But I still Love to have you around
Woo Hoo! I went for Gwen Stefani last night. My god it was a hugely stressful day. I had to run from one class to another then back home then to the train station. Crap.
Anyway, Gwen was supercool! However, I personally think Beyonce's concert was better because of her singing skills and awesome band. But then again, Gwen made up for it with her enthusiasm, cuteness and her willingness to sing amongst the crowd. Not many Divas will bother running up and down aisles or climbing up rails just so she can interact with her fans. RESPECT!
We were dancing like energizer bunnies everytime her dance songs came on. Yamud over gile plis. Thank god the girls behind us were cool enough to stand up and dance as well. Im pretty sure everyone had a blast judging from the grins on our faces and the hyperness after the show.
My fave part of the show would probably be when she sang 'The Real Thing' and dedicated it to her son. OMG. I was sitting there in the dark listening to her sweet lyrics and I kept imagining her singing it to her son. Yes, I believe by the first chorus I already felt the tears streaming down my face.
I guess I've never really had someone explain to me the love between a mother and her child. I know that it's unconditional, how else can you describe a relationship that replies TLC with soiled diapers and sleepless nights? I think adult relationships are never unconditional even if they are adamant about it being so because all adults have demands and expect something in return even if just a little. :D. Owh and love between adults CAN end but a love for ones own kids will NEVER subside. As gwen puts it, 'and it's not just a phase'.
So this mother-child relationship got through to me by means of Gwen's lyrics. It's quite hard to explain what I felt when I heard it. I just imagined how much mothers loved their kids, right from the day they were born, no matter how tired they are, no matter how much they get pissed off. I wondered if i will feel these same emotions (if not magnified) once I get my own kids, my own 'Love Supply'. :)
Of course I thought of my own mom: remembering her wiping my feverish body with a wet towel in the middle of the night, her hugging me when I couldn't sleep even when she had work in the next 4 hours. All those snapshots of me as a baby in her arms flashing through my head made me tear up even more. *sigh*
I love you loads mom. I realise how hard it is for you to have let me go far away. I know now why it's hard for you to watch me be ungrateful, how much it hurts when someone you love SO SO much break your heart. Im so sorry mom. I never really meant to do so, I hope you understand. Thanks for everything mom, you've always been there for me. Hugs and Kissessssss!!!
