July 27 is my mom’s birthday. This year she will be celebrating her 50th birthday. We didn’t realize how fast time goes right? As I always mention, life is too short – same goes with time goes so fast. Time is gold, I couldn’t agree more.
Who don’t love their mother? Ok I assume no hand was raised. We do love our mother no matter what. To those who have no biological mother must appreciate their adopted mother too. Some mothers are strict and some are lovely. Some seem busy with work all the time and some seem never love you or has her chosen kid in the family. No matter what, mother will always love you and same to you love your mother. Who are we without mother? We’re nobody.
Mom lost her 2 watches when there was a theft on my car. She was upset because one of them was given by her department for excellence work after 25 years with Mine and Land Department. I was speechless when her precious thing got stolen by irresponsible person. My car window was broken. She was also upset with her cell phone lost. Again I was speechless. I will buy those things again as soon as I could do so. I will start with the watch.
I bought her a golden watch last Friday. I went to the mall with two colleagues – Linda and Zaki. I trusted their choice. After few considerations I bought mom a watch, gold platted with some tiny diamond around the surface. I knew she loves gold. I smiled. I know I would be happy to see she is happy.
I didn’t wrap the box. I made it plain and simple. Yesterday after the wedding I attended in the daytime, I drove home excitedly to do the countdown. I didn’t want to play Ragnarok at first but I was afraid I would fall asleep and wake up after 12. I played the game, so I killed 2 hours.
My sister and I planned to take my whole family somewhere near the sea for grilled fish. I knew she loves fish a lot. Daddy was outside. He called mom that he bought some prawn noodles. My sister and I both looked at each other face with an expression “Are we changing plan now?”
Yes, all of us were full after eating the prawn noodle. It was delicious – dad is always good at buying foods. The prawns were fresh.
Dang! My alarm rang set on my cell phone. With full of excitement, I called mom’s cell phone to come to my room to give her a surprise. When she entered my room, I wished her birthday, kissed her hand, kissed her both cheek and gave the present to her. She opened it and a big smile emerged on her face. “Thank you so much my lovely son” she said. I was happy, I smiled.
Everybody grouped in her room. With Body Shop set from my youngest sister and Hadi, perfume from dad, handbag from younger sister and bra from untie. She smiled and I could tell it was one of the happy moments she ever had. All in sudden blackout! She was shock and grumbled. My youngest sister appeared with Hadi. They brought in a cake with few candles on the top. We sang happy birthday to mom while Hadi switched on the main switch back. Mom fed all of us the cake not to forget to my lovely little niece too. She kept screaming seek for attention as all of us put our attention on mom. It was funny.
I walked slowly to my room, I felt exhausted. I wanted to stay up so I didn’t turn the light off. In a blink, I fell asleep. When I woke up it was 6am and my room was dark.
Now I’m waiting for mom to wake up and make sure she is happy for the whole day.
I love you so much mom. Happy birthday, long life and God bless…
