Assalammualaikumhi! how are you?
mother's day is just around the corner and i believe everyday is a good day to show your mother that you love her. however, it's easier said than done.
how many times you said "i love you" to your mom? is it the same amount as you said to your bf/gf?
saying i love you, mom is not sissy or makes you a mommy's boy. you are your mommy's boy no matter how old you are :P try call her once a week or better, everyday even if the call only lasted for few minutes.
do you take time to help your mom doing house chores? and willing to sacrifice your time gossiping, social networking etc to help your mom? we often take for granted the role of our mother that we tend to forgets she's human too who need rest. maybe we can help her washing the dishes, do the laundry or mop the floor.
do you speak to your mother politely and do you obey her advice? Mom knows best as they only want the best for their children and if you disagree with her opinion, just tell her politely why you disagree and i'm sure she would understand , eventually. besides, it's your life and people around you can only guide you making sure you are in the right path. the choice of what kind of life you are going to live is your responsibility.
small acts like these, we often overlooked at. instead we focused on, Mother's Day to do something special to your mom like making breakfast to her, buy present etc. thus, it raise question to me that "do we only treat our mother nice on Mother's Day?" she spent the rest of her life taking care of her and we should spent more than 24 hours a year looking after her and make her happy.
love your mother everyday and tell her how special she is. Mother's Day is just a token to celebrate mothers around the world.
Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there.
i love you, Mama and Mak :)
