Mothers are Precious, Fragile and Strong at the same time. There are some interesting dynamics each one of us have experienced in our relationships with our moms. Here’s one of them coming from Katrina, a member of Celebrate Woman Today community.
“My story is not a long one. My mother and I have had our ups and downs. But one thing I can always remember is her longing to just hold my hand.When I was little I loved it! Of course I’d hold your hand, Mommy! Then I hit my teen years, and it felt so awkward that I could not even fathom why she would try to hold my hand on the way to high school. Just so weird to me. But she never stopped trying, even as I would push her hand away.Years passed as I continued to refuse to hold her hand. Then I found out I was pregnant. I was so scared. She just held my hand and was there for me not having to say a word.Only then did I understand. This whole time, my entire life she had that mother’s love, a need, a longing to connect with me and protect me. A want to hold her baby’s hand.I hold my son’s hand as much as I can knowing one day he would most likely push mine away too. But I’ll never stop trying.”
Amazing stories about our Moms will continue throughout the day.
What was your awkward moment you’ve ever had with your mom that you felt either ashamed of or embarrassed of? It’s OK to acknowledge it and move on. Better yet, share it with your mother, if you haven’t yet. Give her all the LOVE she deserves in such simple ways like… holding hands.
