Mother's Day (Unconditional Love)
May 08, 2011
“Only when we give joyfully, without hesitation or thought of gain, can we truly know what love means.”
Mother’s Day is a day of celebration and appreciation for all the things our mothers have done for us. As children, they fed us, cleaned up after us, and took care of all our essential needs. Definitely, there is an entire laundry list (ha ha!) of things our mothers have done for us. Sometimes it may seem like a mother’s work goes completely unnoticed, however, Mother’s Day (or any day for that matter!) is a great day to express your appreciation for all of your mother’s hard work and love.
As newborns, our parents loved us even when we couldn’t verbally communicate that love back. They took care of us, and more importantly- showed us how to love.
Mother’s taught us how to love unconditionally- to love without expecting anything in return. Through my life, I have found that unconditional love is the most genuine kind of love. If you do nothing but love someone for being their-self, you will live a very happy life. Give- without expecting to be repaid.
My friend Keith told me, “Investments in other people are the best kind of investments to make.”
Love openly and bring happiness to others- expecting nothing in return, and you will find great joy in yourself and your life.
To all mothers- Your hard-work is never overlooked, and your lessons are never forgotten.
Happy Mothers Day!
