#3. Mother and daughter
In the musical, it was the 29th of December. CJ Ji-sun spoke over the radio, "Before the end of the year, if you still have something on your mind, you should declare your love. If you have loved someone, confess your love to the full." Then, she spoke out, "Mom, I love you." There is the word, "love." We may not be surprised that she said that. However, how often do we in fact say it? All of us have at times felt too shy to pronounce that word.
Mothers and daughters are on more intimate terms than anybody else. All babies say "Mom" before any other word in their life. In addition, when we are surprised or pleased, the words pour from our lips unconsciously. In fact, they are our true friends. So how about expressing your love to your mother today with redoubled courage?
