Mother’s Day is tomorrow, and that means it’s time to show our love and appreciation for that brave young woman who has brought us to life.
And getting to eat cake. I am not guilty. Really.
Anyway, are letters too outdated now? I mean, we have electrical devices which are available for us to use now with social media platforms such as Whatsapp, Facebook or Snapchat to chat and connect with people around you. But nothing is more sincere than a heartfelt letter (be it handwritten or typewritten)!
Hence, I would like to dedicate this letter and this post to my mom.
Mom, this is for you:
I don’t always share my inner thoughts and feelings with you. But today, I would like to take this chance to show them to you with my most innermost sincere words on this post dedicated to you.
I still remember the times where I would bring home cards I made during primary school art lessons and gift them to you, with all the sweet phrases such as “I love you mummy” and “You’re the best mom in the world” every time mother’s day is around the corner. However, as I grow older, I don’t express my love and appreciation towards you that much anymore.
I couldn’t even remember when was Mother’s Day, and I don’t try so hard to figure them out and do something special for you. But this year, I thought that I needed to change and stop taking you for granted.
I am sorry for always causing troubles for you and the family, being disobedient and stubborn many times to the point you’ll just give up trying and give me that look of disappointment. These are what I show on the outside, but on the inside, I feel so bad and want to apologize but I don’t.. because you’re so used to seeing me as a loud and troublesome daughter.
There are times where you’ll have little arguments with me because we pretty much have “mirror personalities”, but there are also times where the argument goes so bad I’ll raise my voice to you and those times break my heart. I would like to take this opportunity to say.. I’m sorry mummy.
I guess this year has been one of the worst years that I caused for you and I’m truly sorry for that.. but still, thank you for supporting my dreams and decisions that no other parent will ever do it so willingly at this point in a child’s life. I am forever grateful for you and the sacrifices you’ve made.
I promise you that I’ll do my best to make you proud and make up for that sacrifice you made for me. I’ll work ultra hard and show you that this risk is worth it. Please continue to support me throughout this journey alongside the other family members and I will not let you down.
Thinking of the bright side, we have a bond that I don’t think anyone would ever understand. When we have little arguments, we aren’t actually fighting, I feel that we are almost just communicating in a way that only we understand that many people often tend to misunderstand as an argument. But it is funny how we can just laugh it all while still insulting each other like best friends.
I can’t deny that I still rely on you a lot as a daughter because, no matter what problem I have, from school stress to personal emotional problems, you’re always the one standing by my side to help me solve them alongside papa and everyone else. You are definitely the family’s superwoman!
I’m also sorry that I always hurt you with my words and actions because of the way I show it.. I’ll try to be more obedient and make you happy! I’m forever your cute little daughter hehe!
Words can never express just how much I appreciate you and am blessed to have you as my mom. I will never trade you for anyone else and I’ll try to show more love to you in real life. This might be a common phrase but I still want to mention because it’s 100% true! – You’re the best mummy in the whole wide world!
Mother’s Day is tomorrow and I would like to tell you: Happy Mother’s Day and I love you mummy!
What do you want to say to your mom?
As society progresses, we can’t deny that life has sometimes made us occupied with so many things that it started to drive us apart with our loved ones (especially our families). We tend to only focus on things that are important to us and we’ll forget to take some time off to spend them with the people who have been there for you since a long time ago.
This might not be true for every single one of you out there, but I personally face this problem in terms of commitment and priorities. Initially, I didn’t even know Mother’s Day was coming until I watched the television showing advertisements of it!
So, take this time to think about what your mom (or any other female wonder women in your life) has done and is still doing for you. Thank her and let her know that she’s appreciated, loved and cared for this Mother’s Day.
What would you say to her?
