This story is going to show you the importance of time. Mothers give their best for their children and often sacrifice a lot.
Many tired mothers want a break from all the problems that everyday life brings. On the other hand, they want their children to be unaffected. A mother that was taking her child to school was thinking about the same thing.
She thought how she gave everything for her child, even adjusting her life to her child’s needs. She also has a younger child who doesn’t stop crying during the night, which affects her by cause her to not sleep well. But something is giving her strength. Here is the letter she shared with the world.
The letter is called “the last time” and is dedicated to all mothers who sacrifice a lot for their children. Her feelings are best described with her words and they will take you through the world of motherhood and show why it is worth your effort.
She writes: “The first time you hug your child, you will not be the same person. Maybe you want to be that old you when you had the freedom and free time, when you didn’t know what fatigue is and when every day was the same”
“Now that’s changed. Now you are replacing the kid’s diapers and hear it crying. Complaints and quarrels. This may seem like an endless circle of repetition. But don’t forget …”
“… there is last time for everything. The day will come when you will feed your baby for the last time. Sleeping in your lap after a long day. And the last time you’ll hug them while they are sleeping. The last time you’ll wash their hair, hold their arm on the street.”
“And then they will never again need the same from you. No more waking up at night and hugging. You’ll sing songs and play with them, then you won’t do that again, because it will be the last time”
“When you take them to school, you’ll kiss them goodbye, and the next day they will not ask you to go with them. You will read them a bedtime story, clean their dirty face. They will jump into your arms for the last time”
“The fact is that you don’t know when it will happen for the last time, until that time comes. Even then, you will need time to understand. So, while you are living in these moments, remember that they are very limited and will not last forever. And when they stop happening, you’ll want to experience them again.”
