Mothers - Words of Wisdom

Written By: Chip Rudolph ~ 5/6/2024

To some, a mother is an angel, a guardian of our hearts, a shining light in the darkness. Not all mothers are wonderful. However, the idea of mothers remains a positive force. Much of our wisdom comes from those thoughts and lessons regarding motherhood.

“God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.” Rudyard Kipling

  • Mothers are responsible for teaching, guiding, defending, and protecting.
    • They watch over their children to ensure they follow the right path on their life’s journey.

A mother’s Love is Peace.

  • It need not be acquired. It need not be deserved.
    • Children will love a mother whether she is good or not.
      • She is who brought them into life.
      • She is who is always there.
    • The calm felt when held by a mother is just complete security to her child.

A child’s first teacher is Mom.

  • Each day, new light is shed on life.
    • A child learns facial expressions, voice tones, songs, letters, numbers, and so much more.
    • A mother spends hours enlightening a child about the world’s wonders.
    • Lessons abound in the kitchen, in the bathroom, in the bedroom, in the world.
    • Every new exposure is a surprise in life.

A man’s work is from sun to sun. A mother’s work is never done.

  • A mother’s job is also to teach the children all of the work for when they are on their own.
    • Cooking meals, doing the laundry, cleaning the house, shopping for clothes, and driving to school/activities are but a few of the myriads of chores a mother must do.
    • The work never ends.

  • Whatever the problem, injury, or outrage, much can be healed when brought to a mother.
    • She has the hugs, kisses, wisdom, and medicine to make it all better.

Mothers are important…

  • to our well-being, our development, our learning, and our character.
    • Each lesson learned shapes our future.
    • Mothers give us the tools to navigate the journey of life.

“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”Abraham Lincoln

Although many of our elders are no longer here to teach us, the adages, proverbs, and oral history live on to guide our life’s path.
