I haven’t called my mother for quite some time now. So, I thought why not give her a call.

As I was calling her, there was something that came over me. The phone was still ringing and I felt as if I had missed out on my entire childhood.  Like I was not there to accompany my mother. I felt that I had left her for a long time.

And then, the conversation goes somewhat like this:

Me: Mom, I’m calling to see how you are doing. I have not talked to you for a while, Is everything ok?

Mom: Yes, everything is normal as usual.

Then the silence continues.

Me: What are you doing?

Mom: Nothing. Just staying home.

Me: Mom, I been having bad dreams.

Mom: What kinds of dreams? Have you been praying?

Me: No, not really.

Mom: I’ll pray for you.

She continues to pray for me. I felt so much love at that moment that I started to cry on the phone. She asked me why I was crying and I said I missed her. And being an Asian mom, she was confused because we do not tell each other we miss each other often. She thought I was dying or something. Hahaha.

Thank you, mommy. No matter how far or how long I did not call you, you always know what best for me.

I love you mom!!!!
