart flutters with joy!

While it’s almost a week after people in many places around the globe celebrated Mother’s Day, my celebration of being a mother continues each day.

To my son celebrating his birthday today, I love you with all my heart.
