In special occasions such as this, that's when I feel sadness the most. I've been working and living abroad for five years now, and yet no matter what I do, the getting-used-to-it part will never come, I guess.
There will be surprises for her today. And while I am happy that this is going to be unforgettable for her, I feel lonely that I wouldn't be around, yet again, to witness it.
My very own SuperNanay has been the best mother one could ever have. I and my two sisters are a living testament to that. We wouldn't be as beautiful as we are now if given another mother. I know that she is continuously grateful for where we are now. She can claim it as her most priceless investment.
I am here because I know that she wants me to be the best that I can be. She has given me enough trust to know that this is where I want to be. And I am loving her for that.
They say that if you want to see the future you, just look at your mother because she is the perfect reflection of who you're going to be. Looking at my SuperNanay, I can't wait to grow in wisdom and as graceful, and as beautiful as her.
Sometimes, when I feel this kind of sadness, in special occasions such as this, I just think about how proud my SuperNanay is for what I have become. But what she does not know is that, I am even more grateful and proud, that God has given me the perfect mother.
