Today is Indonesia’s Mother’s day. Different with other countries, Indonesia's Mother's Day has a historical background. Actually, it was the day of the first Indonesian Women Congress that held from December 22 to 25, 1928. It was attended by 30 feminist organizations from 12 cities in Java and Sumatra islands.
The day was originally aimed to commemorate the strength of Indonesian women and to improve the condition of the nation. Nowadays, Mother's Day is celebrated by expressing love and gratitude to mothers.
My mother has passed away in 1999 and I haven’t yet been a mother; but I want to convey appreciation to all mothers in Indonesia.
To all moms in Indonesia :
Mother’s love is incomparable
Mother’s devotion is unique
Mother’s care is inimitable
Mothers are irreplaceable
And no one can ever replace you in my heart
For you are the best Mom
Happy Mother’s Day
I also want to share a poem that not made by me; but it really can express my feeling right now to my mother.
A Poem for My Mother – Shari M. Blom
I miss you so much, your laugh, your smile, your touch.
You always brightened my days with all the smiles you sent my way.
I need you as my angel to always be at my side.
I need you as my angel to give me peace of mind.
I like to think you are near to me to know that you are there.
Even though I can not see you, I feel that you are near.
Please do not forget me Mom, for you are always in my heart, my thoughts and prayers.
I love you...
