A Mother 's Letter To The World


Mona 19
by Mona 19

My Son starts School today.It's going to be Strange and New to him for a while.And I wish you would sort of treat him Gently.

You see,Up to now, he's been King of the roost.He's been boss of the back yard.I have always been around to repair his wounds, and to soothe his feelings.

But now--things are going be different.

This morning,he 's going to walk down the front steps, wave his hand and start on his great adventure that will probably include wars, tragedy and sorrow.

To live his life in the world he has to live in will require Faith,and Love, and courage.

So, World,I wish you would sort of take him by his young hand and teach him the things he will have to know.Teach him--but Gently,if you can.

Teach him that for every scoundrel there is a Hero;that for Every crooked politician there is a Dedicated Leaders; that for every enemy there is a Friend.Teach him the wonders of the Books.

Give him queit time to ponder the eternal mystery of Birds in the sky, bees in the sun, and flowers on the green hill.Teach him it is far more honorable to fail than cheat.

Teach him to have faith in his own ideas, even if every one else tells him they are wrong.Teach him to sell his brawn and brains to the highest bidder, but never to put a price on his Heart and Soul.

Teach him to close his ears to a howling mob...and stand and fight if he thinks he is right.

Teach him gently,World,but don't coddle him,beacuse only test of fire makes fine steel.

This is a Big Order,World,But see what you can do.

When You Thought...

by Mona 19 on

...I Wasn't Looking...

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator, and I wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you feed a stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make my favorite cake for mea nd I learned that the little things can be the special things in life.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I heard you say a prayer, and I knew there is a God I could always talk to and I learned to trust Him.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick, and I learned that we all have to help take care of each other.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give your time and money to help people who had nothing, and I learned that those who have something should give to those who don't.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I felt you kiss me goodnight and I felt safe and loved.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw tears come from your eyes and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it's all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn't looking, I learned most of life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up.e and I learned that the little things can be the special things in life.When you thought I wasn't looking, I looked at you and wanted to say, "Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn't looking."

Some thing to Cheer you up :)

Good night, Ladies

don't worry Moms

by IRANdokht on

although it's very emotional to see your child become an adult, the reality is that you're always going to be "mom" and the first person they come to when they need something! some things never change... :0)

just keep modifying (improving) your relationship with your child to suit their age and situation. let the relationship become of two adults, and grow into good friendship. Be there when they need to talk, give advice without preaching and remember they still love to hug you when nobody is watching.

trust this mom ;-)


Mona jan, I am glad you're enjoying those links, keep smiling my dear



Empty Nest.........

by Nadias on

My son is a year away from university now. It seems like only yesterday it was his first day of school.

Time truly does fly by.

I pray and hope that things will go well for him so far away from home. Letting go of our children is part of being a parent. It is a very difficult part but necessary for our children to grow up.

I try to focus on my time with him now and not so much on his future absence. I will miss him so............

Mona Jan, thank you it was a very lovely poem.:o)

Yes, good luck Mona, if infact that is what you are saying.


so true

by IRANdokht on

Mona jan

the decision to bring another human being to this world comes with such great responsibility.

to see the helpless baby grow up and stand on his own, crawl, walk and then walk away is a highly emotional experience.

it breaks my heart to see so many of these precious lives taken untimely by elements of hate and greed.

Thanks for such beautiful words



Good luck

by Abarmard on

Good luck to you and your family. Do the best and forget about "Faith", rely on your own knowledge and wisdom.

Happy Spring
