Happy Mother's Day.
I can only imagine what it feels like to be a mother. To carry a child in me for 9 months, breast-feed, cook, feed, raise, giving birth, shower them, cleanup their pee & poo, guide, bear all their cries tantrums, educate, nursing during sickness and an endless list of errands. I will never know what my mother had to go through raising us 6 children.. and a son whom was terminally-sick and rebellious. No one can ever describe a mother's undivided love and care.
I had a short stint of single parenthood after my divorce and MasyaAllah, I now understand the sacrifices, commitment and dedication of a mother and I am sure my understanding of what mothers do, is really a tiny small fraction of the actual reality. I can speak with experience from that short stint, that it would really take a person to be called a mother. It is seriously not an easy responsibility and is very challenging.
That short stint made me appreciate my mother even more. I have one handsome and macho son (at the moment) and my mother have 6 stubborn, hard-headed, temperamental and emotional (but handsome and pretty) children. All with a mix of different characters and all are abit on the extreme (whether good or bad) but she loves her children equally and unconditionally. Her world, was only the children (and of course Dad).
So Ibu, Happy Mother's Day:
I know I have disappointed you,
I know I have broken your heart,
I know I have failed you so many times,
I know you have shred so much tears for me
and I know, at times I was not there for you..
... I am sorry & regretted for all the past mistakes.
Thank you for always giving me face;
Thank you for never turning your face away;
Thank you for never giving up on me;
Thank you for always & still being there for me;
Thank you for always giving me hope and all the aspiration in life;
I cherish all the upbringing moments and remembers all the celebrations we had on my every birthdays and treasures every seconds when you were by my bed while I was bedridden for months in hospital in London.
Thank you for the undivided love and care that you have given me. Thank you for always being there for me and Thank you for never giving up on me. My prayer and doa always for Ibu's good health and happiness. I love you.
Happy Mother's Day.
