This story demonstrates the value of time. Mothers’ sacrifices for their children are all too often forgotten.
Even though women rarely complain about such difficulties, preferring to enjoy being able to provide for their children in the best way possible, they would be prudent to consider their own needs at least periodically.
While putting her child off at school, this mother had an epiphany that she wanted to share with all other mothers. As she strolled with her son, the mother was thinking about all she needed to do for her kids today, such as cooking lunch, picking them up after school, making sure they washed their teeth before bed, and so on.
Her mind had already been accustomed to focusing entirely on the wants and well-being of the youngsters.
However, upon her return home, she put aside all domestic responsibilities. She wrote this poignant letter in the hopes that it would be read by as many other mothers as possible and help them grasp what is essential in life.
“Last time” is an emotional and well-chosen title. We will let you read her wise thoughts because extra words would be unnecessary.
“From the moment you first hold your child in your arms, you will never be the same.
Maybe you’ll miss the days when you had the freedom and time to do whatever you wanted, when every day was different, and you didn’t know what it was like to be truly exhausted. Since then, everything has changed.
As you change your child’s diaper, you may hear him weeping. As the debates and desires continue, it appears to be a never-ending circle. But keep in mind that everything has an ending. You will one day feed your child for the last time. When he finally drifts asleep in your arms after a long day.
And the last chance you’ll get to hug him while he sleeps. You’ll be the last person to shampoo his hair or hold his hand publicly. He won’t need you in the same manner again after that. He will no longer wake you up at night to cuddle with him.
You are currently singing to and playing with him, but this will soon end.
You kiss him goodbye as you drop him off at school, but maybe he’ll tell you to stop the next day. After reading him one more bedtime story, you’ll clean his face.
He’ll leap into your arms one last time.
You will not realize you are doing something for the last time until it is too late. Even so, you will need time to appreciate what is going on properly.
Enjoy whatever you do for your child because it won’t last forever.
When that period is over, you’ll realize you’d do anything to relive it.”
