One fine day, while we were watching TV, Lovable Mum expressed out her latest worry:
ʘ‿ʘ Many people have been taking photos of my flowers recently and giving me compliments. ʘ‿ʘ
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Isn’t it a good thing? People are appreciating your creations. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
ಠ_ಠ I am feeling a little overwhelmed and worried. ಠ_ಠ
¯\_(⊙︿⊙)_/¯ Worry? About what? ¯\_(⊙︿⊙)_/¯
¿ⓧ_ⓧﮌ Getting too much compliments isn’t something great, It might somehow affect me negatively. ¿ⓧ_ⓧﮌ
（ ﾟДﾟ） Ahhh….quite true.（ ﾟДﾟ）
¯\_(⊙︿⊙)_/¯ What should I do then?¯\_(⊙︿⊙)_/¯
Just remain humble and move on.
I totally understand her concern but just like what Shania Twain once said:
“If my clothing does stand out, then I guess it’s a compliment, but I just wear whatever feels comfortable.”
Ever since Lovable Mum started out with her flower arrangement hobby, it added something into her life — a mission and a goal — and she is currently one of the fixed personnels in taking care of the flower arrangements in all our three H.Q.s
As her daughter and her NO.1-FAN, I feel happy to know that more people are acknowledging her skills and creativity; and perhaps this is a great opportunity for her to further polish/cultivate her humbleness at this stage of her life.
The true way to be humble is not to stoop until you are smaller than yourself,
But to stand at your real height against some higher nature that will show you
What the real smallness of your greatness is.

Just last Friday while we were at one of our H.Q.s, a friend asked me to take some photos of Lovable Mum’s latest arrangements which she made during the day before and e-mail them to her.
Hmmm….now, that’s a little creepy…but I guess these are just some carrots and sticks that life throws us at time.¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Since I’ve those photos in my phone, might as well share with you lovely souls:
Have a lovely Friday and a wonderful weekend ahead, always!
Cheers & TTFN~
