This tale is a powerful reminder of how valuable time is. Mothers make sacrifices for their children far too often without recognition. Even if they don’t talk about it often, women should prioritize taking care of themselves in addition to taking care of their children and other responsibilities.
While walking her son to school, the mother came to the realization that there are many things that mothers need to do for their children. Making their lunch, picking them up from school, making sure they brush their teeth before going to bed, and other responsibilities fall under this category. The mother was driven to share her realization with other mothers.
It’s easy for a mother to get caught up in the day-to-day tasks of taking care of her children and nurturing them. However, she set aside all household chores when she got home from work and composed this motivational letter in the hopes that it would be seen by as many other mothers as possible. She believes that by doing this, they would learn what life is all about.
This letter is meant to act as a gentle reminder that our children come first in need of our love and attention. Even if the responsibilities of everyday life often make it seem like there aren’t enough hours in the day, we must make an effort to bond with our kids and show them how much we care.
It’s a smart decision to go with the highly heated title “last time.” We won’t add more because it wouldn’t be required; instead, we’ll let you read her insightful observations.
“You’ll never be the same after holding your child in your arms for the first time. You may yearn for the days when you had complete control over your schedule, when every day was unique, and when you didn’t understand the true meaning of exhaustion. Everything has changed since then. Embrace the shift! Being a parent will bring with it a new degree of delight and fatigue.
Remember that everything has an end, even though changing your child’s diaper while listening to him cry may seem like an endless cycle. Your child’s last meal, last diaper change, and possibly last public handshake will all come to an end one day.
After that, you won’t need to help him in the same manner. He will no longer rouse you from your sleep in order to give you a hug. Even if it could be difficult to accept, keep in mind that these are just the beginning and that you will always need to help him—in different ways.
One day, he won’t want you to play games with him or sing to him. He’ll feel guilty if you kiss him farewell in front of his classmates. It will be you who chases after him when he runs away on his own and reads him bedtime stories. For now, though, cherish every moment while it lasts.
Maybe it won’t occur to you until it’s too late what you’re doing for the last time. It may take some time for you to fully comprehend what is going on. Savor the moment while you can since the time you spend taking care of your child won’t last forever. It will dawn on you that you would give anything to be back there again.
