Rida’s Question- for me:
The bond between a daughter/son and mother is followed by an intense pure love that has no limits, no crude, and no materialism.
Share your #thoughts #poem #story #arts..anything you wish.
Children are born with a longing for a secure attachment and stability. A lot of the behaviour of a newborn serves the purpose of getting attention – and that is where bonding starts.
Crying motivates the parents to take action ; be it feeding, changing diapers or just holding. Smiling that cute baby smile will certainly result in receiving attention too.
I do believe it was this bond that kept me going and fighting after giving birth to my youngest and staying in hospital for weeks. There were complications, I had lost a lot of blood and a sepsis set in. In the blur of surgery, blood transfusions, throbbing pain, shivers, heavy medication- fighting the raging fever -that little Angel beside me (sleeping most of the time- and when awake just to eat and smile a sleepy smile just to doze off again ) gave me all the strength I needed. She also must have felt that her Mommy was in no position to carry a crying baby around .. so she decided to sleep and not make life more complicated.
And then there was the bond with my other kids. Hospital rules were : No kids under 14 were allowed to enter the ward. Every day friends and other people were congregating in my hospital room- but not my kids.Every day it was pulling harder on me: I have to get better. I need to get back. Every day they had me in tears when their thoughtful little notes, pictures and letters were all I could see from them. “Mom, we miss you!” “Please get better soon!” “I draw this for you” “Can’t wait to have you and the baby home”
They kept me fighting and getting better. I’ve never felt this bond so strong again as during this time but I know it still exists just the same .. or got just so much more stronger.. I don’t really want to find that out again.

“Mom, can you please pick me some of those raspberries?” It’s the sweet little voice of the now 3year-old angel.
“Sure, hun!” And no matter how the prickles sting and scratch my arms and legs that happy, grateful glow in the Angel’s eyes and the sweet voice saying : ” Thank you, Mommy” make it all worth it.
There’s also this pure love and special bond to be found in the animal world. I’ll include a few pictures from my animals.
