So sometime back, I share about my envies for great Father and Daughter relationships and how I love that my hubby loves our daughter so much. I wish I had a better one but I am contented just to be close to my mom.
My mom used to be a stay home mom who brought us all up, almost single-handedly. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, she had to return to work when I was in my teens.
I remembered when I was younger how I would give my mom daily good night kisses, how I enjoyed having her sleeping with me and how much I missed her on the few occasions she had to go overseas without me. Of course, I knew my mom love me just as much or even more. I truly understand how deep, vast and unconditional a mom’s love can be when I became one myself.
Though there are times when I do get tired out by mommy’s duties and driven crazy by my really active baby, but my love for her never cease. Or occasionally, when I get really mad and lose my anger, I will tell my baby: “but mommy still loves you.” I really do.
Sometimes I wonder, will my daughter stays as attached and reliant on me as she is now? How am I going to deal with the heartbreak when she no longer wants to cuddle or kisses me anymore?
As I ponder on that, I realized that my mom had dealt with this heartbreak, times 4. (I have three more siblings.)
Now when I am all grown up and had moved out, I yearn for my own independence and freedom. I no longer need kisses and cuddles from my mom. Neither do I kiss and cuddle her. It just feels weird to do so now. And too often, I take my mom’s care and concern for granted. But I still love her. As children, we take too much but give too little.
In my mom’s eyes, I am (still) her baby. A mommy will always yearn to be needed and loved by her own children.
So have you remembered to show love to your mommy or perhaps, daddy too?
Busy is a much overrated word. There are things we can do to just show how much we care and love our parents. Simple tasks like spending time to communicate with them and most importantly, listening to them patiently and attentively is the best we can do.

Time and tide waits for no man. Before it’s too late, please start to love and appreciate our dearest love ones much more.
