Happy Mother’s Day! being a mum is so awesome and great, especially sacrificing for your kids while sometimes they take it as granted
My life goal: hopefully never ever to be a mum cuz my mum is a great one (and I know it’s tough to do so awwwww)
permanent role of a mum
We always keep moving on and changed our roles from time to time
From a university student to a fresh graduate seeking jobs
From a kid to an adult
your job position is changed when you are being promoted or working in different company
But one thing would never change:
Being a mum and being a daughter/son of your mum
Mum never stops worrying about her kids:
worrying about their schooling
from kindergarten, primary school, secondary school, university…
worrying about their relationships with others
worrying about their present/future partners
worrying about their future plans
basically worrying about everything
At the age of 21, my mum worrying about my future career path and giving me confidence when I feel frustrated.
and she said “You never stopped being a mum even your kids become a mother of somebody, things never changed“
The Fault in Our Stars
That made me reminded of The Fault in Our Stars. The story is narrated by Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16-year-old girl with cancer. Hazel is forced by her parents to attend a support group where she subsequently meets and falls in love with 17-year-old Augustus Waters, an ex-basketball player, and amputee. It’s a touching story of a pair of teenagers but also a love story of a family.
One day, she heard her parents’ conversation secretly. Her mum was saying something like “I feel regretted to be a mum… because it is hard to see my kid suffering” Hazel misunderstood and was arguing with her parents. Her mum responded:
Happy Mother’s Day!
being a mum is so great and damn awesome, especially sacrificing for your kids while sometimes they take it for granted. I don’t even know how it feels when my mum gave up her works for me because she doesn’t trust those domestic workers (no offense, I’m so naughty all the time hahaha) I don’t know how hard is it to do all kinds of housework every day until I start helping my mum recently. I remember those days I was so picky about the meals. It is so damn hard to cook for me since I don’t eat vegetables, my mum made it for over 15 years!
Now, we prefer individualism: we cook our own meal, wash our own clothes… only after when we know how tiring is it, not even mentioning my mum is doing it 4 times more than us.
My life goal: hopefully never ever to be a mum since my mum is a great one (and I know it’s tough to do so awwwww)
ps. The Fault in Our Stars suddenly popped out in my mind when I was writing this article, wanna read it again when I left it in my friend, Ilaria’s home in Bologna:(
