Mother of Mother's day 母亲节的母亲
Today is Ascension Thursday, it commemorates Christ's Ascension into heaven 40 days after his Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
My wife and I attended the 7:00 am Mass, using Father George's words, to bid farewell to Jesus ... his departure from this earth to take up the rightful place in Heaven.
After breakfast, we bought 2 packets of Nasi Lemak to visit Andrew whose wife Ann has been admitted to Kajang Hospital few days ago due to mild heart attack. (hopefully you won't say why so cheap one, nasi lemak only! It is the thought that counts)
At the gate, we were surprised to see Ann sweeping the porch! She is home.
She has undergone many tests including CT heart scan at the National Heart Institute (IJN), Kuala Lumpur. She is a little weak but otherwise doing fine and would go back for the test results in a few weeks time. It was suspected that her heart condition was related to her rheumatoid conditions. She also suffers from knee pain (her knee condition is worse than mine).
Andrew, himself suffered from some medical conditions, complained that he could not sleep during her wife's one week absence from home. He missed his wife! ( I did not tell him that my wife is leaving me for six weeks to Europe!)
Surely not only Andrew missed his wife, their two children at home ( the eldest girl has married) also missed their mom too.
Ann is a devoted wife and mother. Besides having a career as a staff nurse in Kajang hospital, she attends to the needs of her family with utmost dedication and love.
She is kind and helpful. Whenever a friend, or a friend's friend admitted to hospital, she would unhesitatingly offer her helping hands.
She was in hospital and missed the Mother's day celebration, but surely she is THE mother of the Mother's day!
May God bless her a speedy recovery.
安德鲁 Andrew 本身也有健康的问题。他向我们投诉，在太太住院的一个星期里，他不曾有好睡过。原来他想念太太！（我没告诉他，我的太太即将离我一个半月，到欧洲去！）
