The Heart of a Mother





From the moment you are born you know the warmth of your mother's love; she gives you comfort, feeds you, wipes your tears.

She supports you as you take your first steps, say your first words and have your first temper tantrum.

On your first day of school she walks you to you classroom and leaves you, holding back tears until she is out of sight.

You become a teenager; learn to drive a car, go out with your friends, stay out past curfew. You tell her to stop being overprotective you when she warns you about drugs, drinking and driving and a world gone mad.

Then one day you get married and have a child of your own and in that exquisite moment; when you look at your baby's face for the first time, you think of her and all the love she felt for you fills your heart and you finally understand the heart of a mother.
