Now this is the post I had planned on writing about last Monday since it was a holiday here in the Philippines. However, I got caught up with other things—the National and Local Elections and I had to finish working on our missalette for the wedding.
For this year’s Mother’s Day celebration, we had lunch at SamboKojin, along with my future parents-in-law. Since Miggy and I are nearing six-months-wedding-countdown, our topic over lunch is everything wedding-related. I can tell both families are excited about the much-anticipated event of the year.
It’s a shame, though, that I was not able to get Mom a personalized gift nor a simple birthday card this year. I don’t want to justify my reasons, but it’s pretty evident why. It’s sad that I failed to exert more effort into making Mom special on this day. I’ll make it up to her on Father’s Day, perhaps?
Mom is my official Mommy-ger. She’s a hands-on mother (and wife) to her family. I admire her for she did (and continues to do) great with her role. I look up to her so much that I want to be as amazing of a wife and mother to my future husband and children as she already is.
Soon, I will be opening another chapter of my life as a married woman, and I wish that I make her proud for I will be a reflection of her love and dedication to her family. If I can’t be like her, I will, at least, try to become the best person that she ever hoped and prayed for.
No words can express nor define how much we are grateful for you, Mom. We are truly blessed to have you as our mother. I love you, Mom. Always and forever.
P.S. Please excuse Mom’s muffin top. She just finished a plate full of grilled goodness, plus she had all three of us, remember? Don’t judge her. She’s working on getting back in shape for my wedding. 🙂
