Mommy ambition!

Standard

There was a time when I needed her, to feed me, change my nappy, help me get a good nights sleep.  She helped me talk and walk and transition from soft food to hard food.  She taught me how to wash myself, dress myself, read and write.  I needed her.

Then came I time when I thought I didn’t need her, so I left her and decided to do everything alone, because she didn’t give me what I want! I thought she didn’t care, I thought she was selfish because she only wanted her happiness to equal mine.  So I walked away.

But then death knocked on her door.  I cried, she cried, she was humbled, I was humbled, she forgave and I forgot.  We returned to each other ready to embrace each other.  She celebrated with me my good times and wiped my tears through the bad.  She was mommy again and I was her daughter.

I came out of hospital with my baby.  The operation prevented me from doing much.  I was a mother but in desperate need of my own.  This time I watched helpless and unable to do much for myself.  I watched in admiration as she sped past me cooking, cleaning whilst nursing and meeting my every need.  She belittled my own efforts that I thought were worthy of a round of applause.

I want to be like her, leaving a warm feeling with everyone once they meet her.  Leave them feeling loved and valued by little tokens of love. No one left with an empty belly or an empty hand.  I love her, my mother , and now I want to be just like her.  Thats my ‘mommy ambition’.
