Mummy, mommy and mama to name a few are the common names we call our mother. In my home country, we normally call our mother Mama whereas here in the UK, they’re usually called Mummy. What do you call your mother?
I want to share this quote which had caught my attention and made me pondered on….
I find this quote so captivating as it gives the motherly love and parental responsibility of paramount importance. For me, it means that every mother who showers warmth, fosters independence and security amongst her children enables every child to bear roots to stand on one’s own feet confidently. To grow wings that will make them capable to fly and reach out for their dreams, ambitions and destiny.
My Captured Moment for this week is a photo of my mama and myself way back 2008, when we celebrated our birthday together as we used to being it just 2 days apart.
Since I got married and moved over here in the UK, me and my husband have been entirely self-reliant with bringing up our own kids and the family. I can confidently say that we have done well on our own feet. It brings out the best in ourselves. Of course I have to thank my parents especially my mama for molding me the way I am, a mature, sensible and responsible person. I have to thank her too for teaching me every little things since I was a child as I have perfected it now being a wife and a mummy. I assumed she had shaped me in a way that leaning unto her is unnecessary as I grow into my own individual self.
Anyhow, our family life is made easier with a well managed family routine in place. Although having said that, no matter how perfectly established and suitable it is to the current situation, there’s still no assurance of it to remain unshaken. Sometimes it goes wrong too with sudden change of circumstance or even sickness can cause it to fall apart. In fact, these last few weeks, our stable routine has been tested to the edge. To the extent that both me and my husband struggled to cope.
In times of tough moments like this, I want to reach out to my mama to support me physically and emotionally. I wish she’s here nearby whom I can call anytime when I need a helping hand. I wish she just live around the corner whom I can rely to look after the kids when I’m away to work. I badly want her as a shoulder to lean on. Somebody who will comfort me and tell me that everything is fine.
I don’t think the quote applies to me after all… no matter how comfortable I am with myself and my family, I am still yearning for my Mama so dearly.
Do you agree with the quote?
Do you miss your mum too?
