Mothers in different life situations: a tribute to all mothers out there
Yesterday, we celebrate the special day of our mothers, sisters, aunties, female teachers, grandmothers, Godmothers, and anyone who’s experienced becoming a mother. I honestly consider single dads to be part of this special day celebration. A special mention to all single mothers out there, I wanted to thank all of you for all of your hardships for our sake. Today, this article will tackle mothers in different life situations, and how far can they sacrifice for the sake of their children and family.
Normally we only have 2 categories of mothers in our society namely; a) biological mother and, b.) Adoptive mother. Now, I’m pretty sure most of us are aware of the definition and have the knowledge to differentiate the two so, I will not discuss them one by one with you. However, as we all know, there are still kinds of motherhood that we know which doesn’t belong to our society’s main categories.
Full-time moms are those mothers that chose to focus on guiding and building up their families. She’s the one making all the household chores if the children are not yet old enough to help her. She spends most of her time guiding and raising their children molding them into respectful and loveable adults. She’s the one managing the expenses of the household and typically managed her husband’s income for the betterment of the family. To make it simpler, this is what we call traditional mothers.
Income provider moms (OFW’s mothers)
Unlike full-time moms who depend on their husband’s salaries or incomes, income provider moms are the ones who earn for the family. One best example of this type is our OFW who endure the pain of being away from their children for the sake of their future. They endure the pain of taking care of other people’s children than raising their own young. They endure every minute of loneliness and agony of being far away from their family holding one single hope, and that is to lift their lives from their poor statuses and provide for the needs of their loved ones. They even endure the pain of being maltreated by their employers’ because of that hope. Sadly, despite their sacrifices, some may experience rebellious acts from their children when they got home, the others may fly back to their homes and realized they were cheated on by their husbands. But even though there are many cases like this, many are still willing to try because that’s what a mother’s love can do.
Before anything else, I salute all single moms out there, especially my girlfriend, I love you baby.
So, as we all know, single moms are those mothers that raised and mold their children all by themselves. I’m speechless concerning their sacrifices and how they ever did such a tempestuous responsibility. Raising children and providing all they need from emotional aspects down to material things with the help of your partner is difficult enough to complete, what more if you are to make this all alone, but they did it anyway, the reason? Well, the only reason is love after all they say that “a mother’s love is the greatest love of all”.
Some may not consider this but I do so please don’t be mad lol!
Imagine raising and guiding orphans purely out of love. Although some may think that it is all just out of pity not love. I do respect the opinion of the others but as far as I know, they take care of the orphans not just out of pity but because they love them. Imagine a child without parents coming to an orphanage and meeting a nun who’s because of her passion has not able to have a child and because of the feeling of lacking in something she treated the child as her own just like what she did with the others. Would you consider that a pity? I guess not.
“My child” that’s the line of our teachers when they are calling our attention outside the class. Whether you agree or not we spend most of our time with them than our parents. Just like the OFW, they work to support their family and had to take care of other children 8 hours a day except on weekends. Others can say that it was all because of their profession but can’t you see the fact if they have any choice why would some teachers choose to work in the most rural areas whereas they live in urbanized cities? Why would a teacher cross a dangerous river carrying books and other educational materials when they can easily ask to transfer them to a most convenient school? Why would they climb a steep and slippery mountain just to reach a school on top of it if they can ask to transfer them to a school near them? The answer is love.
It may sound weird but I just want to acknowledge all single dads, I know the reason why right?
As the name suggests since they are single dads they use to do what the usual mother would do right? So, I concluded that we should also greet them when this special day comes.
That’s it for the classification of mothers I have, although I did not cover all of them because of their simplicity still the fact that they are all mothers then it’s enough reason to greet them a happy mother’s day. I hope for a better life, wealth, and future for all of us!
