For My Mama - Happy Birthday!

1:41 AM

Dear Mama,

When I was in elementary, a classmate asked me how old is my mother into which I replied - 36 years old. You were at that time- only 28. I can't still wrap my head around the fact that at that age (a year younger than I am now), you already have 4 kids, started your first nail salon and has ventured out of the country for the betterment of our future. Not to mention the stories before, during and after that. 

When I was in high school, only a few classmates and friends of mine has seen and met you. Those who did however are in awe with your beauty and grace. They can't believe how young you were and how cool.

You are my idol. I can only wish to be as strong, as resilient, as smart and as gorgeous as you are.

There's no bond quite like a mother and child and ours was the same albeit a bit unconventional. We have been separated for so long that one of the biggest thing I am thankful for is the chance to live in Kuwait and got to be your daughter again. I got to experience my mother again. For that, I am forever thankful. 

Thank you mama for always knowing when to pick me up when my world crashes down. Thank you for the friendship and the confidence that your faith in me instills. Thank you for introducing me to the world of reading, of beauty and of humanity. 

A perfect woman knows where the perfect place to read a good book. 
Your support in whatever that I do is what gives me the confidence and strength to get up and be better everyday. Thank you for always, always being in my corner and having my back. We treasure you and love you more than life itself. 

Most of all, thank you for teaching us how to love unconditionally. You are my mentor, you are my hero, you formed my faith and we are blessed to have you as our Mama. 

Can you see me and Meg on that gorgeous face? =D
You are an amazing soul ever ready to learn something new, always compassionate and kind. I hope you have a hundred more birthday with good health and a strong mind. There'll never be a day in my life when I won't need you. I'm here for you too. We all are. Please remember that.

Happy happy birthday Mama. You make my world a better place.

Love always,
Michelle
