10th May 09

I was waken up at 8 o’clock by a call from home. It’s my dad and he found out my calling last night and called back. Nothing serious to talk about, just a few chin-chins like how was the May Day going and so on. And I asked how is mom and was replied all things are fine. Then they hung up as the usual home calling before.
The calling I made last night was just for the Mothers’ Day’s calling. Although maybe my mom doesn’t know what and when is the Mother’s Day, or even never care about it. But I try my best to make myself to remember that.
Maybe it is a coincidence, today is 10th May, my birthday, also the second Sunday of May, the Mothers’ Day. Of course, our births was given by our mothers, but for me, it’s has more association. Or she gave much more to my birth.
I am the second child, born at the time that made me the children outside the state plan. As a result of getting pregnant with me, my mother lost her job and merely my father’s. All other relatives were refused to let me to be remained.That’s to say, I almost couldn’t be in this world.
Then my brave mom asked help from her mother, and they make the decision to go to her sister to hide and give birth. She went to another town near the sea which is far away from the hometown city. At there, I was born and live a few years without “being hunt”.
In fact, I can’t remember my early childhood. Maybe because the language of the small town is different from my home town which I lived later. I live at there almost 6 or 7 years. Mom said that she was so sad that even cried every time when she came to visit me, I called her aunt and called the real aunt mother.
In the memory that I can remember, mother was a restrict and fearful when I was a child and teen. She was looking at everything of mine. Turn me into a well-behaved little boy from a wild child. Asked me to study hard, as me to do houseworks, ask me not to play with the bad boys, ask me not go out without permission… Endless requirement in short.
It’s her who taught me to study hard, who taught me to live independently, who always has endless things to blame me.
But that’s her, my mother, who I owed so much. Happy mothers’ day to you!
