Respect for Mother
Published: 24 January 2013 By Sanyeri Afonja Olaniyi
*When you were born, your mother spent hours giving birth to you; you thanked
her by crying every night in the middle of her sleep.
*When you were 4; your mother bought you ice- cream; you thanked her by
dropping it all over the floor.
*When you were 6; your mother used to drive you to school; you thanked her by
closing the car door and not even looking back.
*When you were 10; your mother paid for music lessons; you thanked her for not
even bothering to practice.
*When you were 12; your mother paid for summer campt; you thanked her by not
even writing one single letter.
*When you were 13; your mother took you and your freinds to the movies; you
thanked her by asking her to sit on a different row.
*When you were 15; your mother was waiting for an important phone call; you
thanked her by being on the phone all day.
*When you were 17; your mother cried on your graduation day; you thanked her
by partying out with your freinds all night; and not even phoning her to tell her
that your okay.
*When you were 18; your mother carried all your bags and stuff to your college
campus; you thanked her by telling her to go away as you was embarrassed in
front of your friends.
*When you were 20; you got married and your mother cried of happiness on your
wedding; you thanked her by moving half way across the country & not bothering
to keep in touch.
*When you were 30; your mother was old and asked you to take care of her you
thanked her by telling her that shes annoying and old people should stop being
such a pressure on their children.
*Then suddenly one day; your mother quietly died; and everthing that you didn't
do came rushing back and hit you like a crash of thunder on your heart.
Cherish and respect your mother while you have the chance...
You will come to Cry when she is Gone.
Remember: we only have one mom.
