Today, the world celebrates moms and the good things they’ve done! What a chaotic world would it be without mothers? Aside from our biological moms, we also have aunts, godmothers and spiritual mothers who are dear to us – let them know you care and that you wish them well.
There were times in the past that I made my mother cry because of disobedience. One night, she told me to go to the room so we could talk and while we were inside, I saw my mother weep because of me. To what reason? I do not recall anymore – all I know now is that it was because of my nasty attitude. She asked me what she needed to do so I would change. At that time, I was not sorry for what I did. There was guilt but I did not see her pain enough to even say “sorry”. To me, it felt like she was just trying to get sympathy.
And although I have already apologized to Nanay repeatedly, I wish I could turn back the time and just hug her tight that night. I bet it would have lessened the pain she felt.
Looking at it now, I cannot believe how hard-hearted I was at that time. And although I have already apologized to Nanay repeatedly, I wish I could turn back the time and just hug her tight that night. I bet it would have lessened the pain she felt.
Our parents, not just our moms went through a lot of trials and hardships just to raise us into who we are now. If there’s one thing I can tell the younger generation now, it is to be kind to their parents. You may have heard others say, “I just truly realize how great my parents’ love is now that I become a parent myself”. That is true – that was one of my realizations in life too. But if possible, don’t wait for that day, as sometimes, that day might be too late already.
Wherever you are now, remember your parents. If they’re anywhere near, give them hugs and kisses. If they are miles away, grab that phone and give them a call. They don’t need expensive gifts, even a simple, “I love you” means a lot to them.
