The role of the mother in the child's development
The mother loves and cares about us. She is like an angel without wings or like a tree where her kids can play and grow. She shows her children how to enjoy life in the little things, and she takes her children with the warmness and the endless love. Her heart is full of forgiveness and generosity. She has incredible wisdom and feels her children very good. Her smile is a gift for the happiness of the home and she fills the heart of her kids with her inner smile. I think that the word mother is the best word ever existed.
