Happy Mothers' Day to all the Mothers in the World

Different countries have different dates honoring Mothers, but most countries, including the US and the Philippines observe Mothers' Day every second Sunday of May. It is going to be a big day for families to be together in greeting the greatest person in the whole Universe---our Mother.

We called our mother Nanay. When Nanay was alive she was the binding force that brought us her children together during special occasions like Christmas and birthdays.

My memory of her would always include that part of her which made people around her laugh. She was funny and continued to be so even when she was already a frail old woman. Nanay joined the Lord at the age of 82 but I have great and pleasant memories of Nanay.

Funny, strong, generous, hardworking, kind-hearted, understanding, sympathetic, loving, caring---almost too good to be true. Nay, we are proud to be your children and we are proud to have a mother like you! We miss you, we love you!

Flowers for you, Nay!
