My baby, my sunshine, my strength

While most parents believe that in the initial years, they are a support to their babies, for me, it has been reverse. She has been my strength, my motivation to move ahead in life and my biggest positive encouragement.
I was a software engineer by profession and after giving birth to my little one, I took a break in my career and spent all the time with her…complete nine months without even missing her for a couple of hours. But then, gradually, I realised the need to restart my career for our future and for my own interest too. So, I started working again. I used to leave her home, in spite of having no support or encouragement from my family members.
But it was not easy. In fact, I believe it is the toughest job in the world for a woman to stay away from her baby (not to ignore the fact that it must be quite difficult for my little one too to stay for hours without me). In a day, there are innumerable times when I miss her a lot, when I miss her glances, her sounds her hugs and just being with here.
I feel like listening to her, speaking to her, but we don't have any means or support to bridge that gap and build the communication between me and my baby during my work hours... my heart and my mind are filled with my baby's thoughts. The feeling of being away from here is so overwhelming that sometimes, I end up in tears. But then again, I have to be strong and work on my career as well for both our futures
Now I understand the word unconditional love. This is the toughest time for my baby and me to be away from each other. But the amount of support and encouragement I get from my baby is immense. After spending long hours at work missing her and waiting to meet her, the moment she sees me, she jumps to hug me and cuddles me and pampers me. Her love for me makes me stronger day by day and it makes me feel like I am the happiest person in this world.
Honestly, this is all a mother needs, this the best encouragement a mother can get and which makes her feel stronger. After all what makes me feel stronger and happier is my baby… she is the best gift ever from God to me.

ya perfectly true ppl think a working mom doesnt care for his baby as a normal mom but it is not true a mom will always be a mom whether working or not only responsibilities increase but the love for the baby never decreases infact the love and the long to see him increases
