Just like any mother, she gave everything and worked hard for us. She worked abroad for seven years and I knew the feeling of that long painful years to be away from her children. I am a mother and I know what it felt like to be away even for single moment with my children.
I remembered her saying this to us where she only wished for very simple thing. She wants to go shopping, do groceries with cart full of goodies and cook food for us. It was a a very simple wish but that simple wish didn't even happen once. Sad.
I miss those days when we were rushing to go home from school and we're all in hungry mouth with whatever snack she cooked for us, hotcake, ginatan, bibingka or palitaw.
Thank your mom today for the life that she gave, for all her sacrifices and for everything that she did. Give your mom a hug today, a kiss, shower her with love.
I do miss my mother terribly and it's been 17 years. I miss her so much. yes.. so much!
