By no means do I want to offend anyone’s religion, ” A mother is the name for god on the lips and hearts of all children.”(-William Makepeace Thackery) this hits home for me on a personal level and I watch other mothers and what this may mean to them.
From the start of a child’s life they do not know of religion or a “GOD” but they do know their mother. You see babies cannot really see when they are born so the first connection that they make is normally with their mothers. They know their mommy’s by smell, heartbeat, feel, sound, and skin to skin contact. They feed from their mother. As they grow into children most kids are most comfortable with their mom, this is why a lot of kids act unruly around their mothers because they are that comfortable to be their full selves.
The quote ” A mother is the name for god on the lips and hearts of all children.”(-William Makepeace Thackery) hits home for me because as my baby grows I realize she makes new connections and relationships with others, but the bond between me and her is thicker than blood. As a newborn and even in the womb I realized I am my child’s lifeline. She is now almost five months old and she looks to me for comfort. She calls to me for anything she needs.
Time will pass and all babies will grow to be independent from their mothers, but that will not change the instinct that mother was there from the beginning. That bond is a lifetime contract between mother and child that can never be broken.
