SPH # 26: Mother


my Mom and I


This is not going to be a different take on the theme ... this time, I am giving honor once again to the person who has made me who I am today.

Mommy,
We have not been seeing eye to eye on a lot of things since the Chinese New Year came in. There are days when we seem to be doing okay and days when we could hardly stand the sight of each other. We have said hurtful words we can never take back and have damaged what we had maybe to a point when we will no longer be able to go back to what we were before.

I am able to accept that now. Still ...I wish to thank you for the following things:

  1. teaching me strength when facing adversaries ... in the past, you have always told me that I can recover from any downfall I may go through (suicide attempts, peer pressure, depression, getting beaten up, and the like) and I have because you were always there for me ... now that you have let go as you said, I need to gather my strength from my son and myself ... thank you for teaching me that I can ...

  2. teaching me that money is important but it is not the end all and be all of things


  3. that it is okay to say sorry and let go of pride


  4. that I am worthy of being loved ... and that what I think of myself at the end of the day is what matters ...

It's funny how life works My. I learned to really value all these lessons when it was you I was learning it from ... when you became my adversary ... but at least I learned it. So thank you still. And though we may not see eye to eye anymore ... know that I will always love you. No matter what.

Happy Mothers Day.
