The hands of a wife and a mother

My mom looks 10 years younger if you just look at her in a glance. She moves fast all the time when she's in the kitchen. She likes to do things impulsively and wants it to be done asap. Well, I have the "do it asap" thing in my gene thread for sure. For example, suddenly I have this feeling that I need a haircut. I can't contain myself to go to the barber the next day. I really want it to be done by that night eventhough the fact was that I decided to get a haircut at 12 midnight. The next day I woke up?? "Oh..I think my haircut still looks nice".

Whenever we have a plan to travel be it going to my uncle's house, visiting my brother or having a picnic, Mom would start getting busy. Like "has the laundry done?!!", "what are we gonna prepare for tomorrow?? Are we going to cook or what?", "Fold all the clothes, what are you waiting for?!!", "abang, let's go to the market to buy the instant ketupat and some chicken".

The night before the journey when everyone were sleeping like a solid rock, around 5A.M I would hear a noise from the kitchen. Tung Tang Tung Tang. I would've just ignore it or didn't even hear it. But one early morning, I tried so hard to lift up my eyelids, dragged my feet an trudged slowly with my sleepy eyes towards the kitchen. I sat on the chair and looked at my mum.

My mum was startled. "ngelindur ke?" (ngelindur means sleepwalking). "No lah, want to accompany you. What's for tomorrow. Anything I could help?". I helped Mom a bit and later my elder sister joined us. "Ait?? Such a rare occasion". And I just smiled. I would usually so lazy at home because I have 3 younger sisters. Why don't just let them do the women thingy helping my mom. It's a training for them right. They wanted to get married soon. So, I'm just doing them a favor.

How great a women could be!! A mom could neglect the tasty sleep to wake up early in the morning, cooking and preparing for a journey. There a lots more sacrifices that a mom and a wife could do. That morning I prayed that I would get a good wife like my mom and I promised to myself that I would appreciate each of my wife's kindness and treat her as nice as she should be treated. Husbands out there, please appreciate your wife more. They have done lots of things for you. 

That's why sometimes I would feel so sad when I thought of a man that would never appreciate what his wife has done for him. Like a wise wisdom said, "eventhough my wife talk soooo much, but she treat me nice as a husband, she cook for me, do the laundry, take care of the kids which surely I couldn't do it myself. And for all of that, her talkative mouth is just nothing to be bear with".

itu wisdom words dari Khalifah Umar Al-Khattab bila orang tanya naper dia senyap jer bila isteri dia bising2 mulut. begitu sabar, seorang manusia yang amat ditakuti oleh syaitoon adalah sangat sabar. kalau orang lain, entah2 si bini dah makan penampar or back hand, ek... huhuhu

basically diorang memang buat memacam,
bebenda kecik, bebenda besor,
kita cuma bawak masuk wit dlm umah jer,
yg jadikan nyer hidangan... diorang.

heran, kenapa ceria jer living room...
(Tak perasan ada bunga idup kat atas meja)

heran, kenapa tak der nyamuk yer mlm ni...
(Owh, wife ku dah tukar ambut merah)
hahahahah iklan lama nih yg sunggoh tak relevan

heran, lantai ni cam besh jer nak guling guling,
(Dia dah mop awal lagi)

tp kita.... langsung tak pikir pasal diorang nyer ngomelan:D
