The Myths of Motherhood
Ladies, thank you for all you do; you are wonderful. God bless you this Mother’s Day of 2021. As the following humours, and wise, illustrations point out, there are a lot of “myths” associated with motherhood. Praise God; You are the women that empower us and build our families, churches, neighbourhoods and nation. You are the best!
Somebody said that a child is carried in its mother’s womb for nine months. Somebody does not know that a child is carried in its mother’s heart forever.
Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you’ve had a baby. Somebody doesn’t know that once you’re a mother, normal is history.
Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct. Somebody never took a three-year-old shopping.
Somebody said being a mother is boring. Somebody never rode in a car driven by a teenager with a driver’s permit.
Somebody said “good” mothers never raise their voices. Somebody never came out the back door just in time to see her child hit a golf ball through the neighbour’s kitchen window.
Somebody said you don’t need an education to be a mother. Somebody never helped a fourth grader with his math.
Somebody said you can’t love the fifth child as much as you love the first. Somebody doesn’t have five children.
Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing questions in the books. Somebody never had a child stuff beans up her nose.
Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery. Somebody never watched her “baby” get on the bus for the first day of kindergarten.
Somebody said a mother can stop worrying after her child gets married. Somebody doesn’t know that marriage adds a new son or daughter-in-law to a mother’s heartstrings.
Somebody said a mother’s job is done when her last child leaves home. Somebody never had grandchildren.
Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don’t need to tell her. Somebody isn’t a mother.
