There is nothing more valuable and adorable and appreciable than a mother’s sacrifice. It is simply superb. Whoever has received the mother’s love and care know the real value of her sacrifices. It differs for people. There are no words to explain. A mother sacrifices her life for her children, she accepts her children’s mistakes and she is the one who can understand children best. Mother sacrifices her food, time and happiness for children and seldom complains for the bad time she undergoes.
Here are 5 precious and priceless things a Mother sacrifices for her children:
1. She sacrifices her sleep.
Whether rocking us back to sleep as babies, or comforting us during a terrible thunderstorm, our moms didn’t get “time off,” even in the middle of the night.
Of course, knowing that they were there for us whenever we needed them kept us feeling safe and secure.
And while we may never repay our mothers for all the late nights they spent with us, we can surely give them a big “Thank you.”
2. She puts us FIRST.
Our mothers consistently put us first, making us the number one priority in their lives.
This is not to say that our moms didn’t have friends or social obligations. But taking care of us has always been more important than anything else.
“MOM, thanks for choosing me.”
3. A mother is there in sickness and in health.
These incredible women in our lives didn’t get to take a day off from motherhood, even when they weren’t feeling 100 percent.
A household with children is, by necessity, a household with germs. In spite of everyone’s best efforts to keep the family healthy, colds and illnesses inevitably went around.
4. She gives up her “ME time”.
As children, we might have been more than a little unpredictable, yelling in anger one minute and laughing gleefully the next.
But whatever our moods, we can be certain that we were often loud.
Our mothers understood that quiet time was rare and precious. But they were willing to give up on this quiet time to make sure we knew we were loved.
5. She sacrifices her food.
Our moms always knew that a full belly was a happy belly. This might have meant amazing dinners together at home, or even the occasional meal out.
And sometimes our moms would let us have the very last bite — even though they might still be hungry.
