We often forget to revisit the past or really appreciate the histories of the most meaningful people in our lives. Sometimes the day we are born might mark a period where our reference points and our perspectives begin. Sometimes we forget to dig deeper and reexamine the beautiful lives leading up to our own. Sometimes we need to hear, experience and gain insight on past to truly understand the simple thing we have. If we took the time to ask and to learn about the motherly figures in our lives, we will soon realize the magnitude of little thing they do.
My mom and Grandma are two women in my life that carry incredible stories. Their journeys are a testament to their strength, courage and determination to succeed. I will forever carry with me, their pride and their values. I can attribute most of my sensitivity and compassion to these women.
Thank you Mom and Nge Nge (人人) for all instilling in me and giving me the heart to learn and the heart to love. I vow to be the living examples of the spirits in your experiences. Your stories will be a consistent reminder of how lucky I am.
Happy Mother’s Day!
