Do you always write notes to your mom? or send a message, or just say I Love You? I don’t. The last note I left for her was when I left the house, and I wrote that I was leaving early for work. Then of course, the note which was printed on the card together with the flowers I sent her last Valentine’s Day.
I am just not sure if the text message I sent a few minutes before I flew to my assignment in Indonesia counts.. You see, I am not always cheesy with my messages to my mom.
|“I am already in the plane. Waiting to fly. Take care.”|
|“Take a rest ma.”|
This Mother’s Day, I thought of blogging about my appreciation of my mom. Mom will always be mom, and her love is the greatest of all the love in the world. It truly defines unconditional love. We heard about stories of mommies working abroad, sacrificing the distance just to provide for their family. I know mommy bloggers who work at home to stay with their kids, and earn extra money to help their hubbies. I read stories in newspapers of moms doing two jobs to give the best for their kids. And there are single moms who play the role of both mom and dad.
My mom may not have worked in another country and spoke a different language. She may not be a mommy blogger who attends events and knows celebrities, but she is also special. It is given that she has provided us good and delicious meals, clothed us literally (yes, she is a dressmaker!), and spent time with us and smiled with us whenever we will stood infront of stage to receive an award. She unknowingly taught us values by being an example to us; like showing us equality by treating me and my siblings fairly. But more than anything, it is the simple things that she does that makes her more special.

|You ran out of shampoo and conditioner, and I already bought for you..|
|She needs to wake up at 5:30PM
Here is your coffee. Drink it now, it might get warm..
|I will do the laundry for you. I already bought fabric conditioner.|
|I did the grocery and I bought you some snacks/chips.|
Those are just little things that make her more special and make her the best mom for me. And here is the letter I wrote for her. It may not make your eyes watery. Making my mom cry is not the intent, I want her to be happy, and laugh, and smile when she reads this. She actually has a different humor too. I just saw this hand sanitizer in my bag, and I remember how my mom gave this to me. She said she has a gift for me, then handed this sanitizer which she got from a pack of soap (Safeguard), for free.
She’s a typical mom who gives and brings home small stuff or pasalubong for her kids. Things as simple as my favorite local chip. She simply reminds us that it really the thought that counts.
I created a video to show my original letter, but I have written the same below. I wrote it in English because I know my mom wants to practice her language skills.
