They do not have X-ray visions; they cannot fly; they cannot cast a force field that shields you from your enemies; they cannot carry large boulders of rocks, but they are superheroes.
They do not have X-ray visions, but they can see through you, can tell whether something is wrong, whether you’re lying or telling the truth or whether you’re upset and mad. They know you very well that they can see through you way better than an X-ray vision could provide.
They cannot fly, but metaphorically, they aid you to, so that you’ll reach your dreams. Their happiness lies in yours. Their goal is to see you reach yours. Yes, they are, as the song puts it, the wind beneath your wings.
They cannot cast a force field that shields you from enemies, but they can protect you from your vulnerabilities. Their superpower is their unconditional love for you. When the rest of the world condemns you, when you’re at you’re limits, when you’re in danger, it’s always them who selflessly make a sacrifice to run first to your defense. Their love for you is stronger than any force field cast.
They cannot carry large boulders of rocks, but they have superhuman strength. Maybe, not physically, but emotionally. Going through that difficulty of rearing you in their bellies for nine months, bearing the sharpest pain of giving birth to you and facing that challenge of raising you up requires strength far greater than superman’s.
Our mothers: they might not be perfect like any other superheroes. Our mothers might not have X-ray visions, or the abilities to fly, cast force fields or carry large boulders of rocks, but they are still superheroes, and perhaps the most ultimate ones, far greater and stronger than the Justice League combined.
To all mothers out there, especially to mine, Happy Mother’s Day.
