When maturity hits me, her opinion always matter to me. She is my mother. She is a huge part of my life, as I am to her. Today I wanted to celebrate her presence through writing here and appreciating her value to me. My mother is a very influencial person in my life. She is my wonder woman and my favorite hero. She is everything to me. Her happiness is my happiness and her loneliness makes my heart in pain.
Lately I had to have a plan that need her consent. Yes, at my age right now I still ask my parents consent whenever and wherever I go or whatever decisions I would be making. Her opinion always matters to me. Why?
Because she is my mother
In the fourth of the 10 commandments of the Lord God stated that "Honor thy father and mother". As a born and grown Christian, I had learned to honor my parents as I honor the Lord in heaven. If I honor the Father in heaven I should honor my parents here on earth. By that I should honor her words and her decision making. Listening to her whatever her opinion towards mine is how I show her that I honor her as my mother.
Because I respected her
I respected her and I don't want to make her less respected. As my mother we also had troubles and misunderstanding but never did I remember that I think of going away because of that or taking away my respect to her by talking in disrespectful manner. Yes, I talk back whenever she talks to me but I always makes sure that it is in the right tone and right way. I respected her by letting her know of my whereabouts even without her even asking. Whenever I asked her permission and she doesn't gave her consent, I don't pursue my plan because when I do I believe I am being disrespectful and I don't want that. Thus if she doesn't want it, even if it's painful to me, I don't insist my will.
Because I am her daughter
As her daughter I am oblige to follow her and listen to her, because as a mother she always look forward for the good of her children. As the sayings goes "mother knows best" and I believe to that. I know I still wouldn't feel that but I just know. Who's mother would like her daughter to be in danger ? No one right? Even hens protects their chick. So as mother, though they would sometimes became over protective but as a daughter I should understand how she feels and listen to her opinions because that is for my own good.
Because I am living under her roof
At my age and still living under the same roof with my mother, I should listen to her and I should value her opinion. It would be very awful to behave in a rude manner when in fact they provided me on everything. I know it's there responsibility but I know that to respect and listen to them is my responsibility as a daughter too.
Because I need her
Yes, I do need her. I can't imagi1ne my life without her. Needing her is like food in my life. When it is my mother, I believe "I can't live without you" statement is so true. I think even in my older years I would still need her, I always will. She is my everything in this world. My constant and my rock. I need someone to remind me of things, of my value, of how beautiful and smart I am even if it's not. Lol. One that always believe in me, that I can do all things. I need her. And I always pray to God to make her years longer.
Because I love her
This is the reason why I did the rest and always chose to do it. It's because I love her. Because I love her, I respected her, I need her, I honor her and I always listen to her. I love my mother and I don't want to cause her pain and worries. I don't want to have regrets in the future that I didn't love her the way she deserve to be love. I know I am not a perfect daughter, but I know also that I did my best to make her proud. I hope she is proud with me.
Her opinion always matters to me because she is my mother. Not just because I am living under her roof and need her but most importantly I respected her and love her.
Today is not a mother's day but I still want to celebrate my mother's existence. Because everyday is a mother's day. They dedicated their life to us thus they are worthy to be celebrated everyday. Whatever situation we had with our mother always remember that we can't enjoy life in this world without our mother and wherever you go in this world you cannot find another mother. Maybe by heart but the one that risk their life and nurture you within their womb for 9 months, you can't. We also had rough days with my mother and I regretted it, especially in my teenage years. My sister always told me to be patient with mom because I will understand her when I will become a mother. A mother is our greatest gift. We should value them and treasure them in our life.
I thank God for giving me my mother and I am grateful for giving me such a wonderful mother. I always pray to the Lord to give her long life and health. Life is full of uncertainties. We don't know what lies ahead and when will we still have our mother in our side. Thus, we celebrate it everyday in our life. Love, respect and care for them. Don't wait someday to repay their goodness. Do it everyday. Show them everyday of how you value and honor them, of how grateful you are to them. Kiss and tell. Show your love through actions and say your love through words.
God bless to all the mothers out there.
