Appreciation of Mother's Love

It is the 20th day of April and for the past couple of days, I have lost track of date and time seems to move fast sometimes and slow other times. It has been a month my Field Practical Training ended, and that is to say I have been home for one month now. Although, I have been sleeping less than I usually do, I can't help but wonder what is it I really do with my time.

Ever since I had gained admission into the university I have been spending a lot of time away from my immediate family as my school is located in another state from where they are. I would always come home on holidays so I can spend time with them and each time I arrive my mom is always the first person to welcome me, almost like she knew exactly when I'd arrive and where to wait for me.

The first thing she'd always do is give me a hug. I have come to suspect it as a way of examining how much weight I had lost, as she would always look at me with a sad expression afterwards and sigh saying that I had lost a lot of weight. I would always ask her if she was expecting me to come back with more weight.

This evening, my younger sister returned home too after concluding her first semester exam in her sophomore year. My mom had shouted at how much weight she had lost and couldn't stop emphasizing how visible her neck bone is. The prominence of the neck bone has always been a yardstick to measure how much weight you have gain. It is the most important thing used in judging whether or not you had lost weight or you are gaining weight.

It is no news that mothers can be overly dramatic as they usually exaggerate matters. But this is born out of love, concern and care they have towards their child(ren). I have always believed that the purest love is the love of a mother. Some can argue that why wouldn't a mother love their offspring after all the pain and ordeal they had gone through during pregnancy and childbirth because of the child.

Let's look at it this way; why would you love someone so much despite all the pains of pregnancy and childbirth? Truth is that the love of a mother is a natural instinct. I believe mothers see their child as an extension of themselves. As a person, I can imagine watching a doctor bring out another human from inside me and thinking this is literally flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone. Having two cells come together inside of you and continue to undergo what Derek Llewellyn-Jones had described as A WONDROUS GROWTH for about 40 weeks.

Mothers are very special they sacrifice every thing for their offspring, even their own happiness. Long as their child(ren) is happy, they are happy. Just the other day, I was watching a documentary on Nat Geo Wild, and this mother leopard had to attack another male leopard just to protect her cub from it. The bravery. I had found that to be a raw expression of the love of a mother for her offspring.

I remember I used to laugh at hens with new chicks when they open their feathers anytime I go close to them. Even though there is a huge difference in size, they are never scared to protect their chicks no matter how big the intruder is. But make no mistake, they might be small, but you don't want to mess with a mother hen, they attack with the kind of ferocity that is opposite to their size.

That is not to say that all mothers are responsible and willing to love and care for their child(ren) as there has been cases of mothers abandoning their babies on the road or leaving them at the care of their fathers or relations or strangers.

Disclaimer: This is not by any means intended to vilify fathers or demean their efforts as parents. It is a special article dedicated specially to mothers and aimed to remind them that their efforts are very much appreciated (At least by me).

With that said, I want to make a special shout-out to mothers I know on this platform @BCH_LOVER @GarrethGrey07 @tired_momma @rodriguezpct @Theblackdoll @Trifecta among others. All your motherly efforts are appreciated.

Thank You For Reading πŸ–€πŸ–€

Nothing can compare to a mother's love. No matter what you do, they'll still care. My mum used to check me whenever I returned too lol, she'll always complain about the weight loss

A mother's love has always been the greatest love in life for me. Mothers are angels who protect their children, but indeed there are mothers without a heart who abandon their children. May God bless your mother and prolong her life.

Mother's love is great and unconditional. They wouldn't want their children to suffer and they try their best on them.

Mothers ehn, they are legend, the part you said your mum will look at your neckbone always after returning back from school got me cause that's the same thing my mum will always doπŸ˜‚.. I've gotten so use to it that even when I'm in school, I always do not want to overwork myself so that i won't reduce but I guess overstressing in school is so inevitable.

It is inevitable. The fact that you have to do everything yourself, shuffling between LTs for lectures and all that. Stress is inevitable. Also, it is difficult to consistently eat well

A mother's love is always enough for her child. Even if all the whole world seem to be against you but your mother is right behind you, then you don't have anything to worry about.. and by the way, it's almost impossible for the world to be against you when you have mother's blessings.

I couldn't agree more. When they are behind you, it is like an entire nation is behind you

If you ask me to define a mother, I will tell you she's a special gift we are blessed with by God. Sincerely, the kind of love shown by mothers really use to amaze me, they dislike seeing their children in a state they don't like. They rather go hungry rather than their children not eating satisfactorily.

Thank you dear. Mother's love are indeed incomparable. We can't hate the reasons of our pains as they are our Ultimate happiness. We might so strict for sometimes and overprotective, but it was only because we care and we do love our children's..

Thank you so much for this, Aimure. It's true that a mother's love is like a natural instinct, isn't it? I never knew I would love so much until I gave birth. And now my heart has tripled in size. I don't know what I would do when my kids go to college. One thing, I'm sure your mom misses you when you are away and she wants you to be safe and happy.

It will hurt watching them flee, but I am sure you'll accept that it is for the best and for their advancement too. Every mother wants that for their child
