Reflection, before 31

  • Inspirations

We will never know the love of our parents for us till we have become parents.

It’s true..

For me, personally, I will be more specific. I will never know the true power of a mother’s love until I become a mother myself.

Mother. As I was growing up, my mom always said that I am her universe. That her world evolves around me. I am the reason for her to live. Even more, when she was diagnosed with cancer stadium 3B.
So yes, after having Aaron, I know the meaning of what my mom’s was saying.


I wish I had more pictures of me growing up, pictures of me and my mom and my dad.


I know now, most things are forgotten over time. Those memories I had with my mom & dad, now vaguely stays in my mind. Those memories are better than diamonds; no body can steal it from, except time. How I wish I had those memories in pictures.


Now, as I have my own child, I try my best to make good memories, happy ones with him.


I don’t want to caught up with our every day lives that events of the past.. our memories.. will end up like ancient stars that have burned out, are no longer in orbit around our minds.
There are just too many things we have to think about every day, too many new things we have to learn, new styles, new information, and new technology.

But I don’t want time to pass by and we as family don’t have something to look back with smile.


Because family is what you make of it. It is made strong by the rituals you help to create the memories you share, the commitment of time, caring and love you show to one another.
For me, photo is not just a picture, but it is about keeping all the good memories.

Not only for me as a parent, but also for my baby Aaron (believe me you will surprise how fast your child grow up 🙂).

Think 20+ years down the road. I’m sure we all enjoy looking at our own baby pictures, but as an adult, don’t those pictures have more sentiment if they describe every precious moments or milestone of our baby?
When Aaron becomes an adult, I’m sure he will appreciate seeing himself and all of the memories.

And I will continue, keeping those memories in pictures, so when I’m not around, Aaron’s memories of me will be my greatest accomplishment. His memories will be my most lasting impressions.

warm hugs,
