amma, mathair, ibu, moeder, ana, motina, or even just mother~
There’s so many ways to address your mother, but they all mean the same thing. A loving, caring woman in your life who’s taken care of you and loves you to the end of all the universes. For me, my mother means so much. I love her immensely, even during the times when she yells at me or scolds me because I know that everything she does is for my benefit.
So dear Amma, here’s something for you:
You’ve loved me since I was born
You endured my wails as a baby
You fed me though I resisted
You taught me to love stories
You told me to care for others
You held me when I cried
You cared for me when I was sick
You comforted me when I was blue
You scolded me when I was wrong
You introduced me to music and arts
You are my favorite woman in this world and the next.
So Amma, if you happen to read this:
Thank you. I love you.
And to all the amazing mothers out there:
Keep on shining and bringing happiness. We appreciate all the hard work you have put in to make us, the children, vibrant people. You try so hard no matter what and we are so, so, so proud that you love from the bottom of your hearts.
A quick shout-out to a mother who blogs:
Sophie @ This Outnumbered Mama. You take time out of your busy life to blog and help other mothers who are struggling. And, of course, you love your kids and spend personal time with each of them.
And to everyone else out there!
