This Short Film Will Make You Feel Really Grateful To Your Mom

This Short Film Will Make You Feel Really Grateful To Your Mom

A mother sacrifices her own magic in order to ensure her family’s life is rich and beautiful. The guidance of your mother goes beyond what you can see. As you work diligently for play time, your mom prepares nutritious meals and drinks for you. The effort goes unseen by the eyes of a child, but the love is felt. She’s there to give you direction when you’ve gotten distracted. Your mother has a steadfast focus on ensuring you make progress that can be easily overlooked because she makes life easier for you. Even time with other family members is made more enjoyable because of the unseen efforts of your mom.

    Mom is the reason why playtime is possible

    You learn the right mix of play and work from your mother. You play around your clean house and your bedroom because of your mom and you clean up because of her too. Early on, you learn to clean up last night’s mess so that today can be more enjoyable. Even if the lesson doesn’t sink in right then, your subconscious mind absorbs it. She makes room for your imagination to take hold of the house and grow. You have no idea until you get older that your sense of entitlement to express yourself started its roots in your childhood. As an adult, your sense of self expression flows so freely in your style of dress, work, activities and more.

      The family is able to play and enjoy themselves because the mother ensures the stability of the household

      Your mother gives your household a special kind of stability. Mothers feel that everything in a home has its place and you likely recreate this in your own home as an adult. Just as she was there for you to help clean your messes as a child, she is by your side ready to help clean your adult messes too. A mother’s love is so strong and permeates the child so much that they may not be able to recognize it outside of themselves.

        She’s always thinking ahead for your sake

        You may have never thought about all of the inconvenient times you got sick. In the middle of the night, your mother was there fulfilling needs you didn’t know you had. There she was to expedite the process of getting you back to play time. Even when you can’t articulate the way you’re feeling, she recognizes the problem and works on healing you. A mother’s knack for being proactive is the reason why she has medicine for your cold and band-aids for your cuts.

          A mother’s selflessness allows the magic to touch every part of the household

          Mothers are magical. If that power were to be used only for herself with nothing left for the family, the household just isn’t the same. Meals just don’t have that motherly warmth. A mother could use her magic on selfishly beautifying herself. She knows the household would suffer from this. The family’s homemade meals would be fewer and further in between. Everything from the decorations on the walls to the clothes on the family’s backs are affected by the magic of a mother.

            A mother is truly more magical than imagined

            There is a certain specialness from your mother hanging a picture on the wall just so or lovingly placing decorations around the house. All of these items are in place because of a mother’s selflessness. She works on creating a beautiful, comfortable home that you may have thought just “came together” that way. She hangs your sometimes cryptic childhood artwork on the wall and decorates your belongings with the name she gave you. Every single day, you’re groomed and dressed in clean clothes by the love your mother is determined to give to you. A mother’s ultimate sacrifice is to eventually give up being a princess and give that magic to her child.
