(I just wrote this right now, and I’m tearing up like crazy!! You’re at the office Sara, get it together.)
On the spirit of Women’s Day, I have to write a very special blog. This one is completely dedicated to my mother and I guess you can all dedicate it to your mommies as well. 🙂
On January 5th 1989, exactly at 10 am, you brought me to this planet. You introduced me to a new world, which would soon be my home. Everyday since, you have carried me on you back and raised me like a mother should.
You fed me the best of the best and dressed me like a princess.
You carried me on your back and I can’t imagine how frightened you were when I slipped a little.
I heard how you ran barefoot to get to me when my sisters told you that stupid piece of bread was stuck in my throat.
I love how you always hold me close to your heart.
I know how much you must have prayed for me to come back home when I was in New York.
With all the positive things coming my way right now, I know none of it would be possible without Allah on my side and your daily prayers.
Mom, I don’t know how to thank you for everything that you’ve done for me. People now-a-days can’t handle 3 kids and you raised 7 of us.
7 of whom you raised carefully without any holdbacks.
I know how you still hug me and hold me close to your heart like a little baby. I love it when you do that.
Mom, I love you will all my heart, till the day I die.
I don’t know how I will ever repay you for all your kindness, your love, your heartache.
If I ever become half the woman that you are, I would be the happiest woman on Earth.
Anyway, I just want to tell you how much I miss you right now. I hope my sister is happy that you are with her.
And happy Women’s Day. 🙂
