Nostalgia: Mother’s Day

Today is Indonesia’s Mother’s day. Different with other countries, Indonesia's Mother's Day has a historical background. Actually, it is the day of the first Indonesian Women Congress from December 22 to 25, 1928. It was attended by 30 feminist organizations from 12 cities in Java and Sumatra.

The day was originally aimed to commemorate the strength of Indonesian women and to improve the condition of the nation. Today, Mother's Day is celebrated by expressing love and gratitude to mothers.

My mother has passed away and I haven’t yet been a mother; but I want to convey appreciation to all mothers in Indonesia. I also want to share a poem that not made by me; but it really can express my feeling right now to my mother.

A Poem for My Mother – Shari M. Blom
I miss you so much, your laugh, your smile, your touch.
You always brightened my days with all the smiles you sent my way.
I need you as my angel to always be at my side.
I need you as my angel to give me peace of mind.
I like to think you are near to me to know that you are there.
Even though I can not see you, I feel that you are near.
Please do not forget me Mom, for you are always in my heart, my thoughts and prayers.
I love you...

How lovely that Mothers' Day in your country relates to something meaningful, rather than being a construction of gift card sellers as it is here.
