Mother's  Day is celebrated worldwide. Just like many other celebrations, Mother's Day must have been made up to gather all your thank you(s) for the whole year. But even then, your mom won't get all gangster on you if you forget Mother's Day.

A mother will not get upset if you forget to thank her for the gazillions things she does for you because her wanting gratitude buttons were switched off permanently the day you were born. Instead she was given the ability to withstand and endure much more than what she could before she gave birth to you.

A mother is special because...

She will allow you to walk in on her while she is peeing.

She will chase away cockroaches and lizards although these insects can make her jump on a chair.

She will order and share food she knows you will like even if she had her heart set on spicy Nasi Lemak.

She will stay hungry just to watch you enjoy and fill your tiny tummy with the food she cooked for you. And after that, she will most probably help you finish up your food.

She will learn the lyrics to your favourite songS and sing it loudly wherever and whenever you ask of her.  

She will update herself with the current music bands and dance songs.

She will start living safe and healthy because she cannot bare the thought of you growing up without a mother.
She will head straight to children's department when out shopping.
She will forgo her adults only parties and spend the weekend watching cartoons or playing games with you.
She will most definitely put her personal style on hold and wear clothes covered in spit and vomit marks which will not bother her.

She will have one accessory on her and that would be hair scrunchies, on her hair and wrist.

She will spend hours on YouTube searching for new recipes and latest hairstyles for you.

She will stay awake at night sponging you when you have fever.

She will hug and sit on the toilet bowl with you when you have diarrhea.

She will change many bed linens when you are being potty trained.

She will let you cry and be angry with her but she will not fight your battles for you.

She will start a fruits and vegetable garden because she wants to feed you organic food.

She will learn to sew buttons and stitch your school badge because you keep ripping them off.

She is happy when you are happy and she is sad when you are sad.
She will be the first to get out of bed to  prepare a hearty breakfast for you to have and take along as you leave the house.
She won't mind it if you arrive home after dinner and would make hot parathas while you shower.
She always prays for you to be safe and happy.

I am so thrilled God gave me an opportunity to experience motherhood. I cannot express how lucky I am to be a mother and to have two mothers who will do anything for my family and I.

Happy Mother's Day.
