Cherish the .... NOW!

Yesterday at a family gathering to celebrate the school holidays, one of the little family members looked so sweet. She was all dressed up like a little fairy princess doll. I looked at my girl and thought to myself that she had overgrown that stage. Now why didn't I dress her up like a cute little fairy princess doll when she was at that cute stage. I was always complaining about how busy I was and how expensive some of those dresses were. So now, I've missed that stage and I can't turn back the clock! The just grow up so quickly!

Later at a park near my sister's house, I asked her how come she didn't go to the park more often since it was quite lovely and within walking distance to her house. She lamented that no one wanted to go with her. Her grown or almost grown sons had activities of their own now.

I thought about my own little family and how the kids still love to go to the mall and the park with us. I better cherish that now before they grow up and I miss this stage too.

Tears, Fears, Fights and Interruptions

I feel so tired today.... from having to deal with more tears, fears, fights and interruptions. Its tiring dealing with this on a daily basis.

Everyday, I have to become a coach to teach and quell fears and frustrations. Then I have to become referree to stop the fights (between siblings). I have to deal with tears of losing, fears and frustrations. At times I have to be the cheerleader, cheering them on. Then I become the spectator to applaud and give them encouragement and then the best part of it all is I have to deal with interruptions from the very same little people that I am trying to coach, be a referree to as well as the cheering spectator to.

Its so, so tiring I tell you. Its tiring to switch back and forth all day long in all these roles. I think I need some coaching myself and a little cheering on too.

Quote: A Mother is Born

First, I would like to thank reader Shandi for contributing the lovely quote below. I hope other readers will enjoy it too as I did. Thank you Shandi!

The moment a child is born,

the mother is also born.

She never existed before.

The woman existed,

but the mother, never.

A mother is something absolutely new.

I find this absolutely true. I became a mother the moment my child was born and I had to learn how to be a mother. I'm still learning! Its a lifelong process. I existed before I became a mother and now that I am a mother I constantly struggle between the woman in me and the mother in me.

I am sure all you mothers out there will agree with me that being a mother is one of the hardest roles ever! Lets continue to encourage and inspire each other in our roles as mother.

Inspiring Quotes for Mothers

I'm going to start a category on "Inspiring Quotes for Mothers" on this blog to share inspiring quotes, sites and poems for mothers. Some of the poems will be written by me, some are those that I come across. I will give full credit and link to those that I come across. If you would like to share your quote or poems, feel free to email me at and I'll post it in this category so that we can enjoy them together.

Sometimes being a mother is a "thankless" job and you feel really tired from the routine and the grind. Thats when you need a little bit of cheering up and some inspiration to feel fresh again. As mothers we give of ourselves without expecting anything in return. So to keep ourselves fresh, sometimes we should give ourselves a little inspiration. Reading inspiring words is one good way.

I'll start off with this quote that someone sent to me on my cellphone on Mother's Day. I really liked it so I did not erase that message since May! Now I can store it here on this blog for Mothers and erase it from my cellphone to make way for other messages. Lol!

A mom is GODS love in action

She looks with her heart and feels with her eyes

A mom is the bank where the children deposit all their worries and hurt

A mom is the cement that keeps her family together

and her love lasts a lifetime
