Confessions to My Mom — These Millennials Want You to Know...
As soon as people are asked what job they think is the hardest, many would say the same thing: Doctors. Scientists. Teachers. Let’s be honest: Being a Mom is the toughest job in the world (but it’s also the best!) 👍
Moms aren’t just in charge of the overall well-being of their child, they oversee everything. From health, education, values, relationships and everything in between! 😱
Frequently, we become accustomed to the fact that our mothers are always by our side, so much so that we take them for granted. Mothers, who made sacrifices for their children and support them through adulthood. Mothers, who mirror Superheroes without expecting anything in return. Mothers, who continuously inspire you to be a better you ✨
Over the month, many of you shared heartwarming Thank You messages to your Mom in five lines or less, on what you have always wanted to say but never had the courage/too shy to do so. These heartfelt messages are a perfect reminder of what our mothers are willing to give up to see us happy 💓

Thank you for all the sacrifices you have made in raising me and Ah Boy up. You placed 100% trust in everything I do and have always been so supportive. I hope you don't grow old and be with me forever. And, I hope I can give you a tight hug right now but you know I am not the mushy kind. I love you very much, Mom.

To the most beautiful woman in my life, thank you for being my "Rock of Gibraltar" who has always been a pillar of strength and support. Thank you for shaping me to be the strong-willed and independent woman I am today. Most importantly, thank you for always reminding me and continually teaching me that no challenge which life throws our way is difficult to resolve as long as we keep smiling and staying positive. I love you, mum ❤️

Mum, you nurtured my love for books as a young child. Growing up, you taught me how to love others. After marriage, you reminded me to love my wife. And now that I'm a dad, you have been such a supportive grandma. This mother's day, I honour you.

Dear Mum, I've always adored and admired your selfless nature. No doubt you are the most beautiful person in my life inside and out! No matter what, you are always there for me, my biggest motivation and inspiration! You never fail to shower me with your unconditional love, affection and care. You are my first love (always and forever)! My confidante, backbone, best friend and the list goes on! I will always be your proud filial daughter ❤️️
‘I love you’, the three simplest yet hardest words to tell you. Especially, now that I've grown up: It's just like how you don't start the habit when you're young, it's hard to do it when you're older. I know we're not the closest of all, but I really hope we will be, and I will try my best to make our relationship better. Happy Mother's Day, Mummy. Xoxo
