TAG: The Age That I Wish To Go Back To

Thanks Sting for this Tag: The Age That I Wish To Go Back To.

I guess I'd like to re-live the moment when I had my eldest daughter, eighteen years ago.

It was during that time in the hospital, experiencing all the 'trauma' of being a new mother that I realized how much Mum sacrificed in her life taking care of my brothers and I.

I was so overwhelmed with the delivery of my daughter that I felt a sudden and great sense of appreciation for my mother. I remembered how when we were down with fever, she'd be rubbing hard boiled eggs on our fore heads and tummies to remove the 'heat'. It was like a ritual and we'd be inspecting the coins to see if they had changed to that 'mysteriously' bronze or black color. How she would stay by our side all night long even though she had to work in the morning.

Doing this tag reminds me much of "that time in my life" when I was 'enlightened' on how Mum had sacrificed for us and how she'd journeyed with me through life.

Yes, indeed, if I could, and in fact I have already, 'realized and re-lived' "that time in my life" just by doing this Tag.

Thank you Sting for reminding me what a great and fantastic Mum I have! *sniff, sniff*
