in our lives and in our prayers.
Surely, beyond the stars, there's a special place for Mothers.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
“Can I see my baby?” the happy new mother asked.
When the bundle was nestled in her arms and she moved the fold of cloth to look upon his tiny face, she gasped. The doctor turned quickly and looked out the tall hospital window. The baby had been born without ears.
Time proved that the baby’s hearing was perfect. It was only his appearance that was marred. When he rushed home from school one day and flung himself into his mother’s arms, she sighed, knowing that his life was to be a succession of heartbreaks. He blurted out the tragedy. “A boy, a big boy … called me a freak.”
He grew up, handsome for his misfortune. A favorite with his fellow students, he might have been class president, but for that. He developed a gift, a talent for literature and music. “But you might mingle with other young people,” his mother reproved him, but felt a kindness in her heart. The boy’s father had a session with the family physician. Could nothing be done? “I believe I could graft on a pair of outer ears, if they could be procured,” the doctor decided.
Whereupon the search began for a person who would make such a sacrifice for a young man. Two years went by. Then, “You are going to the hospital, Son. Mother and I have someone who will donate the ears you need. But it’s a secret,” said the father. The operation was a brilliant success, and a new person emerged. His talents blossomed into genius, and school and college became a series of triumphs.
Later he married and entered the diplomatic service. “But I must know!” He urged his father, “Who gave so much for me? I could never do enough for him.” “I do not believe you could,” said the father, “but the agreement was that you are not to know … not yet.” The years kept their profound secret, but the day did come … one of the darkest days that a son must endure. He stood with his father over his mother’s casket. Slowly, tenderly, the father stretched forth a hand and raised the thick, reddish-brown hair to reveal that the mother had no outer ears. “Mother said she was glad she never let her hair be cut,” he whispered gently, “and nobody ever thought Mother less beautiful, did they?”
Real beauty lies not in the physical appearance, but in the heart. Real treasure lies not in what that can be seen, but what that cannot be seen. Real love lies not in what is done and known, but in what that is done but not know.
Mothers' love and care is unique and abundant. Only her love to the child
is unconditional, it is not restricted to Human only, you can see it in
birds, insects, mammals and other animals. A father can abandon a child in
times of crisis but the baby will cling to mother till the end, or *vice
*This is to salute all the Mothers of the world:*
A Mother's love is something that no one
can explain, it is made of deep devotion
and sacrifice and pain.
It is endless and unselfish and enduring
come what may for nothing can destroy it
or take that love away...
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking.
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking....
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns
And it grows with all the beauty of the
rarest & brightest gems..
it is far beyond defining
it defies all explanation
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation...
A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.
Wishing all super moms a very Happy Mother's Day.
It's very proud to be a mother.
