Being a Mother is a gift from God, a special gift that God puts into all Moms, a gift to love their kids and protect them even if it meant putting their own life at risk to make sure that there is no danger against their kid's! It is a trust from our Heavenly Father that he puts into every Mother, to look after his own's kids while they live on this earth! -Glen Rambharack

In the picturesque town of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, where lush greenery meets the vibrant hues of family life, resides Patricia, a remarkable woman seamlessly weaving the tapestry of motherhood with the intricate threads of a thriving career. Her life unfolds as a story of resilience, love, and a perpetual balancing act.

As the sun paints the eastern sky with hues of gold, Patricia's day commences with a symphony of activities. The morning chaos, orchestrated by the chatter of five lively children, sets the stage for the day's grand performance.

Breakfast in the household resembles a bustling scene from a family movie. From school uniforms to locating misplaced schoolbooks, Patricia conducts the morning hustle with finesse. Each child, like a unique musical note, contributes to the composition of their daily routine.

With the children off to school, Patricia embarks on her journey to the office. The daily commute becomes more than a physical transition; it's a bridge connecting her roles as a professional and a mother. Through virtual threads, she stays intertwined with the children's lives and attending to school matters.

Arriving at the office, Patricia transforms into a professional, donning the ensemble of meetings, deadlines, and corporate responsibilities. Her desk, adorned with family photos, mirrors the dual roles she effortlessly embraces. In between business calls, she sneaks glances at snapshots of her five reasons for relentless perseverance.

The dance of responsibilities continues as Patricia navigates the professional landscape, seamlessly blending her commitment to career advancement with the nurturing essence of motherhood. Her ability to switch roles, from a corporate decision-maker to a comforting presence for her children, defines the intricate choreography of her life.

As the afternoon sun casts its warmth, Patricia finds moments for reflection. Juggling tasks becomes an art form, and each successful negotiation in the boardroom is mirrored by a sense of accomplishment in managing the household affairs. The interludes offer a brief respite before the bustling symphony resumes.

Evenings unfold as a culinary ballet, where Patricia transforms the kitchen into a stage for culinary creations. Dinner becomes not just a meal but a shared experience. The dining table serves as a venue for discussions, laughter, and the occasional sibling rivalry. Patricia's culinary ability becomes a symbol of her love, expressed in every dish.

The night embraces the household with bedtime sonnets. Patricia, the storyteller, crafts tales that whisk her children away into dreamland. The lullabies she hums become the threads that bind the family's dreams and aspirations. In the quiet of the night, Patricia finds solace in the collective heartbeat of her home.

As the clock ticks towards midnight, Patricia reflects on the day's ups and downs. The challenges may be plentiful, and the nights may be short, but the love that fills her home is the melody that sustains her. The midnight symphony is a tribute to the harmonious blend of work and family, crafted with unwavering dedication.

Patricia's journey as a working mother of five is an ongoing melody, a testament to the strength and determination of the modern woman. Her life story is a portrait of resilience, love, and the perpetual pursuit of balance. In this harmonious tapestry, Maya remains the conductor, orchestrating a life that seamlessly blends the intricacies of both family and career.
