When was the last time you spent your afternoon just sitting down, feeling the silence and yet overjoyed because you were with someone you love?
Mine was this afternoon when I had a cup of icecream not with any of my boyfriend (think of Westlife members here LOL) but with my mom who’ll be turning 55 tomorrow.
The 20 minute icecream moment at a busy mall was so much a relief that the DQ icecream was just a bonus because God has given me the time to just sit silently and yet feel the love of a mother as I recalled about our great memories together.
Yes, at the back of my mind, I am so grateful that I have a mom who corrects me when I am wrong, who pushes me to my potentials and who loves me just the way I am.
Today as I looked at her eyes, I know she is also thinking of how a great Daughter I have been and perhaps thanking the Lord because I am her child (okay, I’m not being proud in here because she would always be so vocal of this ) but Tomorrow, in her birthday, I’d tell her that I am nothing without her, my mother who rebukes me whenever I am sliding down. My mother whose life is an inspiration to me.
Try to recall that moment. In silence you find peace. In solitude, joy.
