“A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”

                                                                                                                                      – Washington Irving

Mothers are our personal heroes.  It is God’s greatest miracle to beget a life inside a mother’s womb.  Upon conception, a mother’s life is not her own anymore.  But it is to live for her child, a life that’s selfless and benevolent.  They sacrifice a lot for their children, forgetting themselves just for the sake of their precious ones.

Mothers are truly the “ilaw ng tahanan” not just in every home but also in every heart.  They light up our world, guiding us in everything that we do.  They’re the ones who pick us up in times of our downfall.  They give us sound advice and ensure us that everything will be alright.  Without the presence of our moms, we cannot be who we are today.

So as we celebrate Mother’s Day today, we honor our mothers in different ways.  In any way big or small, mothers are always grateful and delighted with our gesture of thanksgiving to them.  Let them feel that they are treasured and loved.  Not just for this day but all the days of our lives.  Happy Mother’s Day to our very beautiful mom, Mama Nita!:)  We love you so much, ma!:)

I may not mention all my friend moms in the world but Happy Mother’s Day also to all of you!  I salute you in deciding to choose a life as a mother!:)

And as for the moment, I’ll just feed myself with an imagination of being a mother.  Because being a mom is not just for those who literally bear children but also for those who are moms at heart!:)
