Valentine's gift for my mum

mum with my girl at Hotel Mercure in JB last Dec

Mum stayed with me after I had given birth to my youngest child. Initially it was not easy to persuade her to come and stay with me. She preferred her own house.

When I needed her help, she refused. So I told my brother about the situation. A few days later, my brother called me and told me mum would come and stay with me. He related to me that mum was worried that I would treat her like a servant if she stayed with me. So my brother being my mum's pet managed to bring her to her senses. How could a daughter treat her mum like a servant?

Actually, I had already planned to resign from teaching as I couldn't afford to send all my kids to baby sitters. When finally I heard the good news from my brother, I was so happy as I didn't need to resign.

So mum stayed with me faithfully until recently that she requested to retire. I had approved it as I don't teach anymore. I can cater to my kids' needs easily as my husband's shop is nearby my house. For your information, I had stopped teaching for 3 years by the end of this month. Mum has retired since April last year. But she still came to my house a number of times. And my husband still gave her some pocket money.

So this year I wanted to give something special to my mum. I called her yesterday and told her to come to my house in March. She's always ever willing to come. I told her that I'm taking her for a vacation. She sounded happy.

Of course, she's going with me only. I haven't taken her anywhere far except Singapore.

Mum, I love you.
