A mother’s Love.

Happy Mother's Day a todas las madres de Spanglish Team!

By ClaudiaOlivos

A mother’s love is (most of the time) “unconditional… this is what makes it so very special. It is a love that will withstand transgressions of adolescence... plus whatever may come thereafter.

Hopefully everyone will be able to experience this kind of absolute unconditional love. It is the foundation of a healthy human being.

However, this is not always the case in real life- and it can prove to be difficult on Mother’s day to celebrate a relationship that has not been ideal.

From an early age, we know that when we do all the “right” things—when we are quiet, obedient, get good grades and otherwise “fit in” and are “good”—our parent will “love” us. However, when we misbehave or are “bad,” all those signs of “love” vanish. It is easy to learn from an early age that love is mostly conditional.

This is what makes a mother’s love so special; not many loves are as ideal as a mother’s love: and this is what we celebrate on Mother’s Day: the all consummate and unconditional love of a mother.

If you have not been blessed to experience that: know that you are worthy! You can hopefully have the opportunity to give this kind of love to your own children.

A mother's love is priceless. Our children should not have to earn our love. There is no love like a mother's love and there is no hurt like the hurt of a child, who is not loved unconditional by that very first and most important relationship: Mother.

In his book, Unconditional love, Dr. Powell writes that it is a permanent gift of the heart. He states: “this gift says simply: 'I want to share with you whatever I have that is good. Somewhere in the world there may be someone who is better for you or for me. That is not the point. The point is that I have chosen to give you my gift of love and you have chosen to love me. That is the only soil in which love can grow. We're going to make it together!”

As a mother, I know I love my son unconditionally. Forever. This unconditional love means that I cannot always predict my reaction or guarantee my strength, but I can guarantee that I am committed to his happiness, his growth. I will always accept him just as he is. I will always love him, deeply. My favorite book to read to him since he was a toddler has been “I love you Forever" I can still not read it without getting teary eyed. I mean every word of it!

Happy Dia de la Madre!
