A Mother's Beauty


    I looked up at her, curling her long, sandy blond hair in the bathroom mirror and breathed in the scent of the canned hairspray and felt so…..safe and happy.  I caught her glance in the mirror and said “Mommy, you’re so beautiful!”  She laughed and said “I love you.”  I miss her terribly.  Everything about her.  Her smell, her laugh, her very essence and the way I felt whole around her.  

    Every year as Mother’s Day approaches I feel a mix of emotion.  I have a longing, aching emptiness for my own mom, gone too young at 42 after taking her own life tragically.  But I also have a blessed and grateful feeling for being a mom myself.  There is so much to be said about being so special to two young human beings and I am forever thankful.  
    Motherhood is infinitely unique.  It is truly a bond that can never be replicated. For years I never thought I even wanted children but now I definitely can’t imagine life without them.  All the good times, rough times, sleepless nights, sicknesses, milestones, all blur together in years of happy memories. 
    “Mommy, you’re so beautiful. “ My own daughter will sometimes tell me in the most unlikely moments how beautiful she thinks I am , and it’s usually when I haven’t done my hair or makeup and I know that she is actually more likely observing my internal qualities, my beauty inside, and how safe and happy she feels around ME, and there’s no other feeling like that in the world. 
   Whatever emotion this Mother’s Day brings you, I pray that God blesses you and brings you comfort and a spirit of gratitude in this time.


I have very similar memories of my grandmother, watching her do her hair in the bathroom and using hairspray. So sorry for the loss of your mom, that must have been devastating.

Thank you for sharing your story… this was heartbreaking… I bet it’s so hard on Mother’s Day because of the loss of your mother, but I am glad you have your daughter to bring you joy :)

A MOTHER’S BEAUTY- what an wonderful title is this! I found the title of the article very interesting. There has been endless love and respect for mother in everyone’s heart. In the eyes of the child, his mother is the most beautiful woman in the world. It is a beautiful and honest feeling. We all love our mother very much and we should all do it. Many thanks to the author for writing such a beautiful article on Mom and motherhood. I am requesting the author to write more articles like this.

I have read the article a few times. Every time I read it, I remembered my mother. My mother died 21 years ago. My feelings on Mother’s Day are different from others. The day brings back memories of old days. The mother’s love for her child is genuine. I think not only on Mother’s Day but throughout the year you have to love your mother and keep in touch with her. Finally thanks to the author for the article.
