A mother can actually spend most of her day in the car driving her children to school, play dates, grocery shopping, and doctor's visits. When you are a mother, especially, when your children are small it is hard to get a minute of peace by herself while the children are awake.
Sometimes a mother wishes she could cut herself into several parts so she can devote herself to her children, spouse, home and job. Wow! Mothers have interesting lives. They need to be Psychologists to get their spouse, their children, and their pets to listen to them.
Mothers don't have time for other people's opinions and least of all temper tantrums. Mothers are peace makers all the time or else their home would explode in bedlam.
Mothers are the heart of the family. There children know who to go to when they are sick or hurt. It has to be mother nobody else can take her place in their hearts and lives.
It is usually the mother who wants her children in a church or temple. In this way they can learn about their religion and have a purpose in their lives when they get older.
Even when their children are grown with families of their own, they are still her children and need their mother's approval and friendship.
When the mother becomes the Grandmother than the fun starts. Grandmother wants to raise her grandchildren like she raised her own children but usually her own children will not allow it.
The main thing is this. Mothers or Grandmothers are loved by their children and grandchildren. That is what makes her smile and her heart happy.
