I have met mothers from all cultures and we are so alike! Our children ARE our life. We go without to provide, and we lose ourselves to raise them. BUT our biggest job is to take an infant and train him to be a kind and moral human being. In other words, we’re hired by God!

Oprah Winfrey said,

Happy Mother’s Day to all women for their innate mothering qualities! So here’s a funny story from my book in tribute to my mother and my own children:

“…while I was growing up my mother had such a loving willingness to erase any misbehaviour I may have been involved in, she wouldn’t even believe me when I confided in her about the things I was doing.

Her saying, ‘Oh, honey, I know you wouldn’t do that’ made me strive to live up to her expectations. Her love and belief in me as a young person covered my errors with grace.

Mom&I.jpgWhen I was faced with my own children doing something wrong, I had no lack of love or pride in them either. Their wrongdoings were simply acknowledged, and together we explored a better way to do things the next time. Now, as adults, they laugh at the dreaded question I used to ask them:

‘Oh dear, that is a problem. How do you plan to fix this?’ At one time my youngest looked back at me sheepishly and said,

‘Can’t you just be like some other mothers and give me a spanking for being bad?

As loving parents, we always try to back up our children’s integrity. God does the same.”
