Before I go on to blogging how wonderful and relaxing my mother’s day was – I wanted to take a few minutes in wishing my beloved mother a Happy Mother’s day. I believe in spirits and I believe she is watching from above. I miss you dearly and think about you every single day – not a day pass by that you’re not in my mind. My childhood was painful and very vague. I don’t really remember much of how I was when I was a child. Maybe sometimes not remembering is better than remembering? I love to remember the good times than the bad times – but I guess memories don’t work that way? I grew up from an abusive family and all I could remember was yelling and hitting.
Till this day – I’m very scared and frightened by it. I remember sometime last year when I was in Vancouver – I was living with my Aunt and Uncle and they rented the main floor to two families. One morning – I heard a father yelling at his own son and there were some movements. I was half asleep when I heard it but my heart was pounding throughout the whole argument and it brings me back to my childhood. These scary memories will be something I like for it to go away but it doesn’t seem like it will – I believe it will carry on for the rest of my life. The only thing I can change is NEVER allowing my own children going through what I went through.
Growing up – I had so many unanswered questions in my heart. Did my mother have an easy labor? Was anyone there for her during her labor? Was I a hard baby to take care of? How was I like when I was a child? Did I cause a lot of sleepless nights? And there is a ton more questions and it’ll be forever unanswered. In a way – I accepted that because that’s how my life is. But on other days – I’m curious to know.
I miss you so much Mommy! Thanks for watching over me and giving me this wonderful life now. I know somehow you worked your way from above giving me this wonderful life I have now. I’m forever grateful & blessed. You’re the one that makes me appreciate every single little thing in life!
Back to my 3rd Mother’s day – that was an emotional paragraph to type out and it made me cried a bit.
I started off the day at the Spa for a 75 minute facial and 60 minute body massage. I felt like I was in haven for two hours. It was a much needed body massage even though I had one from the week before. Due to working on my blog constantly – my neck and back is very tense and tired – so it was nice having one on Mother’s day.
After two hours being away from my husband and my son. I came out and found yellow flowers and a card placed on my seat. How sweet was that right? It was my first time receiving Mother’s day flowers this year and I was quite surprised by it.
After my spa session – we headed over to my Godmother’s workplace to drop off this bouquet of cuteness for her. I was so worried she wasn’t at work but good thing she was! She was quite surprised I showed up!
Than we headed to Jayden’s Godfather’s place to spend some quality time with him. I love to watch my son be surrounded with positive and genuine people – good role models in his life are so important. The love and care his Aunties and Uncles give him is unbelievable. I rather have him spoiled by love and care than toys. Love and care is something that you can’t buy.
I didn’t ask for any fancy dinner but instead all I asked for was a ‘peaceful’ dinner – when you become a mother – there’s no such thing as ‘peaceful dinners’ in your dictionary. I got what I wanted because Munchkin had a late nap! That was such a sweet treat for me – aren’t I easy to please?
After my ‘peaceful dinner’ in bed – I headed to get my roots re-done and a haircut. That nearly took up my whole night – three long hours. I’m such a happy camper now because those roots bothered me for such a long time!
My 3rd Mother’s day is quite a pamper and relaxing day! I love every bit of it. But one thing I totally forgot about was – taking family photos! What a bummer right?
