My Mother - My Inspiration

On the Occasion of Mother's Day, Senior Express (www.seniorexpress.in) published a very interesting article "My Mother - My Inspiration", where people across different generations (age range 25-80 years) shared their feelings and thoughts about their mother's importance in their life and development. Sharing a snippet from the published article along with a link for full article.



Mothers play a crucial role in the growth and development of their children. Right from changing our nappies to making us a self sufficient person, mothers have an essential role to play in our life. Behind every responsible, healthy and lively person there is a loving, caring and conscientious mother who not only brings a life to this world but also instills in that child feeling of empathy, care, love and respect. These teachings in turn influences the way of living and thinking throughout our life. No matter how old we grow our mother will always be an integral part of who we are and we can never thank them enough for their contribution in our growth.


Please feel free to comments on this article or share with us your mother's role in your life.
