Happy Mother's Day

Today, we celebrate “Mother’s Day” in Indonesia. I’ve just called my mother in my hometown to greet her. I always do this in every year. When I was a teenager back in my hometown, I always try to give something as a present for her. Though that day I can only afford a hairpin from my own savings, but she always accepts it hilariously. Oh, my mom. There’s nothing compares to your love in this world, even that stupid hairpin.

Then suddenly I realize that I am a mother also. This year I greet my mum for a happy mother’s day, while my little angel can’t greet me yet. I feel a bit weird about this, you know. Just a few years ago you were only a daughter of a mother. Now, you become a mother of a daughter yourself. What a circle of life, huh?

All these experiences have opened my eyes widely of my mother truthful love for me. I know it’s not easy to give a birth to a baby, because I already gave a birth to one of my own two years ago. I know it’s not easy to raise a child because I raise one of my own now. It’s not easy to build a perfect marriage, it’s not easy to give in your entire ego and personal desires and bound up into a little family that you need to take care of. There’s nothing easy to become a mother.

But you know, being a mother is a gift also. Your kids are gifts. Your happy family is a gift. The change to give birth to a tiny angel is also a gift. Having a good and care husband is a gift. Taking care of a family is also a gift. So, becoming a mother is a an extraordinary gift! Don’t you think?

Indeed, we should celebrate this mother's day everyday. But I think we need to choose a certain time to show that we really care about our mothers. A day that will make this so special. A day where we can greet all mothers and thank them for all their efforts and never ending love. All these greet would never compare to all the love of a mother. But I’m sure all the mothers in this world would be very happy to accept a hug, a kiss, or maybe a simple gift. Everybody love hugs, kiss and gifts, right?

So, for this occasion, I would love to share this “Happy Mother’s Day” award especially for all mothers.

Maybe some of you are not from Indonesia and don’t celebrate it today. But still, you are a mother. So, come and celebrate it with us also. I would love to give this award to my foreign friends: Kathy, Jenie, Erin, Khim, Ruby, Steph, and Rose. These are my friends and also mothers. If you a mother and we do not know each other yet, you still can grab this award too. It doesn’t matter if we are friends or not. A mother is always a friend to every body, right? So, do not hesitate. Grab one of them (or maybe all of them. Lol) and bring it home with you.

Happy Mother’s Day...
