Celebrating the 70th birthday of my mother

Last May 9, 2018, was the 70th birthday of my mother. Even though my mother died 29 years ago, we still celebrate her birthday every year. It is our way of telling her that she is loved and remembered even if she is no longer with us. Our mother played the important part in our life. Because of her, we grew up responsible human beings. Her teachings are still alive and we are passing it to the next generation of the family. My mother’s absence is our strength to continue with life through her teachings. We missed her like every day of our lives.

On her 70th birthday, I can tell that my mother is happy up there because we are complete. Yes, my older brother with his fiancee and my younger brother with his wife and son did come to celebrate with us. They gave time to come and visit our mother at the cemetery. Also, we brought her grandchildren so my mother can see them. She was not able to be with them because she died early. We brought flowers for her and light candles for her. And cooked the family’s favorite dishes to complete the celebrations.

Mother, I know that you are happy wherever you are. Always know that we love you and you will always be in our hearts. Thank you for everything. Please continue to watch us and guide us every day. Happy birthday mother, we love you and we missed you very much.
