My Mum painting on Chinoiserie furniture
To say that my Mum is my favourite person in the world is an understatement. (But what about your hubby? You ask. Well this is a Mother’s Day tribute, so I don’t think he will mind) She is my role model, my hero, my pride and joy.
I’ve never met a more generous person than her. No one enters her house without being fed and clothed. And no one leaves without a lift and a bag of her gourmet goodies. Her fridges and freezers are full of dumplings, spring onion cakes and wontons that she makes for those in need. She would rather starve than to see others without food. My Mum regularly takes care of overseas visitors, the elderly, the poor, extending her hospitality even to strangers.
I’m not telling you all this to brag about my Mum. I’m bragging about God. It is because of the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ that my Mum has become so selfless and kind over the years. Even when the very people she cares for are mean to her, she continues to bless them. Her face is always radiant with joy, her mouth filled with thanksgiving and her knees quick to kneel to pray for others. They say that you can’t chose your family. Well, I’m glad! I could never have chosen a more wonderful mother. And I am so blessed to call her ‘MaMa’.

This is my first Mother’s Day as a Mum (technically last year’s didn’t count since baby was still inside…) so it feels extra special. I hope that whether it is your first, or your fiftieth, you will have a memorable Mother’s Day: surrounded by your family, showered with love, and treasured by all. Happy Mother’s Day beloveds!
