Some mothers are kissing mothers
and some are scolding mothers,
but it is love just the same, and most
mothers kiss and scold together.

(Pearl S. Buck)

 


 

Today is Mother’s Day here in Indonesia.

On the other 364 days, I often think I will never be good enough for her when in reality, she just wants me to be safe, well, and happy.

I may only count the number of times she’s kissed me with my fingers, but there have been countless days when she’s showed me she loves me in every other way.

There’s never a moment – not a minute, not a second, not even a nanosecond – that she doesn’t care.

So get this: Moms scold because they care. If they don’t, they would’ve channeled all her time and energy for something (or someone) else other than you.

You may encounter many defeats,
but you must not be defeated.
In fact, it may be necessary
to encounter the defeats, so you can
know who you are, what you can rise from,
how you can still come out of it.

(Maya Angelou)

 


 

RIP, Maya.

Be softDo not let the world make you hard.
Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let
the bitterness steal your sweetness.
Take pride that even though the rest of the world may
disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

(Kurt Vonnegut)
