“Women do not have to sacrifice personhood if they are mothers. They do not have to sacrifice motherhood in order to be persons. Liberation was meant to expand women’s opportunities, not to limit them. The self-esteem that has been found in new pursuits can also be found in mothering”
May is the month for the merry. A season of love and thought. The time to give and share. On my calendar, May is joyous because of ;
- Mothers Day
- Nurses Day
- Teachers Day
- Good Friends Birthday ( Stella )
- Mr Husbands Birthday
And the top of the list today is MOTHER’S DAY!!
We all love our mothers. We love how they’d cook for us, talk to us et cetera. I, for one is grateful towards Mother for one thing. She taught me how to read the words of the Quran. She taught me how to mengaji.She found us (her daughters) a good teacher who could guide us into reading the Quranic verses well. It was the most valuable ilmu that she could ever give me. Even a chocolate cake recipe have to settle at 2nd place.
Hence, on this special day .. I have placed an order for a cake and 3 stalks of roses through my favourite florist online.
I first heard of it through my best friend, Mimie during our studies in Manchester. She had wanted to send a birthday cake to her “then boyfriend,now husband” who was already in Malaysia.
From what I know, it is a Malaysian based website and service. It sells bouquets of flowers, cakes and mini gifts at a very reasonable price. Delivery was superbly punctual and the goods arrive in prime condition. I have used love.com to send mothers day and birthday cakes to my family for nearly 5 years now.
This year, I got Mother this :
Payment was easy and secure with Maybank2U and my mother received the cake on the same day I ordered, just like they promised.
Happy Mothers Day!!
