Default A mother's love

Two Muslim mothers are having lunch and the conversation soon turns to their children. Not long after, the older of the two pulls out her bag and begins flipping through family photos and reminiscing.

1st mother: "This is my oldest son, Mohamed. He would have been 24 now."
2nd mother: "I remember him as a baby, he was so cute!"
1st mother: "Yes, but he's a martyr now."
2nd mother: "Oh my, that's so sad, my dear."
1st mother: "And this is my second son, Abdul. He would be 21 now."
2nd mother: "Oh I remember him, he had such curly hair when he was born."
1st mother: (sighs) "Yes, but he is also a martyr."
2nd mother: "Oh gracious me!"
1st mother: "And this is my third son... my beautiful Ahmed! He would have been 18 this year."
2nd mother: "Yes, I remember when he first started school, very smart!"
1st mother: "He's also a martyr."

Soon after, it becomes too much for the 1st mother emotionally & she begins to sob, her eyes filled with tears. After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photos, gently lays her hand on the first mother's shoulder and says, "They blow up so fast, don't they?"
