Mama's Love

My late Mama was a full-time mother for 26 years. She had the chance to work abroad but chose to stay with us, her 6 children. I never wanted to be a full-time mom, but now I am like Mama. Choosing to care for my kids have given me more accomplishment than when I was working. 

I remember my Mama’s prayers and they have always included for those who needed prayers the most. Her prayers have followed me now that I am a mom. 

Mama's heart is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness. She taught me to forgive even if forgiveness wasn't asked. Mama said that forgiveness is the key to ones peace and happiness.

Mama has a very humanizing effect. She was not afraid to speak her mind but will offer apologies when necessary. 

Mama's love is the fuel that keeps us strong for each other because her heart is a patchwork of love.

Even if Mama has been gone for 22 years, she's the one to whom I hurry when trials heavy and sudden. 

If you still have a mom, call your mother, your nanay, your mommy, you mamu, your inay. Tell her you love her. Ask for forgiveness if there's a need to. There's no better time than now.

I'm the one on Mama's lap
