You don’t need to be great with words to express your love to your mother. But some of us have to fall back to words for various reasons. Maybe we don’t get to see our moms too often.

But remember how when we were young, even our ugly hand-made cards meant the world to them? We used to spend hours drawing stick figures of us holding hands. And now, we disconnect her call just because we’re “a little busy”. To us, every conversation with our moms seem the same. “Did you eat?”, “Will you work late today?”… same questions every single time. But think about it for a bit – maybe she really wants to know.
