Assalaamu ‘alaikum semua. Salam sejahtera.
Hari Ibu bakal menjelang. Kami sekeluarga memang jarang buat acara istimewa untuk hari-hari macam ni. Harijadi pun kami jarang sambut hebat-hebat. Cukup sekadar potong kek di rumah.
Namun KakRaja teringat mendapat mesej Hari Ibu dari anak KakRaja beberapa tahun dulu.
Mesej Dari Seorang Anak
“Another essay. This time I can guarantee you that it is SUPER long.
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY Za Yusniza. On this very special day, I would like to say A MASSIVE THANK YOU TO YOU! To me, you’re the best, most wonderful, most sensitive, funniest, happiest and craziest (in a good way) mother.
You’ve been so kind to me. So helpful. So strict. So stern. So caring. And with that, I can say that I am truly and fully BLESSED for having one great superb mother. Thank you God.
My mother is a CSI/FBI/top secret policewoman. ESPECIALLY in the house. She controls everything of course. And she monitors everything.
At first I feel it’s kinda irritating because, just imagine someone checking your messages and especially PRIVATE ones. OMG. And then something bad happened to me. Something that was never expected to happen to ME.
It happened last year. Thanks to my know-it-all mother, she solved the problem by ‘arresting’ the guy. With this, I am still safe. I am saved by my mom! Without her, I.. I am speechless. It could’ve been worse.
Then there will be times when she’s the boss. Ask us to do this, do that. And all I did was, “Ishhh” “Penatlah” and all sorts of unpleasant-to-the-ear word. There’s also a time when she scolded me so badly. I don’t remember why but she was super angry that time. That time, I cried and I said to myself “Why do u always scold me?”
Then I realized something :
1. She’s not busybody. She’s just watching me so that I won’t do bad stuff. So that I won’t cross my boundaries. So that I know my limits. That case, was so bad that it became my greatest fear of all time. Even I myself didn’t expect those kinds of things to happen. To me. At a very young age.
And my mom didn’t even scold me for that. Instead, she gave me advice. I don’t deserve it. No I DON’T. Oh mom why do you have to be soooooo kind?
2. She’s not a boss. She’s a captain. A leader. The reasons why she asked me to do a LOT of these things is to teach me. To give me experience on doing housework. Not to be bossy, but to turn her kids into wonderful and hardworking people.
3. The scolding part, I’m crying now actually, because its Mother’s Day and I already made her mad. Every time I got scolded, I blamed my mom. I NEVER thank her for scolding me. Not even once. I admit. I’m a jerk and ungrateful plus unthankful child. I deserved my mom, but my mom don’t deserve this helpless child.
All those times I made her cry. Its all because of stupid things. At times when I’m happy, I let my mom cry to herself silently. I bet she’s gonna cry a lot today. Deep inside, she wishes HER mom Happy Mother’s Day, who passed away 2 years ago. I know why are you mad, and I don’t blame you mom. I missed grandma too.”
And Another Message
I AM FULLY, REALLY SORRY FOR EVERYTHING. YOU TRIED EVERYTHING TO MAKE US HAPPY. YOU HELPED US WHEN WE NEED YOU. YOU’RE LIKE A NURSE. BUT WE GAVE YOU NOTHING IN RETURN.
I don’t know how to put these in words anymore. But I wanna say Thank You for Everything That You Have Done For Me. Countless times You Have Spent For Me. Wonderful and Pleasant Memories That YOU gave Me.
Last but not least, THANKS FOR GIVING BIRTH TO ME. FOR TAKING CARE OF ME WHEN I WAS A CHILD. YOU’RE THE MOST PRECIOUS DIAMOND ON THIS EARTH. LOVE YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FREAKING MUCH.
You’re the most beautiful human in this huge yet small world. Thank you for the time, money and LOVE you gave to your kids. Reallllyyy appreciate it. Thanks for scolding me. Thank you for nagging at me. Thank you for everything you have done for me. Never knew you cared so much until today.”
And I cried buckets on that day when I received the message.
Mesej ini berjuta-juta kali lebih bernilai dari segala jenis sambutan.
Macam tu lah.
