Hilal Her

My Beloved Daughter

May 2024

The trials and triumphs of motherhood are not just moments to endure or celebrate; they are the essence of human experience and have a profound impact on the future of society. Mothers navigate the obstacles they encounter and celebrate their triumphs, contributing to the tapestry of fortitude, empathy, and power that characterizes our shared human experience. This article will explore a fictious story line that vividly portrays the feelings and significance of motherhood.
Just a few days after her wedding, in the midst of all the celebrations, Fiza’s mother presented her with a delicate, sophisticated box in a deep black hue. Amidst all the festivities, she was unable to find a moment to open the present. However, a few days after her wedding, she finally had the opportunity to sit down and unveil the contents of the box.
As Fiza lifted the lid of the box, she couldn’t help but be captivated by what she discovered inside. Delicate golden patterns adorned the box, adding an air of elegance to its appearance. Within the box lay a stunning ornament and a petite leather journal. The decoration piece featured an exquisite glass swan with a hidden compartment. However, what caught her attention was the tattered leather diary. She discovered an envelope hidden beneath it. As she opened it, she was delighted to find a letter written in her mother’s familiar handwriting. Curiosity piqued, she began to read it.
My Dear Fiza,
As I sit here, holding my pen, I am overwhelmed by a surge of emotions. My dear daughter, it’s incredible to think about how time has flown by since the day I cradled you in my arms. I was in utter awe of the incredible gift that was blessed upon me by Allah in the form of your life. However, time has a tendency to elude our grasp, doesn’t it? 
I want to express how deeply grateful I am to have the honor of being your mother, my dear. Since the day you came into this world, you have ignited a love within me that is both intense and unconditional. Each smile, every burst of laughter, and every tear have become cherished memories that have left a lasting imprint on my very being. 
However, it hadn’t always been a smooth journey. There have been many restless nights, times of uncertainty and moments of anxiety. At times, I’ve wondered if I’ve done everything I could, if I’ve been the mother you truly deserved. Throughout everything, there has been an enduring love that surpasses all limitations, existing beyond the constraints of time and space. 
There have been times when I’ve been preoccupied with my own concerns and obligations, inadvertently neglecting to give you the attention and time you rightfully deserved. If I had the chance to go back in time and experience those moments again, I would make different choices. However, life doesn’t seem to operate in such a straightforward manner, does it? I can appreciate the moments we have shared and keep them dear to my heart. 
I sincerely hope that you discover immense joy and satisfaction in the future, just as you have enriched my life with happiness and fulfillment. As you embark on this new chapter, rest assured that you have support every step of the way. Regardless of the different paths we may take, rest assured that my love for you will always be steadfast, unchanging, and everlasting. 
With utmost affection,
Mama

Fiza’s heart raced with anticipation as she grew increasingly intrigued by the contents of the leather diary. With a sense of excitement, she carefully picked up the diary and eagerly flipped it open, her heart racing. She carefully perused the pages, her gaze swiftly gliding over the familiar handwriting that graced each page. As she delved into the text, a rush of emotions overcame her. Every word served as a reminder of bygone moments that she had never truly valued until this very moment. 
Her mother vividly described the nights spent holding her close and the days filled with a mix of joy and sorrow. She expressed the difficulties of juggling work and motherhood, and the deep sense of guilt she felt when faced with having to make a choice between the two. One entry read.
I find myself once again sitting down to pen my thoughts in this diary. Today was quite cold and Fiza unfortunately caught a severe cold. She was trembling beneath multiple blankets, her nose appearing red and irritated from frequent blowing. I was completely worn out from all the household chores. However, it was heartbreaking to witness my baby in such a state. However, as the night progressed, her fever began to rise. My poor baby! I carefully assessed her condition, taking her temperature, and administered the necessary medication.
I remained by her side throughout the entire night. However, it proved to be futile. Her temperature escalated to a critical point. I cradled my infant in my embrace and hurriedly made my way to the hospital. Due to the chilly weather, I ensured she was dressed in cozy attire. She held onto me firmly as we made our way through the dimly lit streets. I simply wished for the well being of my baby. After an hour, we arrived at the hospital. The doctor examined her. I was by her side throughout, fervently hoping for my daughter’s recovery…

Fiza’s eyes filled with tears as she read, her heart brimming with love for the woman who had selflessly provided for her. It was astonishing how she had failed to grasp the true extent of her mother’s selflessness and the unwavering power of her affection. As Fiza neared the end of the diary, she was overwhelmed with a deep sense of appreciation. Appreciation for the woman who had raised her, loved her unconditionally, and played a significant role in shaping her into the person that she is today. 
As Fiza closed the diary, memories of her mother’s heartfelt advice the day before her wedding flooded her mind, causing tears to well up in her eyes. She softly murmured, “I appreciate everything you’ve done for me, Mama.” Her voice was barely audible, barely breaking the silence of the room. Immediately, she called her mother’s number and excitedly began sharing her deep emotions, expressing heartfelt gratitude. Her mother attentively listened to her and provided comforting words. She expressed, “No matter where life leads you, you will forever hold a part of me in your heart.” Standing on the cusp of a new chapter in her life, Fiza was aware that her mother’s words would forever resonate within her. Within the black treasure box, she discovered more than just a journal. It was a profound testament to the unwavering strength of a mother’s love.
