I don't normally blog during the weekends, so here's my early Happy Mother's Day wish to all the mumsies on the blog. Enjoy your day y'all and enjoy being a mother.
Mommy, please don't worry 'cause
I'm doing really well,
Even though I miss you on
This Happy Mother's Day!
Wishing you were with me 'cause
In that case I could tell
You all the things that happened to me
Throughout these years you were away
I love you even though you can't
Be with me anymore now
And I know you love me, too,
'Cause I'm your little child.
And I'm sure that you will come
To me someday, somehow,
And I will see you looked at me
And know that you have smiled.

Now a mother myself, I know how hard it must have been for my mom to leave the 5 of us behind. I think that on her deathbed she must have been very worried about us. When she left, we were only aged from 10 - 18. Now almost 30 years on, we are aged 39 - 47 with families of our own. So mom, you can rest in peace now, we all turned out allright. It is my dearest wish as a mum to be able to watch my children grow up, become independant of me and have their own lives like I do now. ( I think this is every dad's wish too).
I never enjoyed any Mother's Day (till I became a mom myself) since I was 10 years old 'cos it always reminded me sadly that I did not have a mom to love me unlike all the other kids at school who were so excitedly planning what to do for their mums on this day.
So on this day, I would like us all to pause for a moment and think of those little ones who do not have mothers to love them and be thankful for our children and our mums (for those of us whose mums and mums-in-law are still around instead of complaining about them). Whenever I hear of anyone complaining about their mum/mil whose helping to look after their grandchildren, I can't help but feel that they have forgotten to be thankful and they fail to realise how tiring it must be for an older person to look after very young children.
Happy Mothers Day!
