Letter to Mama

Dear Mama,
We are celebrating Mother’s Day today. These days a mother  gets to receive countless messages from friends on different social media platforms.  You will see posts in FB, Instagram, Twitter, WeChat, and etc how they appreciate and honor their mothers today. It’s good to see that  some will change their profile pic into their moms/nanay/mama. They will post a Skype session photo. Some will treat them to a fancy restaurant or to a simple  cup of ice cream, etc.

I remember you. I never forget you Ma. There is not a single day that I don’t think about you. I still have dreams about you like it seems so real.

Whatever I am today and what I hope will be is all because of you po.

I know that you have loved me and Pot/Shylla unconditionally. I saw how you worked so hard for our family.

It’s still sad though that you weren’t there when I gave birth to MJ and Naomi. You’re not there when I got some really good news about my job.

I hope I am making you proud. You’re not there when when I’m at my rough times. You don’t know how much I wish you’re there to comfort me or to give me advice.
Ma, I love you so much and THANK YOU!

Love,

Chu-chay
