A Mother’s Day Tribute

“But there’s a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begin.”

-Mitch Albom


This Mother’s day, let’s celebrate and salute the first woman in our lives. The gift of a mother who truly loves us no matter what.

I read about and many says, there will always be one person who will love you unconditionally, this fits perfectly to our moms. Because despite everything, Mothers are the one who inspire and first to show us infinite love.

I grew up distant with my mother. I can say I was rebel child then, I don’t like being scolded or nagged. But hell breaks loose, most mother’s do just that. I guess it’s a process everyone has to endure, to prepare you for more scolding when you get out to the real world. True enough.

We disagree a lot,  but we’ll fight for the same battle. When I get bullied, she stood up for me. When I was heartbroken, she he was there not saying anything but feeling my pain. She’s a stage mother too, I discovered. Sharing my joys and sorrows in every turning point of my life. My family kept me on the ground. I always look back at to where we first started, the little home where we lived, the toilet shared with the community, the complexity with our simple life, how little food we have on our table, how I witness the struggle to keep up with living. I grew up decent in a tough life though. Thanks to my family where I learn to value what I have now. I specially look up to my Mother for her devotion and love to my father. I hope in the process of having a family of my own I’ll have the courage and true heartedness to love like her.

And for men, you should find your mother valuable to actually decipher your lady’s mood. Because you know, we somehow think alike.

To my mama, thank you for inspiring us. You are always loved.Happy Mother’s Day!

And to all the ultimate hardworking and multi-tasking moms out there, have a special one! You deserve it.

P.S. Ma, you’re still the best cook for me. I miss your home cook food, perhaps you are to blame for my penchant on fatty and salty food. :]

Your only beautiful daughter, (:
