I am just a Mother…
I teach a child to read at school, I’m called a Teacher.
But if I teach my child to read Stories and tales at home, then I’m just a Mother.
If I plan lessons for a class, I’m called a Curriculum Coordinator. But if educate my child at home, then I’m just a mother.
If I sit and talk to children an hour each, a week, addressing their needs, I’m a Speech Therapist.
But if I engage and help my child with patience every minute of every day, instill proper values, then I’m just a mother.
If I look after a patient in the hospital,I’m called a Nurse.
But, if I nurse my child when they’re ill, awake all night, none able to replace my reassuring presence, then I’m just a Mother.
If I manage my boss’s office, I’m called a Secretary,
But, if I organise my children’s lives and my home, a place for everything and everything in its place, then I’m just a Mother.
If I prepare a meal in a restaurant, I’m called a Chef.
But, if I cook nutritious meals daily, made with love, remembered forever, then I’m just a Mother.
If I work late worrying about a deal for clients, how to make them as much money as I can, I’m a Career Woman.
But, if I stay up worrying and planning my children’s bright future, the bright future of our world, then I’m just a Mother.
If I sing on a stage, I’m an Artist.
If I sing a lullaby every night, then I’m just a Mother.
But we often tend to forget and realise that being a mother and bringing up our children with the values is the hardest profession of all.
May God bless all the mothers on this earth.
