My daughters and I, we are so extremely lucky to have a Nana like Mom. My Mom, she has the biggest heart in the whole wide world. Last night, she cooked us a dinner of baked pasta filled with lots of mincy beef, tomatoes, bechamel and cheese…..it was Heaven. With that we had juicy ribbed-eye steak on the side, perfectly grilled potato wedges, buttered asparagus. I had doubles and was so full but the food was just too good not to have doubles! Then we celebrated T2’s 3rd month birthday with tons of cake. That is the life.
Mom has been fighting cancer for 7 years now – gosh, has it been that long?! What a fighter! I am so incredibly proud of her strength that she has stuck up for us, her children and grandchildren, to fight this killer disease. I know for a fact that the only reason she has this will to live is because of her overwhelming love for us. And for that we are so grateful. What would we all do without Mom?
Mom, who always has a solution to all our questions and problems. Mom, who can tell any of us telling a lie from here to England and back. Just because she doesn’t say anything to us doesn’t mean she doesn’t know. Mom, who would give up anything just so we could have whatever it is that she knows makes us happy. Mom, who takes the time to cut-out years worth of recipes from magazines and files them in categories so we could have yet another family heirloom. Mom, who would fight tooth and nail, never mind if you’re ten times larger, richer or more powerful than her, to defend her family in any circumstance from harm and hurt. She is THAT loyal. Mom, who never fails to give to any of the less fortunate, even if it is just that stranger on the hospital bench looking destitute. Mom, who has sacrificed so, so, soooooooo much for her family in so many ways that we’ve lost count. Mom, who can smell a rat several miles away and knows when we are mixing with someone who isn’t good for us. And guess what? She has been right EVERY step of the way. Her intuition is amazing, at the risk of making an understatement. Mom, who has garnered so much worldly experience in life that she REALLY knows the solution to all our problems. Mom, who has set us a benchmark that we could never live up to…….
What do you do with a Mom like that?
Love her to the end of this world, eternity, and take her for lots more family holidays!
Perth, London, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Melbourne, Paris, Bali, here we come!**************************************************************************
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
