Strong and Soft

A mother of 3 kids isn’t afraid of anything. Except traffic, maybe. I wrote to another Mum of 3 today.

Yet, I remember, when I was a kid, I longed for my Mum to be vulnerable. To be softer, to break over something, sometime.

To ask for help.

    I probably learned more from my mother on the days she showed weakness than on those she demonstrated strength. For sure I loved her more on these days. As a mother myself now,I do try to remember this.

  3. Mother is built that way. I know how my mother faced difficulties after demise of my father. The traits she showed that time and the way she overcame all difficulties, taught me the way to LIVE. Long live everyone's MOTHER 🙂
