My mother wanted to join me on my walk / read session at the beach.
I asked why she wanted to come along, she said she missed how my late father would bring us out to the beach and for that reason, i am here to bring you. We used to do picnics at East Coast with nasi lemak and lazy chairs all the time.
Times may have change but we should never stop giving the best to our parents. Just how we have given the best to ourselves, our own family and friends. It is our obligation to ensure the best for our parents.
I guess, we never really know what our mothers think about behind the strong front she puts on all the time. We never know the kind of stress she is experiencing. Doesn’t mean she is a housewife, groceries are all she thinks about. We never know how the stress in the children’s lives have impacted our mothers. If they don’t express it, doesn’t mean we cannot ask if she is ok or how was her day.
I hope you have set aside some time for your parents this weekend too.
