The daily burdens of family life can eat our peace of mind as simply as they consume our vigor. How can we find calmness amid the chaos — and hold onto it for more than a short-lived moment? It is not easy. A stressed mom most of the times can lead to a unhappy mom. She sometimes might feel exhausted, irritated, or shattered from the daily grind of being busy. But it is hard to recognize this stress in Mom.
My Mom lost her parents quite early. Though she could not get parents love, her brothers bought her up well. But when we were born, she made sure she gave us all the love. My dad used to be out for many days due to his army commitments. I still remember days when some negative news used to come from dads posting areas and our mom use to hide her fear in front of us. She would just boost us up and make sure we were not getting worried.
She literally made sure all our insecurity is removed by getting us involved in positive thoughts and channeling our energy towards doing something positive. She used to interact with us daily , check how our day was, and advised us on most of the things. She was a master face reader. On seeing our face, she could easily find out how our mood was. The day we were upset she used to be upset also and put all her efforts/energy towards making us feel good.
Those were the days when we could not do anything when she was upset. But she used to hide it. Today we have grown up but she makes sure she calls me daily to enquire. By my voice modulation she is able to make out how my day went. It is strange sometimes that even when I try to hard something I cannot with my mom.
I remember a day when I was not well and my mom called me next day. To my surprise the call came from my dad. He told me that my mom was got a dream the previous night that I was not well so she was upset from morning. I tried to tell my dad that everything was fine. But within a fraction of moment, my mom took the phone from dad and she asked me to stay quite. She had called one of my friends from her phone and asked him to take from market some medicines and give to me at the earliest.
This was bizarre for me. At one end I was trying to hid my sufferings and the other end my mom had informed my friends. Such instances have happened multiple times. From that day I had decided I will not hide anything from her. I would be happy if my mom worries less about me and my siblings. But she does not stop.
The only thing I can do is to give her some relaxation by spending some quality time with her and keep her happy. This reduced her stress. In my absence I wish she can use Parachute Advansed Aromatherapy Oil massage to distress her. I hope all the moms can relax. A relaxed mind can help mothers carry their task well. We has a child can only keep moms happy by being good child I guess 🙂 what do you think?
