Mother! What can I possibly say about her, that hasn’t been said before me thousands and thousands of times? My grandmother used to say that mother is the child’s golden mattress. It’s true, there is an unbreakable bond between a mother and a child that can be found in no other relationship a person makes in his/her entire life.

Is it the fact that the mother actually gives birth to her child? Or, perhaps that this child grows inside her for nine whole months? Or, maybe that she is the person on whom the child’s entire existence depends for the first five years of its life?

I would say all these are true, plus a very strong genetically driven instinct that makes us long for our mothers and vice versa.

I was watching the other day a TV series on television. It is a lost and found series on which people try to find lost relatives and the cast of the show help them find them. I don’t normally watch it, because I believe they try to exploit human pain and this is something I detest, but that day my son was watching it and so I occasionally watching it as well between cooking and ironing.

The story pretty much a usual one. A mother gave her child for adaption, as she was very young to look after it. The child, the moment he learned that he was adopted, started the search for his mother. There was not a sad story behind it. He lived in a very happy family and his adopted parents gave him all the love in the world, but still he wanted to find his natural mother and create some kind of a relationship. I, then, realized how strong a bond is between a mother and a child, stronger than any other relation anyone makes in a lifetime.

I dedicate this to all the mothers of this world. Judging from my personal experience, I can tell you that raising a child and raising it so as to be a good and useful person in the society is the most difficult task I have ever encountered in my entire life. Every single day I strive to teach him how to survive in this world. Through him I see my own faults and inefficiencies and try to correct them, so as to be a role model for him. I can tell you sometimes this is too difficult for me. But my child is there and I cannot do otherwise than to keep going. My reward is the fact that I watch him grow into a fine person and that makes me really proud.

I made these muffins to show my love and affection to my family and they were just the perfect little thing to accompany a filling and rewarding meal. The original recipe comes from Taste but I changed the heck out of it.
