I’m 13 years old. It’s Saturday. It’s wonderful to be able to sleep as much as I like to and to wake up fresh and re-energized. I hear rattling noises in the kitchen. I see my mom with her apron on, busy doing stuff in the kitchen. I can smell the fresh-brewed coffee, eggs, bacon and pancakes! “Good morning, dear!” she greets me with a smile on her face. I hear her say, “Sit down and have your breakfast.” The smell and the sight make my mouth watery. I sit down and enjoy my breakfast while watching my mom. She does all these things out of love. You’re wonderful, mom! Thank you!
I’m 10 years old. It’s Saturday and free from school. I wake up and go downstairs. It’s very quiet. I guess my siblings are still sleeping or just in their rooms. I know how to make my breakfast. I know where to get the cereals and milk. I know that by this time, my mom is already out of the house. She goes to work early. She has weekend shifts. I know that she has to go to work in order to provide for us. She makes the sacrifice out of love. You’re wonderful, mom. Thank you!
I’m 6 years old. I wake up and goes to the living room. I see my mom sitting by the window, with my new baby sister. She is looking outside the window. “Good morning, mom. Can I have some breakfast?” She looks at me. I can’t tell if she is tired, or sad, or happy. Her eyes looks like my teddy bear. She just looks at me. “Can you get it yourself, dear?” she asks me. “Ok, Can I watch on my Ipad as well?” I ask her. “Yes” she answers back. I go and kiss my baby sister. She is so cute; so adorable. One morning, my mom came home with her. You’re wonderful mom! Thank you!
I’m 50 years old. I wake up and do my early morning rituals. I now have a family of my own. I have my own kids. I think about my mom and her life. She is now 81 years old. I haven’t called her for a while now. I’ve been busy the whole week, both at work and at home. I pick up my cell phone and call my mom. We talk about small things and some problems. But she is always patient and ready to give advice and solace. Mom, you are wonderful! I thank you for everything!
