Another story about my mom and me

Posted on

mothers day 01

Down on memory lane, I recalled having high fever at the age of nine.  Mom tried keeping the temperature down by using a straw fan.  That was close to midnight, the lights was off but her hand was still moving.  The cool breeze did not stop my heart from moving too.  I told mom, “It’s alright, I’m fine, don’t have to worry about me..”

 I saw tears welling in her eyes, even though the room was dark, but I could feel her sobbing in the darkness.

mothers day 02Till today, I can recalled the moment we touched each others heart so much.  So much so that the offer of her un-returnable warm light keeps beaming.  Just like the rising sun, giving us warm without asking for any returns.  Treat your mother well; treat mother’s nature well.

Happy Mother’s day!

    She was so worried about you! What a caring mother, and a nice memory.

    You have a precious and endearing way of expressing yourself, Sydney. My mother had a special velvet and satin comforter she would place on my bed to cover me when I was feeling badly. It had silk tassels that I would finger until I could fall asleep. Mothers that make us feel protected, cared for and loved create moments that are remembered by us forever. Thanks for sharing one of yours. 🙂

        No, my mother passed away in September of 2006, and my dad in September of 1990. I am now an orphan.

        Sounds good. We’d be good parents, I’m sure. At least we know what it is like to be orphans. My mom always said that was how she felt after her parents died. They were very close as well. 🙂
