Mothers are the building block of the house and while fathers are the head of the family, mothers can be rightly called the head of the household. A mother plays multiple roles and while she is a mother first and a wife equally as much, she is also the one who keeps the house together. She is a cook, the housekeeper, the gardener and so much more. A mother is not crucial because she dies so many things that include household duties, but because of the way she does it and the patience she ensures to carry while she is at it. She endures so much of patience and at the same time put in so many efforts, which of course, she never complains about.
Kids often shoo their parents away, and while the general convention is that the mothers are supposed to be the soft and calm one, it is the fathers who are strict and decide the rules of the house. Amidst all of these things, we can’t forget that mothers have a place in the household and they must, after all, be given more importance that we give them.
If you have been wondering why we are talking about this, well, it is because one must know the importance of mothers in a family, and here are some that you must know, irrespective of your age!
1. One wouldn’t last a day without their mothers
Our days include waking up to looking for her, and our day ends at ensuring that she is the one who is always around when we go home. ‘Where is a mom?’ is our the first question when we come home, and we need her around almost all the time, even when we don’t actually need her. Mothers are as important to our being as is air for our living.
2. She works and never complains
Everything is incessantly at work and while we never refrain from complaining at the slightest of discomfort, she, however, adjusts and she never cribs about something happening, we have now come to terms with the fact that she is just content and even when they shouldn’t be, they are happy with whatever happens and come their way.
3. She devotes her life for the family’s welfare
She makes so many compromises every single day and devotes her life to her in-laws, her husband, and her kids. Even mothers, who are working, have responsibilities, they have to take care of household chores and there are things that she has to do for a lifetime. She keeps on giving and almost never asks for anything in return and does all of this like it is not a very big deal.
4. Overdose of Responsibilities
Just as I mentioned in the introduction, mothers have multiple roles and with all that burden, they still just take it as it is, and they are always around treating everything as something she wants to do and never a mere duty that she adheres to. There is a never-ending list of things to be done, and she does all of this while she is tight-lipped, not uttering a word against all of those things that she does.
5. Forgiveness and Validation from them is what is enough
She forgives and she sacrifices so much, she is just always there, and with her, there is no right or wrong because she always understands, and never judges and you don’t need to have any layer when it comes to her. Forgiveness and sacrifice are things that come along with her, and all of it, effortlessly.
We all have to understand the importance of mothers in a family, and though we take her for granted, she must be given her due. As it goes, she works twenty-four hours, three sixty-five days a week, takes no leaves, and never complains. And so, we must understand, and apply things to practicality.
And that also brings me to a day celebrated for Mothers. Once in a year, the second Sunday of every May is celebrated as Happy Mother’s Day. This year, Mother’s Day will fall on May 12, and as a practice to understand the importance of Mothers in the family, we should treat her well.
Mother’s Day or not, they deserved to be made felt special every single day, for all the things that she does. Moms are treated next to God, and they deserve every bit of it for the things she does for us, without asking or complaining, or anything at all for that matter. Mothers are an integral part of the family, and they must be treated well, revered in the family as a crucial part, and all of this, not just in words, but also in action.
