HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY MOM

I know there are some of you who will still remember my Mom, and some have heard enough about her to know her by now.

I know there are some of you who will still remember my Mom, and some have heard enough about her to know her by now.

According to her, she’d lived a great life.

She was most little children’s best friend, especially her grandchildren Ozlem, Gizem and Deniz were the lucky ones. Nurten, Nurcan, Gülnur and Can were the ones brought up missing out but still hearing about her.

She was a very good journalist, an example to me and many others.

She was a painter. With nine solo exhibitions she proved her talent and was an appreciated painter.

She was always there for the needy. She regularly visited orphanages and old people’s homes.

She was a great wife who stood beside her husband, our late father Ilhan Cevik, in all circumstances.

She was a great mother and passed her good values to us. Who taught my brother and me to be human and to respect the young as much as the older people.

She was a very strong character.

She beat cancer twice in 16 years back when it was a taboo subject. That was when people didn’t even want to mention the word “cancer.”

She was one of those who enjoyed smoking and had an open-heart surgery only on the condition that she could smoke freely. (This was a deal made with world-famous heart surgeon Dr. Michael Debakey before the surgery.)
Then one day she fell in the kitchen and hit the back of her head. None of us (including her doctor) thought it was anything serious.

She looked fine. Talked with us, joked about falling down and we all laughed. Then we let her sleep so she could pull herself together. After all, she’d had an accident.

Well, none of us realized she’d had a brain hemorrhage, so that was it.

Nor could any of us or anybody else who knew her could believe it when she decided to leave for her new journey.

It was just like a joke, but she did.

She was our mother. Our best friend. Our tutor.

Well, Mom since you left 22 years ago lots have changed. You have four more grandchildren and two of them have their own babies.

Your dear husband, our Dad must have joined you so we also miss him terribly too.

Now I have an independent website dedicated to you and to Dad. And I try my best to make it up to your standards.

There hasn’t been a day go by when we haven’t remembered you. There hasn’t been a day when we haven’t recalled your memory. And there hasn’t been a day when we didn’t miss you.

Now once again its Mother’s Day and wherever you turn you are reminded by it. Of course I know what a special day it is but Mom although I am blessed with two children of my own this is the hardest time of the year.
Knowing your mother is not there, you can’t call her… you can’t buy her presents… and worst of all you cannot spend an hour talking to her on the phone.

But Mom of course we continue and Mom, I haven’t forgotten that life is too short and “tomorrow may never come.”

And Mom,

I am wishing you a happy mother’s day the best way I know…. I love you!

Until next week keep cool and healthy!
