My mind now is so relaxed. It’s actually just blank in meditation mode. My fingers nervously tickle the keyboard as I ponder about what to write. Since I am often guided by simplicity, I choose to simply greet mothers worldwide first and foremost, “Happy Mother’s Day!”
During the church service today, the pastor asked all mothers to stand. We recognized them and said our prayers of thanks for being such wonderful and loving mothers. When I saw some children hug their moms, I can’t help but feel touched. I got teary-eyed and thought of Mommy.
I bought her a gift yesterday and have it sent through Achi Kathy’s mom and aunt who both flew back to the Philippines this morning. I hope she receives it well soon. I also sent her an international SMS to remind her of the package and of my love for her. She replied back and exchanged words of gratitude.
To the one person I can tell my soul to, who can relate to me like no other, who I can laugh with to no extent, who I can actually cry to when times are tough, who can help me get through the problems in my life, this one goes for you.
Mommy, B (nick name) or Achi Kawlasya (play name), thank you very much for you’ve never turned your back on me. I love you for countless reasons.
Thanks for listening to my senseless banter even when you’ve had a long hard day. You have gone through so much stresses and hardship on your own, and you still have time for me, for us, your family.
I love you for listening even when you’re dying inside. I
love you for laughing at our stupid jokes which go around like circles.
To this day and to forevermore, I look up to you because you’re strong, stronger than any other—and beautiful, even though you don’t think you are. I hope you know that I’m always here to listen to you, laugh and cry and help in all the ways that I can. I hope you know I would not be the person I am today without you.
Thanks for being someone who has always believed in me, who has always understood, who has always accepted me, who has always cared.
I love you always. We both know that, but it’s something I have to say anyway. ♥
