coffee break 1.8

Mother

If I could give you diamonds

for each tear you cried for me

if I could five you sapphires

for each truth you've helped me see

If I could give you rubies

for the heartache that you've known

If I could give you pearls

for the wisdom that you've shown
Then you'll have a treasure, mother
that would mount up to the skies

That would almost match
the sparkle
in your kind and loving eyes

But I have no pearls, no diamonds,

As I'm sure you're well aware

So I'll give you gifts more precious

My devotion, love and care.

Mother by ~Bikash

It is the time of the year where we show the first woman in our lives our deepest gratitude --- our mothers. Beginning with that grateful poem above, this week's coffee break (however late I have posted it), celebrated in time with Mother's Day, seeks to gather heart-warming stories of motherhood, as you try to:

Recall the most treasured conversation you had with your mother.

I rarely have the chance to talk to my mother now, at least personally. We're miles apart, and sadly enough I only get to see my mother once or twice every two months or so. But the 'text lines' are still there.

i am one of those daughters who doesn't have that deep relationship with their mothers or fathers. don't get me wrong here, i love my parents to death! its just maybe i grew up not having that kind of relationship others may have (the closeness) with their parents until the time i got married. maybe its bec i dont live with my parents anymore and this is the time wherein i miss them the most. i am learning to appreciate everything my mother has taught me and done for me which i took for granted while i was still young and single. thanks jan for posting this topic --- makes me want to blog about my relationship with my parents!

Jan, I can't really think of a specific conversation. My thoughts on the topic are here, though.
