I slept a little late last night because I always find myself not sleepy when my daughters are already asleep. I’m not sure if some of you are like this but I sneek out of the bedroom to eat some chips while watching movies or some Korean dramas.
This morning, I was awakened by some facebook messages from friends and families with Happy Mother’s day greetings.
I didn’t know that it is Mother’s day. This whole stay-at-home-forever thing makes me forget what day it is. However, this day is a gift for all the women who are blessed to become mothers.
I always celebrate motherhood. I remembered when I was pregnant with my first child, my father told me that I am so blessed because not all women can be a mother. I will be forever grateful to be receiving this gift of motherhood.
My children are planned and prayed for, hence, we, as parents, need to give our best for our children. It is embedded in our veins that we are responsible for them. They deserve good life. Good life does not mean, to be spoiled or to grant all their wishes but for them to be able to adapt in this life. This life that is so unpredictable, yet still needs to enjoy.
The day is about to end here in the Philippines, I saw a lot of social media posts about motherhood. My children and I just had a normal day at home. It’s Sunday today and we had some Bible study. I personally opted not to do a lot of things today. My kids, rode their bicycles around the village (with their masks on), while I was sitting near our garden drinking my favorite cappucino.
Let’s always celebrate motherhood. It is a gift from God that is so precious. The responsibility is so enormous and yet very rewarding.
If you are a mom like me, I wish you a Happy Mother’s day. Enjoy our gift!
