A Mother’s Value in a New Mom’s Journey
I wrote a letter to my mother, who was the only one who helped me understand motherhood and gave the courage to stand in every situation. Here it is.
If you could only see yourself through my eyes, and feel the emotions for you through my heart, you would understand the strength of love that created the greatest miracle of my life, Vihaa. You both sum up my world!
They say mothers are the strongest. Yes, I felt that! My mother always made me strong. She encouraged (at times pushed) me to fulfil my responsibilities as a mother and also supported me if I trembled. Yes, it was the biggest boon. Postpartum depressions are really worst. But the person supporting a new mother is responsible for handling everything. Only a mother can do that well.
My mom has struggled for my daughter and me, whether it was day or night for 4 months. She forced me to smile and distract the baby when the baby was crying.
And now I am the strongest person standing up for my baby at every moment. She taught me values of life which I am trying to pass on to my daughter. Everyone should get such a person in their weak times. And, neither does she complain nor expects anything from me till now. Only a generous mother can do this; no one else can.
That’s the reason I don’t care if I have a man in my life or not. I strive hard to be a kind and generous mother to my daughter every day that, too, without expecting anything in return.
I came across this line on social media – “I wonder if you’ll ever understand just how much of me belongs to you”. It has such a deep meaning. I would say the same line to my mother and my daughter. It describes the three of us as a whole.
