This is a random photo that I took of my friend and her adorable little 2 year-old daughter. I took it in December last year, but it is only a few days ago that I was going through those photos and this one arrested me, literally. I just stared at it for like five minutes, totally engrossed in it. It generated so much warmth in my heart as I remembered just looking at them and witnessing that raw, natural love.
The photo of the two of them reminded me of the relationship I have with my mum. I’ve always been a ‘mummy’s girl’, and I do know that my mum somehow ‘spoilt’ me.
Not that I ever complained anyway. I’m blessed to have had a pretty good relationship with her ever since I was a little girl, one that has continued to get even better over the years.
I’m very grateful to still have my mum around to share with me nuggets of wisdom especially on motherhood, marriage and life. My mum is my strength, my friend, my teacher, my adviser, my intercessor, my rock, my role model. If you’re still blessed to have your mum around, tell her that you love her today. And don’t forget to tell it to your daughter too.
I may not have a little girl myself, but I will always be someone’s little girl… I love you mum.
