My mama's been in London for about a week now.
She knew how crazily stressed out I've been and made very sudden trip-arrangements to see me in England. When she called me up to tell me about her plans, you wouldn't believe how happy and relieved I was.
It's been so wonderful having her around. She's been helping me deal with uni-related stress and anxieties. Only my close friends and family know just how tensed I get. I'm just horrid at dealing with stress. One of my achilles heel.
I can't think of a time I'd ever tell myself "I don't need my mum anymore". I'll probably always need her in my life. Who else is going to give me life advice and guide me every step of the way? Who else is going to hug me 'til I feel better?
Since she's been around we've been venturing around London as well as exploring the English countryside. Some of the villages are so pretty and my mum's such a tourist. Gosh.
Look how clear the water is. And the duckies are so cute.
2 days ago, my housemates joined my mum and I for an awesome Italian dinner.
I'm so glad that my mum loves my housemates as much as I do. As mentioned a couple times before; I love them so incredibly much. They've such good hearts and I wouldn't be sane without them.
I'm such a smiley person that people hardly know when I'm stressed out or upset. Even when they see me stressed out; they often underestimate the impact it has on me. I can be quite fragile at times. Big baby, I know.
Being thousands of miles away from home doesn't help either. I've been getting constant hugs from my mum. And since day 1, she's been stroking my hair every night until I fall asleep. Just an hour ago, we were both slow dancing in circles to Whitney Houston songs. Cheesy right?
But I love my mama. You know, we often take our mothers for granted. They've literally done eeeverything for us since our day of birth. And very rarely do we thank our mothers for their selflessness. They constantly worry about our wellbeing and work tirelessly for us. Despite our temperaments as teens and adults, they somehow forgive us each time.
So peeps, be a sport and make time to thank your mothers even if it's just a post-it saying 'thank you'. DO IT. You wouldn't be where you are today without the support of your mother or the fact that she could have easily disowned you when you were a baby. But hey now, lets not go there.
I love you, mama.
