Mother’s Love?

 

You’ll never know how your mom loves you and care about you deeply…

I will write this in two languages (Bahasa Indonesia and English). Firstly in Bahasa Indonesia which is my own language.

Daun-daun sedang berjatuhan ketika angin menghembus perlahan dari arah timur. Begitu lembut angin membelai dedaunan itu yang menghantar mereka berserakan di atas permukaan tanah dan rerumputan dekat sebuah kotak pos di depan rumahku saat aku mendekati dan memperhatiakan isinya. Eh ternyata ada suarat dari mama. Saya senang luar biasa. Segera saya membacanya. Isinya kurang lebih seperti ini (ringkasannya saja)

Anakku apa kabar? Mama sangat merindukanmu.

Bagaimana dengan musim gugur kali ini? Apakah lebih dingin dari sebelumnya di Canberra atau malah sebaliknya? Mama berharap Melbourne lebih hangat apalagi lokasinya lebih dekat dengan pantai kan?

Semoga belajarmu berjalan lancar dan jangan lupa luangkan waktu untuk istirahat dan refreshing atau olahraga agar tetap sehat. Kesehatan adalah hal utama nak… agar semua aktifitas berjalan sebagaimana mestinya. Mama di sini baik-baik dan di sini kami sedang musim panen padi. Sedangkan di sawah milik kita akan panen minggu depan. Bapamu baik-baik saja dan banyak menghabiskan waktu di sawah dan ladang.

Mama selalu berdoa agar kamu selalu sehat nak. Mama mencintaimu dan sangat merindukanmu. Berharap secepatnya libur dan mengunjungi kami.

Salam, doa dan cinta

Tuhan memberkatimu.

Terima kasih mama atas cinta dan perhatianmu. Saya juga sangat merindukanmu dan sangat-sangat mencintaimu. Salam doa dan rinduku yang utuh.

This is English Version:

The leaves are falling as the wind blows slowly from the east. So soft the wind caressed the leaves that sent them scattered over the surface of the ground and the grass near a mailbox in front of my house as I approached and paid attention to its contents. Wow… there was a letter from my mom. I was so delighted. Immediately I read it. The contents are more or less like this (summarized only)

My son how are you? Mama missed you so much.How about this autumn? Is it colder than before in Canberra or on the contrary? Mama hopes Melbourne is warmer especially if the location is closer to the beach right?

Hopefully your study is alright and do not forget to take time to rest and refreshing or exercise to stay healthy. Health is the main thing … so all activities are running properly. Mama here is fine and here we are rice harvest season. While in our fields we will harvest next week. Your father is fine and spends much time in the rice fields and cornfields.Mama always pray that you are always healthy my son. Mama loves you and really-really misses you. I hope you will be have a holiday soon and visit us.

Greetings, prayers and love, 

God Bless.

Thank you mama for your love and care. I miss you very much and love you very much. Greetings, prayers and unending longing…
