There were thunderbolts of pain striking every muscle of her body. She couldn’t even budge. Just then, a lady in light, stern blue entered her room, and rested a lifeless little doll beside her. Just as she felt a warm breath on her arm, a feeling of calmness swept over her. The pain magically disappeared. She slowly pulled her heavy limbs upwards and tried to sit up. It was awfully difficult. But she managed doing it anyway. Slowly and carefully, she lifted up the li’l doll in her arms. It felt like an act of uttermost responsibility.A little angel sleeping in her arms..what could be a better blessing for her! As she moved her forefinger through the baby’s little fingers.. the li’l tigthened her grip. As if she recognized her for ages, as if she knew she was her mother! The li’l princess slept peacefully, while the queen hugged and kissed her lovingly.
Love and selflessness, joy and yet pain, peace and yet anxiety, satisfaction and yet longingness…tears and yet smiles…there was too much in that one moment! Too many mixed emotions .. yet only one beautiful name..MOTHERHOOD.
