My Motherhood Means....

I have been a mother for more than two decades but a single mother for thirteen years. So what is motherhood to me? Speaking from my experiences, my motherhood is split into two parts, 9 years bringing up my kids with their father and the 13 years bringing them up alone till come-what-may.....

For the first nine years of motherhood, everything was so complete, so smooth... so beautiful...

Motherhood means sharing and loving our kids with joy and happiness, big problems become small problems with father around. Motherhood to me was contentment and bliss.....

ON the tenth year, when fatherhood left us, motherhood became sorrowful and teary..... shattered and shocked but not crushed. Single motherhood needs strength and more strength, to climb the steep hill ahead. Single Motherhood and childhood encourage each other to strive on.... Never Giving UP....

This is the fourteenth year, single motherhood is not unhappy anymore. With childhood and motherhood blending in strong together, nothing can set them apart....

Motherhood to me is a bonding, a bond of love with our kids, regardless of good times, bad times, happy, sorrow.... MOTHERHOOD WILL CONQUERS ALL....


a tribute to all Mothers in conjunction of Mother's Day in this blog here...
