I find it so hard to write this post as my mother is still in coma for almost three years now. The word mother alone brings tears to my eyes. I know many of you reading these lines will relate to this. Please remember that life is so short and it’s important to share your feelings with those who are close to heart, especially your mothers.

If your mom is still alive, you must appreciate her for all she has done for you and take every opportunity to make her feel special in whatever way possible. She is the one who has brought you into this world and given you life, love, and unconditional support.
