“I love my mother. Really. But I’ve surrendered to the undeniable fact – that I would never love my mother more than my mother loves me.” – quoted from Bo Sanchez’s article

Mom..
Yesterday I saw you..
Your finger has been hurt for more than a week because of the knife scratches, and it can hurt even longer if you do any house works that involve water. Our housemaid is on holiday. I told you to leave all the dishes till I came home from work everyday, and I would do the wash. But when I got home, you told me happily that you bought a pair of gloves that you could use to wash the dishes. And I saw there were no dirty dishes left. No sadness, no regrets, no perforce in your eyes. I only saw happiness. And I know why. Although you didn’t say, I know. You don’t want to see me tired after one day of work at my office. You want to give me as much rest as possible at home. Your finger hurt is nothing compared to the additional rest you can give me.

It was only one little thing you did for me. One out of a million bigger things you’ve done for me every single day.

I don’t understand why sometimes I forget or don’t realize how much you love me.. When I’m having a bad mood, when I don’t get what I want, when I’m sad because of my own problems, when I’m busy, when.. , when.. , when.. Many times it seems I choose to ignore for a moment what you’ve done for me all these time, all my life. Things that I rarely do for you, but you always do for me as sincere as you can be, expecting nothing at all in return.

I want to say sorry for every pain, every worry, every drop of tear I gave you. I want to say thank you for every piece of love, care, and sacrifice you gave me. But I know it’s not what you want from me. You want ME to be happy, always be happy, as simple as that. You want to see ME smile and be the happiest girl on earth. You don’t need anything from me to continue loving me more than anything in the world.

But I also know something. I know what can make YOU the happiest person on earth. A smile on my face, a hug and love from me. And I will do it, to see a smile on your beautiful face.

Love,
melia

Dear melia, I enjoyed your story very very much. I am always moved to tears when I read words like these from a daughter, a son, to their parents. Gratitude and kindness are such gifts, in return to the gifts of love we receive.

My Mother was just like yours. She was never ever tired and rendered my life easy in so many occasions and for a long time.

I realize now even better than before, how enormous her gift was, because I now live the situation she was living too. Grandchildren ... My children adore her beyond telling, even now that she has moved on.

Thank you, dear melia, for this wonderful write, that made me express my own gratitude once again.

Love,
Margherita :)
Love is the One who masters all things;
I am mastered totally by Love.
