Mother's Day - Parental Love

'Children are like wet cement, whatever falls on them makes an impression.' Mother, father, and the feeling of mutual love that exists between them is the first lesson of love and sharing that one learns. Parents paint the child as if it were a plain canvas, shape him as if out of clay and bring it to life...

There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
-Ella Wheeler Wilcox.

Life is not fair but what is most important we do not value. We do not value what we have, we know not the worth of parents as we take them for granted like any other child. The instant a daughter switches roles to being a mother herself she witnesses the selfless acts of many years ago, forgotten and buried somewhere. Life is about learning to appreciate the love of the most important people on our live in these fleeting moments.

In the prenatal, natal and postnatal stages, at lactating times, nursing and feeding times, when she taught you to walk and run and speak and express she never kept count of the numerous acts of love enacted by her or the amount of work done by her in your favor. That is what we call a selfless, unconditional series of an act of love... From beginning to end, morning, noon and night, the one solitary soul that prays for that lone child is the mother because her love is unconditional and unaffected by any arising circumstances.

Love is all about sharing and caring and who but a Mother would know that best. 'There are too many mediocre things in life; Love shouldn't be one of them'. Rightly stated by someone love is a divine feeling and parental love is pious in every sense of the word. The mother who tends to all our needs and the father who so affectionately fulfills all monetary and circumstantial, often illogical needs are a Godsend.

When talking of the father, there are many unsaid acts that we witness. Right from holding his finger and learning to walk, to run and chasing him and play sport, then driving, mechanics, math, the list is endless! He teaches the child responsibility and the daily chores at home make the child self-dependent. Fathers make the child self-reliant while the mother teaches one the practicality techniques. The father is the head of the family while in the mother lies the heart. In all the ups and downs in life, parents always stay. Time may pass us by, but what survives is the touch and the care of a Mother and Father.

A Mother and Father are God's greatest gift to mankind.
A genuine love exists in a parent's heart for his child, for those who claim it to be a myth, there may now be doubts regarding it for love needn't be taught. Who taught Romeo to love Juliet? Whenever a heart is hit by Cupid’s arrow the Homo Sapient is automatically changed to a Homo Sentient. One starts acting in a definite as though “predestined” pattern, which cannot really be influenced or controlled by “reason”. Parental love is such, without reason and any control. All it knows is how fond it is of its child, a part that has been segregated and is now like an external growth.
