Called my mom my up had a little chat with her, then suddenly she was telling me that one of her friends succumbed to diabetes and bid farewell to this world at the age of 70.
Then she began to remind me profusely that should take care of my health, stop drinking so and so forth. When i finally put down the phone, it got me thinking, my mom could sometimes be hard to get along with, she could be so biased to certain degrees towards her own children and grandchildren that sometimes strain my relationship with her.
In retrospect, she is still a mom like any other mothers who still cannot stop keep reminding her children about this and that all out of the love for the children...
I used to disagree with a lot of her ways of handling things, she obstinately snub me off and left me feeling bad of me talking hard to an old lady.
I can only pray that in the her living and remaining years, she will be happy through it all and as for me, i try to be less vocal in voicing my opinions.
Now i realized she is 70 +, she should be happy and may the Good Lord keep her safe and warm.
P/S : She raised me up
