LETTER TO MAMA

To the ONE who gave me life, I can give nothing but Love.

To the star, so full of light, the ONE sent from my Father above, thank you for the Kindness.

For everything you do, still doing and will still do. I appreciate it.

Thank you for the morals, the prayers and the disciplines.

Thank you for seeing me through the times of happiness and sadness. It is so usual what we share, Mama.

It took me years to know that you are supposed to be my Best friend, but I am glad it did not take forever for me to realize that. Nowadays, everything I do, you know.

They say, children are the reflection of their parents, with that, I try to show the world every beautiful quality of you in me. Not often enough do I tell you how much you mean to me and do I show you how your love has set me free but I do love you, Mama.

I also, know that a times I rebel and do things you are not proud of but despite all of it, you still shower me with so much love and affections.

You are the special Angel, God gave to me. I always find comfort, peace and renewal of faith in talking to you. Whether life is in a shambles, whether I lose or I win, You are always there to reassure me of a greater tomorrow. Like you always say to me “You can not die in that situation, because your heavenly father sees it all”.

To live forever, is what I always pray for you. A long life ever-lasting, reaping the fruit of your labor. I remember there were days, you will go hungry, so I and my siblings could eat. Rather than buy fancy cars, clothes etc, you prefer to give us all you have just to provide for us and to make sure we do not beg or compare ourselves with other kids at school.

There were times, you played the role of father, mother, lover, teacher, preacher and best friend. You are a refined combo of a mother.

One thing, I know for a sure, is that I and my siblings will not stop until we make you proud, until we get to the top, until people said our names along with the line “I want to be like her or him”. Your fruits (I and my siblings) are going to yield a bountiful forest of God’s blessings and you will not be able to contain it but you will bless the name of the Lord for it.

Heaven knows, I could not have asked for a better mother. Even If I had the opportunity of choosing a mom when God created me, I do not think I would have done it right.

You are so gracious in speech, cautions and courteous in words, so beautiful and blessed. You are a strong pillar of love; always there to correct and share constructive ideas so we do not go astray. I can go on and on writing the good stuffs about you…

I love you till the very end, I love you forever and a day more. You are a mother first, then a best friend second.

I LOVE YOU, MAMA!A mother's love
