Happy mother’s day mama!!!
by Maya, May 14, 2006
I woke up late as always, still bothered by the dilemmas I am faced with. I turned on the television and was suddenly reminded that this day, was a very special day for all mothers. I never once appreciated the joy’s she has imparted in my somewhat turbulent life. That every time she’s around she gave me a moment of stability and calm, through her eyes I see an endless love for her family and a passion so deep it explodes inside her unwavering spirit. 19 years had passed since the day she gave me life. There are times I cant stand her, there are times i cant do with out her, there are times i just don’t care for her. But still she stay to see me through every decision, mistakes and triumphs I’ve tumbled across this path I’ve chosen.
To a very special (meaning; crazy, funny, strict, moody, overly hygienic, caring, loving, lovely, intelligent, strong) woman who’s inner light never withered. I LOVE YOU!!!
HAPPY MOTHER”S DAY MAMA!!!!!! GO GIRL!!!!! MUAH!!!!
Many of you might wonder why I posted the mother’s day message of my son today, Maundy Thursday.
I too wondered about this idea at first but somehow something inspired me. Alam mo yon basta lang there really was something but you have no clear idea what that something really was. (ang gulo ko no?)
Frankly speaking, I am not into some kind of meditation (contemplation or whatever state as you may call it) like most people of faith do during holy week. The simple reason is that I am busy living (other term: working). I need to. I have to because in this part of the world, this day is not special, just another normal working day. In case some of you do not know yet, I am in a country that has different religion not tolerant enough to allow me to practice my faith. You know what I saying here, right?.
And besides, it was time immemorial that my religious life has changed (save my kind of spirituality) and as I grew old (and older, lol), I have forgotten a lot of things that my priest-teachers taught me about religion except for that Liberation Theology idea that they successfully embedded in my brain cells; the reason why I do not like most politicians. Ha ha ha, I must congratulate myself. I successfully written here do not like instead of do hate them. Holy week di ba?
Going back, I think this is the most fitting day to pay tribute to our mothers. If (indeed) on this day Christ was arrested, then this must be the day the Passion of the Mother started.
Can you imagine the anguish, the pain and suffering of a mother seeing her child going through the ordeal of being accused, humiliated, arrested and tried like a criminal and then crucified. How could this happen to a child that she lovingly brought to this world and cared for every seconds of the day from her waking hours to her sleeping time. It surely pained her to the bones. into her soul. A shattering experience that an ordinary normal would not be able to endure.
And to think, this day is just the beginning of her child’s suffering.
Without having to sound stupid or crazy about something that in a way different from the view of many people who are
celebrating observing this occasion, I would just leave this all to you to think, to contemplate or whatever.
So, for everything that my mother went through while raising me, and for my wife who went through a lot raising me as well together with my kids, I would like to say I Love you Moms. Thank you very much.
To all the mother bloggers who I met in the net, melai, neng, bingskee, rhodora, annamanila, niceheart, sexy mom and all the mothers of this world, Thank you so much for loving and raising your children well.
For the kids, I guess this is one the best days to honor your mother. Give them a loving hug, a kiss and a whisper “I love you mom and thank you so much.”
A word of caution though, do not ask for a treat at your favorite coffee store, a trip to the mall for a shopping spree and an additional allowance. The pissibility of not being able to do all that is zero – sarado kasi mga establishments at this time. Ha ha ha.
