MOTHER’S HARD TASK
Kahlil Gibran, in The Prophet, expresses well the hard task of a mother to love completely and deeply and yet always with the task of letting go.
“You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
for they have their own thoughts.”
“You may house their bodies but not their souls,
for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit.”
“You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you,
for life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.”
“You are the books from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.”
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
