PARADOX OF MOTHER'S LOVE

Unconditional Mothers Love - Happy Mother's Day

A young mother takes her six-year old child on an outing to the zoo. In the beginning, all is light-hearted joy as they walk hand in hand in the delightful evening sunlight. Then the little boy, suddenly slipping away from her, gets lost in the crowd. After half an hour of agonizing search, she finds him not fallen into the cage of a lion as she dreaded, but ecstatically watching the sea-lions: Her earlier feeling of relief turns to one of anger and she slaps him. His bliss is at once transformed into furious resentment; he bursts into tears.

Repentant, she buys the child an ice-cream cone and his resentment magically changes into pleasure. Once more they love each other. But then he wants another cone. She refuses, it would spoil his supper. He gets into fits of rage. Once more they are angry. After half a dozen or so such incidents and worn out by their extreme feelings of love and anger, they take the bus home. He is sleepy and his head truthfully rests on her shoulder. All..... again.
