“When I look upon your face, I see a gentle smile of ages past, I see a simple smile, a mother’s care, a mother’s stare, a mother’s special kind of love…”
I am the kind of person who doesn’t know how to express himself personally so I took this opportunity to write down my thoughts through this blog…
First of all, Happy Birthday, Nanay! Words are not enough to wholly express how much I love you, how much I appreciate all the love and care you have shown me. I cannot thank you enough for not giving up on me in spite of everything. I know I already owe you so much. You provided for everything and I couldn’t ask for more. The love and care you have shown over the years is beyond comparable.
I am sorry for what I have done, for everything, for all my shortcomings. I am very sorry I failed you and Inang. I am very sorry for not being the son you always wanted me to be. The life that you’ve always imagined and dreamed of for me is far different from what and where I am now. The fact that I might not be able to give back breaks my heart and makes me realize sometimes that I am a total failure.
In spite of all the pains that I’ve caused you, you have always been at my side, guiding me in every step of the way, helping me to mend the broken pieces, and never stopped showing me greater love, selfless and unconditional love, a true mother’s love.
I am truly blessed you are my mother!
I wish you all the best and may God bless you more! I love you, Nanay! Happy Birthday!
