The Foundation of Unconditional Love In a couple weeks, we celebrate a holiday devoted to the people who’ve been our superheroes, guides, champions, and role models: our mothers. They are the people who cared for us and made sacrifices so that we could grow up healthy and happy.You don’t have to give birth to be a mother, either. Mothers who’ve adopted a child or taken in a foster child are among those we celebrate this month. We’ve seen strong women and mothers make their mark throughout history. Harriet Tubman led the underground railroad, freeing hundreds of slaves and bringing hope to many more, before taking in orphans and the elderly after the war. Maria Von Trapp (of “Sound of Music” fame), became mother to the A Tribute to Our Superheroes
House, Michelle protected her children from the public eye and spearheaded a healthy eating campaign.
Often, the women we think of as our superheroes have to overcome unparalleled challenges. One mother explains,“I was jobless, a lone parent, and as poor as it is possible to be in modern Britain without being homeless ... By every usual standard, I was the biggest failure I knew.” She was working on a book, for which she’d received “loads” of rejection letters. Finally, in 1997, a publishing company picked it up.That book was “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone;” the mother and author was J.K. Rowling. Two of our Realtors, Cristina and Diane, are moms, and they’re exceptional ones at that. I’ve watched both these women nurture their kids with love and act as role models for them. As their kids got older, they displayed unconditional love toward them, despite the challenges of the teenage years. Part of parenting is being willing to go through potential challenges with your kids. By overcoming these challenges, they grow into better human beings. Cristina and Diane never waver in their commitment to do the right thing for their kids, even during conflict. I’ve watched Diane and her daughter grow closer, and they’re best friends now. She’s close with her son, as well, even though he lives out of state.That’s another aspect of parenting that can be difficult — letting go. Diane has had to accept that her son is setting out on his own now and starting his life on the East Coast. Acceptance and unconditional love are the basic ingredients of parenthood.
