“A mother’s love is something that no one can explain. It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain. It is endless and unselfish and enduring comes what may. For nothing can destroy it or take that love away.” – Helen Steiner Rice

It has been said that no love is greater than that of a mother’s. A mother sacrifices everything for her child. And trust me there is nothing more valuable and appreciable than a mother’s sacrifice.

From bites of her food and hours of her sleep to her personal dreams and sometimes her prominent career, a mother sacrifices it all.

I read this beautiful story based on a true incident. This brought tears to my eyes and still surely bring tears in yours too.

This is an excerpt I read that’s based on the sacrifice of a mother during the Japan Earthquake.

‘After the Earthquake had subsided, when the rescuers reached the ruins of a young woman’s house, they saw her dead body through the cracks. But her pose was somehow strange that she knelt on her knees like a person was worshiping; her body was leaning forward, and her two hands were supporting by an object. The collapsed house had crashed her back and her head.

With so many difficulties, the leader of the rescuer team put his hand through a narrow gap on the wall to reach the woman’s body. He was hoping that this woman could be still alive. However, the cold and stiff body told him that she had passed away for sure.

He and the rest of the team left this house and were going to search the next collapsed building. For some reason, the team leader was driven by a compelling force to go back to the ruined house of the dead woman. Again, he knelt down and used his had through the narrow cracks to search the little space under the dead body. Suddenly, he screamed with excitement, “A child! There is a child!”

The whole team worked together; carefully they removed the piles of ruined objects around the dead woman. There was a 3 months old little boy wrapped in a flowery blanket under his mother’s dead body. Obviously, the woman had made an ultimate sacrifice for saving her son. When her house was falling, she used her body to make a cover to protect her son. The little boy was still sleeping peacefully when the team leader picked him up.

The medical doctor came quickly to exam the little boy. After he opened the blanket, he saw a cell phone inside the blanket. There was a text message on the screen. It said,” If you can survive, you must remember that I love you.” This cell phone was passing around from one hand to another. Everybody that read the message wept. ” If you can survive, you must remember that I love you.” Such is the mother’s love for her child.’

No language can ever express the power and beauty and heroism of a mother’s love. Superman and Batman are overrated. For me, my mother is my only hero. The person who sacrificed everything for me. To the world, she may be just a woman or a mother, but to me, she’s my whole world.
