Happy Birthday Mama
On the 23rd of January, I was at Singapore with my Mom.
Even though it was Chinese New Year, we went around the city and did some light shopping.
On the 23rd of January, it was my Mom's birthday.
I would like to take this chance to greet my Mom a big Happy Birthday!
For those of you who don't know, it was my mom who raised me. She did it all by herself.
My mom is the best mom in the world because she sacrificed a lot to give me the life I've become accustomed to.
She provides not only the material things I want but she gives me the emotional support I need.
When I came out, I wasn't afraid of what my friends would say or what my own father would say. The only thing I was worried about was what my mom would say and think.
I admit that I have not been a good son in the past and I have done a lot of things that really hurt her so now I'm trying hard to be the best in what I do so that I could make it up to her. So she could be proud of me.
I was afraid of giving her more heartache that's why I was terrified of telling her the truth and when I did, she hugged me and told me she already knew and that she was relieved because she knew I no longer had to keep that secret to myself.
That moment, getting my mothers acceptance, was the best moment of my life.
My mom once told me that she can and will give me everything I want, the only thing she could not give me is a complete family.
Well Mama, I don't need a complete family to be happy because as long as I have you, that's all the family I need to make myself complete.
I wish you good health and more blessings because I know that you are a terrific person not only to me but to everyone else around you.
Happy Birthday Ma.
I love you :)
