Ah the joy of May. Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping...it's the best time of the year to celebrate our favorite person in the world, our mothers.
This mother's day, I was not able to spend time with my mother. (She decided to go to my brother's instead, to be a grandma and take care of my niece). Although I'm not going to be able to be with my mom this mother's day, I am thankful for her.
It's been almost a year since my mother was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. I remember the day we found out, and how frightened I was. Was I going to lose my mother? How much time do I have left with her? What can I do?
My mother is my everything. She raised me and my brother all by herself, working long days and coming home to cook dinner at nights. She's an impatient Chinese woman, but she's as strong as a bull. She never show any hurt emotions whenever something bad happened, not when my father left and not when she found out she had cancer.
I love my mother, more than I thought I would ever love her (all those angry times I had with her when I was going through my angst years). Starting this mother's day, I'm going to be a better daughter, to be there for her and not let my fears stop me from loving this godly woman.
She's still battling that evil disease, but I know she's a strong woman and she'll be there for the next mother's day, and the one after, and the one after.
LOVE YOU MOM <3 HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
