What can I say about mother?
Honestly speaking, no matter how much I write here or say it verbally will ever be equivalent to what mine or even your mother has done for us.
They are beyond special, someone with whom we can always relate to, no matter what. Our mothers are the reason we are breathing in this world today. They sacrificed themselves, their own lives for the happiness and joys for their children and this is something no one else can do.
The world is celebrating Mother’s Day today, telling mothers all over the world how special they are and what they really meant for us.
But not everyone is lucky enough!
My younger brother lives in Dubai and this afternoon, he sent a big cake for our mom. It was a real nice of him and I’m sure he was missing mom so much. Mom was sleeping when that cake arrived, so Jia placed it in the fridge. I then wondered about the expressions of joy and love on mom’s face when she will gonna open up that box of cake. It would be nothing but pure love of a mother for her child.
Jia then returned back to room and after a while, I heard her sobbing. I got surprised by that as to why she was sobbing in the middle of a afternoon but then I realized the reason behind it.
Annee, Jia’s mother and my aunt, passed away last year and what my young brother just did for our mom must have made Jia very much sad. I started to feel heavy inside as I quietly listened to Jia’s sobbing and thought that this Mother’s Day celebration may bring joys and happiness to so many in the world, but it also brings up tears in many eyes.
I’m not pointing anyone here but do understand the emptiness of those who are missing their mothers. Or even those mothers whose children aren’t around anymore. The bound between a mother and a child is beyond explanation. And if one part is missing, life seems so much empty.
I will never be able to do justice with my limited vocabulary to explain how much special mother and child relationship is. This is something only to be felt, not explain.
