Sweetest Gift

It was a fun ride to school last week when I overhead my children were discussing among themselves about celebrating Mother's Day! This is not a tradition in the family like we do birthdays every year but it has been commercialised ever since and broadcast all May on TV; they even talk about it with their schoolmates and what more the teachers even tell them to honor Mothers on this special day!

Personally speaking, I always feel that I don't need a special day to celebrate my Mother because she is always in my heart even though we live a distance away. There's a special bond between us and all I need to do is pray for her every moment and just pick up the phone and talk to her. I visit my Mother whenever time allows but deep in my heart I wish I lived closer! I honor my Mother, I cherish her, I respect her and I think of her...still I miss her cooking...hmm. All I know every single day is Mother's Day! She gave me my first breath, she gave me life, she gives me the best, she educates me, she gives me constant advices and reminders (phew), she gave me lectures (hehe), she made me the person I am today...without her I wouldn't be here!

Mothering four children is the best thing that ever happens in my life! I see their faces every single second (and when they are at school, I think of them). I think this is what my Mother goes through all the while...thinking, having fear and doubts yet convinced, hoping, praying and loving endlessly.
I love motherhood {although very tiring but rewarding!}.
This is what my children try do anyway; honoring me in their own ways. After dinner, they did some coloring but only Anis was determined and excited to do her artwork ... "this is for Mommy..." I heard her whisper to her brother. I watched her enthusiast and happiness. 'Alyaa gave her some ideas, 'Arif helped out a bit and Afza played with some crayons. It was great to watch the siblings work together.

I love Anis's creations so much that I would like to share her beautiful art on my blog!

...Anis use crayon and her imagination to create "Colors of My Life"...

...Anis name this art "Hectic Life"...

..."Apple Tree"...said Anis :)

..."Blue Rose"...ini untuk ibu (this is for mom)...
Back to my children's discussion in the car, I overheard their plans to buy me artificial flowers and so I chipped in and suggested they get me real flowers instead! That way we can take good care of it and watch it grow every day just the way we are. We spotted a beautiful sunflower at the nursery and although they have agreed to fork out some money from their piggy banks to buy me flowers, I paid for my sweetest gift from my children, lol. Anis is so happy after we repotted the plant; she said she will look after it {"...and you too Mom"; she promised} forever and ever! How sweet!   

Hope you have a great day and thanks for visiting me!
Hugs!

  4. How sweet. Love Anis's creations. Why don't you show them at Flying unicorn's Kidz Corner?
    The sunflowers are gorgeous. Never mind if you have to pay for them. it's their thoughts that count.
