#88LOVELIFE: Quote #53

Dear son,

I hope you remember that when you were small, your mother was so afraid of not taking good care of you enough. She always felt a little behind compared to other mothers. She did not know how to be motherly. All she knew was that the she loved you so much, and that her love for you was the only thing that made her want to seize the day no matter how difficult. You know what makes her proud? She is proud to have you. That alone is an achievement for her.

When you are bigger, please know that your job is not to make your mother proud. There are no debts to pay back. She raised you to let you go into the world strong and brave, not to see you cling on her forever. Your job is to make yourself proud because you know you are doing the best you can to make this world a better place. Your mother will always be proud of you, so take that as a bonus. The world? It is waiting for you to astonish them, and she knows you will.

Bener banget...Kadang orang tua belum bisa menerima bahwa anak adalah titipan Tuhan yang harus dibesarkan dengan baik tanpa berharap balas budi darinya

I got teary eyed reading this. Your son must feel loved by your genuine affection, Diana. And he must feel so proud of having you as his mother. I know he does, I know he will.
