The One With Mummy's Birthday

As I'm making this entree, Mummy had just been discharged yesterday from SGH. About a week after her birthday, we came up with a conspiracy plan with Aunt Rehana, a true genuine friend of Mummy, to get her see a doctor/specialist about her swelling feet. We are left with little choices as she is just plain stubborn. She did and I must say that she was lucky. They found out her lungs was filled with water. So she had to stay in ward for about 4 days for thorough examination. When I received that sms from Ayah, I am left numbed, my world was at a standstill wondering if I ever get to see Mummy much much longer in days and years to come. Playback in my memory was the small surprise celebration we had for her. As we gathered for Doa Selamat, she sat there crying openly, and she said: "Tak tahu tahun depan ada lagi tak diri ni". At that point, I realised how much I love Mummy, and how much she had done for me, for my brothers and I am not ready to see her go. She recalled that Nenek passed away when she was 57 years old. Today, Mummy is 57 years old. We celebrated her birthday on February 14th, 2006. May Allah bless all the good deeds she had done in her life. She may not be the perfect mother, the perfect wife, the perfect woman... but to me, that does not matter, she is my Mummy. Know one knows her better than Ayah and me. I love you Mummy, sincerely with all my heart. :) The usual suspects... Cake cutting time. Firdaus and Faustine fighting for the knife. Yikes. Rushda is too young, so she just looked on. Ayah loves Mummy so much that he resorts to turning to Aunt Rehana for a big favour. It is very romantic and loving of a husband to do anything in this world just to make his wife healthier and happier. I must thank Aunt Rehana and Safia for their great assistance. For now, Allah will repay their kindness and reward them with Jannah. I hope I will find one whom I can bring the friendship as far as Mummy and Aunt Rehana did.
