Motherhood-Way To Transformation

They describe "Motherhood" as the state of being a mother; to my mind it is everything woman folk do on a daily basis. The foundation of real motherhood is laid when a life cell begins to take a shape and form inside her womb. The resulting nine month long testing process which then culminates in an unbearable labor pains leads to a new life and a beginning of a bond that only grows and strengthens with every passing moment. Such is the power of this bond that even a fiercely career centric women turns into a doted mother. In short, motherhood completely transforms a woman in every way.

My mom too is one such example- a story of a complete transformation, a tom-boy girl with computer programming as the only life goal to becoming a complete mother. Her initial reluctance to marriage gave way to it after she met my papa. But then the real change happened only after the arrival of yours truly and she started doing things that was least expected of her. A woman who hated yellow Arhar daal (yellow lentils) all her life began to eat it as someone told her that it helps produce adequate feed; and then she would happily wash my toilet strained nappies completely unheard of someone who used to skip meals even after smelling something foul to even reaching up to a stage where she began considering cutting down on the number of days at work....the list is long and might sound ordinary to many but is significant from my mom’s perspective. On my part, I feel great to be part of the fraternity that all moms come from.

Now that reminds me of the song my papa had put on my blog. You can listen to it by pressing the play button on the player at the right side bottom of this page- “In My Daughter’s Eyes” by Martina McBride and here are the that para at the end.

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero
I am strong and wise and I know no fear
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me
I see who I wanna be
In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal
Darkness turns to light and the
world is at peace
This miracle God gave to me gives me
strength when I am weak
I find reason to believe
In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand
around my finger
Oh it puts a smile in my heart
Everything becomes a little clearer
I realize what life is all about

It's hanging' on when your heart
has had enough
It's giving more when you feel like giving up
I've seen the light
It's in my daughter’s eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future
A reflection of who I am and what will be
Though she'll grow and someday leave
Maybe raise a family
When I'm gone I hope you see how happy
she made me
For I'll be there
In my daughter's eyes

Is that how they feel? "Yes" is the answer I hear.
