another mother’s day has come to a close… although i think that everyday should be mother’s day! it’s funny that only 1 day out of 365 is dedicated to moms (and dads, too!). my mom is THE greatest – she’s opinionated yet quiet, hard of hearing with selective hearing – which i think i have unfortunately inherited from her, quirky, and cooks WAY more than she really should for every meal – a true filipino mother. a few of the traits that make the day-to-day interactions with my mom either classically entertaining or frustrating to the point i wanna pull my hair out! but, at the end of the day, i love her!
i was reading my live facebook newsfeed this afternoon during my break at work and stumbled upon a post that really stood out to me because it speaks volumes, coming from a place of raw emotion and sincerity – it’s so simple, but can be so difficult for so many of us to do, especially when we get caught up in our own lives:
Everyday should be Mother’s Day because in the blink of an eye, they could be gone. Never miss an opportunity to call, write, hug and kiss her or most importantly, tell her you love her. Never take her for granted and never have regrets. – l.e.t.
tell your mom you love her everday! …take her to lunch, cook dinner every now and then, go for a walk/hike or just grab a cup of coffee! i went to lunch to with my mom last week! it was so simple, and the perfect chance for us to talk and catch up.
i would like to dedicate this post to my mom – she is my strength, my role model. she is selfless, independent, considerate, loving, caring & has given up so much in her life so that her 3 daughters may have a better life than she… although i think my mom has done pretty well for herself! i wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for my mama! when the time comes, and i have my own children, i hope i am as great a mom as she is! love you, mama!
love to all the moms out there! <3
