When You Have A Mother

A precious treasure that will forever remain priceless is someone most of us tend to take for granted. The treasure being alluded to is your mother, who forges a unique bond with her baby that very few can understand and appreciate. Right through childhood and adulthood, a mother nurtures you and molds you - just like a potter molds his pots. You may have experienced the good times and the bad times in each stage of your life, but your mother is sure to be by your side, clasping your hand and taking you out of your troubles. Her love for you only amplifies exponentially and no matter what happens, she will never make you feel miserable. Her very presence is enough to elevate your sulking mood. Even though you may complain that your mom is irritating, nagging, exacting, annoying and judgmental who gets your goat and makes you fly off the handle, you can be certain of one thing. You are bound to sorely miss your mother especially when either you or she is away from home. It is only when you miss her most that you realize the significance of your mother and the warmth of her comforting presence. However, we often tend to take their presence and support for granted. We ought to remember that we owe a lot to moms, who have stood by us through thick and thin and never complained to others about us.

The second Sunday of every May is a special occasion calling for great celebrations to honor one's mother and shower her with love and affection. The tradition of celebrating mother's day was introduced by Anna Jarvis in the year 1912. It was the result of an active bout of campaigning that resulted in setting aside a single day in the year dedicated solely to mothers. Ever since then, mother's day is celebrated with great fervor all over the world. As there can be nothing as powerful as a mother's love, it has triggered many a poet's creative instincts who have penned their emotions in a simple yet profound way. 'When you have a mother' is one such poem that tells us how lucky are those who have a selfless mother who is ready to sacrifice to any extent for the sake of her children.

Here are the lyrics of a famous mother's day poem titled "When You Have A Mother" by Susan P Schutz.

When You Have A Mother
When you have a mother
who cares so much for you
that anything you want
becomes her desires
When you have a mother
who is so understanding that
no matter what is bothering you
she can make you smile
When you have a mother
who is so strong that
no matter what obstacles she faces
she is always confident in front of you
When you have a mother
who actively pursues her goals in life
but includes you in all her goals
you are very lucky indeed
Having a mother like this
makes it easy to grow up
into a loving, strong adult
Thank you for being this kind
of wonderful mother.
