I haven't been in the best of health these past 5 days and I had an exam on Sunday. So it was a tough one.
When you become independant, working away from home and being sick, you start to remember how amazing it was when you always had your mom by your side to take care of you. I know I'm turning 24 this year, but I have to admit, when I got home over the weekend, I constantly craved for my mom's attention and she looked after me just the way she did the last 23 years of my life. Eventhough I knew she didn't have to, since I'm a grown adult. But, she did. Words just can't describe how that made me feel. I started crying when she hugged me and took some iced-water to pour on my head. A mother's love is unconditional. It made me realize, no matter how old I get, or no matter how 'independant' I claim to be, I will always need my Ummi.
One day if my Ummi no longer has the strength to take care of her family, I hope and pray that I will always be there for her and give her the love and affection that she had for me. Ameen.
