Watch a mother — how much she does for the child. But if you ask her, she will
say, “I have not been doing anything. In fact many more things were needed to be
done and I have not done them. I always feel that my child has not received as
much care as was needed.” Then go to the secretary of a club or an institute and
ask him. He will give you a long list of everything that he has been doing
there. Even things which he has not done will be included in the list!
He is a doer; a mother is a lover.
“It is ridiculous to use the expression “weak woman”, for woman is psychically
stronger than man. Not in herself, but through being more closely connected with
the Creative Power, which grants her the more delicate intuitive faculty.
And this is just what the woman tries to hide today; she exerts herself to
coarsen or suppress it altogether.”
This Mother’s Day weekend let us also honor the women who chose not to have
children, those who wanted but were unable to have children and those who are
trying everything possible and would give anything they have to become a mother.
And let us remember those mothers who have lost a child and live on with broken
hearts. We know the passion for mothering is often expressed in surprising,
unexpected and all kinds of beautiful and loving ways. And we know that
expression of love is just as important, just as powerful and just as essential
as any love that exists.
