A gift of life

25 years ago, in a very misserable time, my mom gave birth to me while she was struggling against the typhoid desease. "The feeling was like between life and death," My mom said. Beside, my father was not around. He was on duty in East Timor.

I felt so guilty to my mom, ever since before I was born. I can't imagine how difficult it was, supposed to be under intensive medication, but can only take vitamins instead - not to risk me, of course. Consequently, this slower down her recovery from the disease.

Mom, I never want any presents from you, as you have given me the biggest present in my life - A gift of life.
