A Mother's Love
I'm lucky to receive a mother's deep, unconditional love.
The kind of love expressed in sacrifices, big and small.
The kind of love that puts others' interests first, rather than her own.
The kind of love that taught me warmth, kindness, generosity, and patience.
The kind of love that brings her worry, keeping her up at night, when her daughters are in pain.
The kind of love that insists she visit the dental clinic when her daughter gets a wisdom tooth extraction.
The kind of love that would make her buy a plane ticket to fly home when her daughter had dengue.
The kind of love that never fails to send a message at night, to her daughters. To say good night. To say, "I miss you." To say, "I love you."
