Your Mother Is Always With You

MOTHERS-DAYA Mother’s Day story I found, writer unknown, especially if your Mom is but a memory:

The young mother set her foot on the path of life. “Is this the long way?” she asked. And the guide said “Yes and the way is hard. And you will be old before you reach the end of it. But the end will be better than the beginning.”

But the young mother was happy, and she would not believe that anything could be better than these years. So she played with her children, she fed them and bathed them, and taught them how to tie their shoes and ride a bike and reminded them to feed the dog and do their homework and brush their teeth. The sun shone on them and the young mother cried, “nothing will ever be lovelier than this.” Then the nights came, and the storms, and the path was sometimes dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother drew them close and covered them with her arms and the children said, “Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come.” And the morning came and there was a hill ahead and the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary. But at all times she said to the children “A little patience and we are there.” So the children climbed, and as they climbed they learned to weather storms. And with this she gave them the strength to face the world. The days went on and the mother grew old and bent, but her children were tall and strong and walked with courage. And when the way became rough for her, they lifted her, and gave her their strength, just as she had given them hers. One day they came to a hill, and beyond the hill they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide. And the mother said: “I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end is better than the beginning, for my children can walk with dignity and pride, with their heads held high and so can their children after them.” And the children said, “You will always walk with us, Mother, even when you have gone through the gates.” And they stood and watched her as she went on along, and the gates closed after her. And they said: “We cannot see her, but she is with us still. A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence.”

Your Mother is always with you. She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she’s the smell of certain foods you remember, Grandmother-Motherflowers you pick and perfume that she wore, she’s the cool hand on our brow when you’re not feeling well, she’s the breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of rainbow, she is Christmas morning. Your Mother lives inside your laughter. And she’s crystallized in every teardrop. A mother shows every emotion…happiness, sadness, fear, jealousy, love, anger, helplessness, excitement, joy and sorrow…and all while hoping and praying you will know the food feelings in life. She’s the place you came from, your first home, and she’s the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you. Not time, not space…not even death!
