To all mothers: This is for you... for us...

 "You realize that you habitually thought of Mom when something in your life was not going well, because when you thought of her it was as though something got back on track, and you felt re-energized.”

 ~Please Look After Mom~

"I hate her!"

That was the line I had in my mind when I was a kid. I used to hate her. I felt she's trying to empower my existence as an individual human being. I was not allowed to do this and that. I had my first official boyfriend when I was in 2nd year college. Not allowed to butt in when she's talking. I couldn't break her rules. I couldn't even say no. Dictated every move I should make. I really couldn't understand her. I was crying in my room every night. I really really couldn't get her point not until I grew up to be a woman. Now, I perfectly understand her. She molded me to be not just a woman but as a strong-minded, unconstrained and a sensible lady. I am here because of her. She's my strength and my weakness. She's my best friend. She's my life!
Mama, you never leave me alone. I am truly grateful that He gave me you.
From your family, everyday is Mother's Day!

Note: Aya's FB post, so touching that it made me cry. (sorry for being such a hovering-BS-kind-of-mom...)

Happy Mother's Day

There's never a day goes by na hindi ko naalala ang nanay ko sa tanda kong ito. But we've just got to move on and deal with what is ahead of us, more importantly to do our role as mothers. If I will compare my kids to the younger me then...I am in no match. I wonder how life would be had they been hardheaded or ballistic like me before...always wanting to prove my point. Yes I got some petty issues before with my mother that I thought was so big...if life can be rewinded, I probably would deal with it not the way I did that usually makes her broken-hearted   (...cue music)

To my NANAY, I know you are just watching over us...and am sure you are proud of me because I raised your grands much better than my person... and I will do the same for your future greats. I love you nanay... for giving me life and for raising a strong person that I am today... <3 p="">
