WHY GOD MADE MOTHERS ! ( May 10 is Mother's Day )

By the time the Lord made mothers, he was into his sixth day of working overtime. An Angel appeared and said "Why are you spending so much time on this one"?

And the Lord answered and said, "Have you seen the spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have 200 movable parts, all replaceable, run on black coffee and leftovers, have a lap that can hold three children at one time and that disappears when she stands up, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart, and have six pairs of hands."
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/parenting/24960-why-god-made-mothers-may-10-a.html

The Angel was astounded at the requirements for this one. "Six pairs of hands! No Way!", said the Angel.
The Lord replied, "Oh, it's not the hands that are the problem. It's the three pairs of eyes that mothers must have!"
"And that's just on the standard model?" the Angel asked.

The Lord nodded in agreement, "Yep, one pair of eyes are to see through the closed door as she asks her children what they are doing even though she already knows. Another pair in the back of her head, are to see what she needs to know even though no one thinks she can. And the third pair are here in the front of her head. They are for looking at an errant child and saying that she understands and loves him or her without even saying a single word."


The Angel tried to stop the Lord. "This is too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish."
"But I can't!" The Lord protested, "I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she's sick AND can feed a family of six on a pound of hamburger and can get a nine year old to stand in the shower. "

The Angel moved closer and touched the woman, "But you have made her so soft, Lord."
"She is soft," the Lord agreed, "but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."
"Will she be able to think?", asked the Angel.

The Lord replied, "Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason, and negotiate."
The Angel then noticed something and reached out and touched the woman's cheek. "Oops, it looks like you have a leak with this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=24960

"That's not a leak." The Lord objected. "That's a tear!"
"What's the tear for?" the Angel asked.
The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her disappointment, her pain, her loneliness, her grief, and her pride."
The Angel was impressed. "You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything; for mothers are truly amazing!"

Re: Why God made mothers ! - May 10 is Mother's Day

In my opinion Mothers
God didn’t consult any one about His creation; no one could guide Him in this complex process; mothers are inseparable part of continuity of His creation, mothers are His medium to nourish the new ones to install in its creation. Through mother God teaches the world about care, compassion and sacrifice. In His creation, nothing is extra or less; however, there are some having very vital importance, mother is one of them.

Re: Why God made mothers ! - May 10 is Mother's Day

I'd fail with words for my mother.. Time and again she made me realize how wonderful Guru Sahib Ji is... i'd look up at her all awed when she'd say "These tears are precious, don't shed them... Only shed them for Satguru Ji!!! "

Re: Why God made mothers ! - May 10 is Mother's Day

I sent this to every secretary in the office. They are all the mothers of at least one chlld. They all work 40 hours a week at wages that are embarrassingly low wages just for the tuition benefit for their kids, or to send them to a good high school. Then they go home and keep house, cook, take care of elderly parents, calm angry husbands, keep family life organized and act as cab drivers for their children and their children's friends in all the spare time they have left.

Gyani ji

I am so sorry to hear that -- My mother is still alive at 89 years - and it is hard to imagine life without her.

You mother left her legacy in you -- wisdom, kindness, a clear head.

Pauri.The Reverend Lord is my mother, Reverend Lord my father and the Reverend Lord my Cherisher.Reverend God takes care of me and I am the child of God.Slowly and steadily, He feeds me and makes not sloth.He reminds me not of my demerits and hugs me to His bosom.He blesses me with, what I ask for with my mouth. God is my Peace-giving father.The Lord has blessed me with the capital of Divine knowledge and the wealth of His Name and make me worthy of this merchandise.He has make me a partner with the Guru and I have obtained all the comfort.The Lord, My Father, who is potent to do all the things, separates not from me ever.
