Assamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
A lot people think I should update more often but you see, the things I share on my blog are usually quite personal and it takes time for me to gather my thoughts and be able to finally type it out. I'm trying to be more consistent but I don't want my blog to just be something meaningless that you read to pass your time, I want you to gain something when you're done reading my posts. So I hope you understand when I take time to update this blog of mine.
Today's post is: PARENTS. How many of us utter the words "I love you" to our parents without hoping to ask for something after ? How many of us simply thank them from time to time to remind them of our gratitude ? How many of us pray for our parents well-being everyday in this world and the Hereafter ? It's very easy for us to forget the sacrifices our parents have made to raise us to be a good person or give us the best life they could offer. It's easy to take our parents for granted because we know they will love and take care of us regardless of whether we are appreciative of them.
My mum has been a single parent most of motherhood. She and my dad got divorced when I was very young and at that time, she had 4 kids to raise on her own. She remarried later on and had 2 more kids, but got divorced about a year ago. See my whole life, my mum and I talk about everything. From gossip to family drama to finances to business. When I say everything I mean EVERYTHING. She's my bestfriend (yes, Alin so are you *rolls eyes*). Some days I think I'm guilty for taking my mum for granted too. I try my level best to always be more present and see my mum as much as I could even though we live in different houses now. I think I often forget that there is no way I could be the person I am today without her. From her always making sure I get the best education, sending me to music lessons (ok I only lasted a week or so), enrolling me in the best English centers, always looking for fish eggs for me when she goes to the morning market because she knows I love them and everything in between when I was growing up, I am the luckiest child alive because everything good in me and in my life is all thanks to my mum and for some years of my childhood my step dad too.
I have to constantly remember to be grateful because my mum is my anchor. And I pray that I am hers when she needs me to be. Mummy, this blogpost is for you because you deserve all the recognition you can get. If there is one person I could send straight to heaven, it would be you, mum because you are the light of my life. I can't wait to have kids because I want to tell them all about why I will always try to be the best mum. Because I want to give them everything you've given me. Thank you for everything, mummy. I love you.
