"Anakanda yang amat ku sayangi,
Pastinya ibu rindu bagai nak pecah dada. So, how are you getting on? I hope the money that was banked-in is sufficient? Do spend wisely dear. So, you miss my advice. Wow that's a relief and I'm thankful that u consider all that's being said as advice. Alhamdullillah (Well, I kinda thought you would think of it as bebelan. Hi hi) Anyway, for the time no wise advise yet. Just trying to get the feel of going back to work. Urghh.. If only I have a choice. Aha just remembered. Your dad told me that you have something to tell/ask me? What was it dear? I hope nothing serious. Do get back to me, okay? Love to hear from you. Bye sweetheart and take care."
I received an e-mail from ibu. It's been a month my mails empty since she flew away to Mekah. I've called her and told her what I've been through, when she much too far away. And her feedback was exactly the same like my friends gave. But then, I felt relieved hearing from her.
That's so called "mom's power". Tak hirau samada nasihat itu membantu atau tidak, but at least it'll calm us a bit. Terasa satu beban berat yang dipikul yang dihempap, sudahpun dialih oleh kuasa ibu. Dan, itu salah satu sebab yang akan mengeratkan kami.
