Back in May 1999 I bought a card for my mother. I was then teaching in Taiwan and I was planning in sending it to her for Mother’s Day. But Mother’s Day came and went and I wasn’t able to send the card. My mother passed 2 months before Mother’s Day the following year. The card I intended to send her was sitting in my drawer for years after that. I cry everytime I would see it and think about it as it would have been my last Mother’s Day present for her. So every mothers day, I make it my personal mission to remind everyone I know to get their mothers something on this special day. I failed to do it one year and it is something I will never forget.
I don’t have a mother to buy a present for now and I don’t know which hurts more. Failing to send her that one last mothers day present or the fact that I can no longer do that even if I want to. All I can do now is whisper: Happy Mother's Day, Nay!...and hope in my heart that she "hears" me.
