"Honestly, if I can ask for one thing, it's to have my own dedicated craft room or perhaps a customized beading table where I can hide all my supplies without having to clear my current dining table workspace every single day, when it's time for a meal. But for now, I will be more than happy to settle for a phone upgrade. This is as materialistic as I can get!"

"What I really want for this mothers' day is, everyone at home to be on automatic mode - I don't need to be nagging or reminding anyone at home to get what needs to be done."

"I'm still sleep deprived as the whole gang snores, gnash teeth and I literally wake 10times a nite to make sure all blankies are covering exposed tummies.... someone didn't sleep on the cat. So yes, sleep is good."

"What I want - is also what every mom wants. For the kids to be happy and healthy. That's the best gift to me. They happy I happy. They healthy I lagi happier. No need make cards lavish dinners, gifts etc."
Jacquelene Pang, mum of 2, Sowing Seeds of L0ve
"I want half a day to myself. Eat, shop, stone, whatever, without the 'village' & the husband cannot call/text me to check on me. I went to the polyclinic on my own 1 time and he called to check my whereabouts. He pretended to ask in jest but I know he was panicking at home. I ended up cutting short my alone time at Compasspoint and bought lunch for everyone. So anti climax... I was beginning to enjoy myself at the Value store...."
Liza Poh, mum of 2, http://motherof.xander.sg/
"Seriously I would be happy with a real big hug and kiss from the boy and a day with no tantrums."

So, there you have it! What mums truly want - Mother's Day is not just about a meal or flowers. For most of these mums, it's a simple chilled out "me moment". :) As for me, I have been having some really rough personal issues lately and I wish for peace, protection and basically for the family to be well. I pray that God will continue to watch over us. If you can, please keep my family in your prayers and that would be the best gift for me. :) Here's wishing all you great mothers out there:
