I am at an age where you can start seeing many people getting married and some have already have their own babies. And when you have many friends who constantly update about their babies online as if they are the only ones who have babies, you can see how excited some people are when they can finally have an offspring of their own, especially if it is their first. And seeing how they had to go through that mixed bag of emotions, happiness, excitement, and pain, we can definitely understand that having a baby is not as smooth sailing as some people might thought it would look like. It is times like this that we start to understand the sacrifices that every parents have to do in raising their children, especially the mothers who have to carry you around for 9 months.
Maybe now what we can do is that whenever it is your birthday, instead of waiting for people to wish us, we can also thank our mothers who have sacrificed so much. At least, once a year, thank them for enduring the pain in getting you into this world. For all mothers and mothers to be, thank you.
