There's a famous saying -- “A woman becomes a mother when she gets pregnant, a man becomes a father when he sees his baby.”
Even from the first signs of pregnancy, a woman begins to hope, dream, and worry about her future offspring, and what the future will hold for them.
Mothers never stop thinking about their children. They shower their children with kindness, show off their talents and achievements to anyone who will listen, and always have the best hopes and dreams for their kids.
My mother is a remarkable woman. She is the most positive person I know, always bringing sunshine to every room that she enters.
