I was surprised by my daughter today when I got home. The garage door closed, Theresa ran down from her room, hiding something behind her back and said “Mom, please close your eyes!” When mom Tulip opened her eyes, a beautiful art work appeared in front of her eyes. “This is my gift to say ‘I am sorry’ that I did not went down stair yesterday to hug you and ask how was your day at work right after you got home!”. There is nothing on earth could make mom Tulip happier than this moment. I want to share this happy moment with Moms.
Mẹ Tulip muốn chia sẻ cùng các dì trong Xóm Vắng và các anh chị in Vietnam. Đặc biệt là hai dì Huỳnh Thanh Thúy và Huỳnh Thanh Huyền . Mẹ Tulip vui biết mấy khi con gái của mẹ biết ngoài phục vụ Thiên Chúa (ưu tiên), vùi mài thực hiện ”hai dự án duy nhất đời mẹ” được thành công mỹ mãn trong tương lai, mẹ Tulip còn có cái thú vui đơn độc là: Viết-Nghe Nhạc- Nấu Ăn- và…Phó Nháy… Có hai con của mẹ ủng hộ, mẹ sẽ rất vui và hạnh phúc!!!
“Things that my Mom loves to do when she has a spare time for herself…”
“Beside reading, my mom loves to write. She told me many times that she was ‘born to write, no one can stop her writing except our God!’. My grandma and grandpa supported my mom by sending her to Dalat University in Vietnam for her Bachelor of Arts in Journalism in 1995. My Mom helped me a lots on my writing, plays and musical plays at school!”
“She loves MUSIC. She plays Guitar. She told me thousand of times “Music is the soul of life, the poetry of the air (Richter), without music life would be a mistake (Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche) – Said Theresa.
“My mom loves to cook. I love her cooking, and I am willing to learn her cooking techniques so that I can help her when I turn Sixteen!” – Said Theresa
“Oh, Lord! she loves taking pictures…she made us became her…models. Guess what, I know that my little brother and I still have to do this job for her until she can not hold her camera anymore, well, as it’s impossible to refuse (her…great offer), we grudgingly accepted . The true is…I just want to support my mom on things she enjoys to do to make her happier”- Said Theresa.
