Thankful Thursday -Mother


Today, the thankful ladies are talking about Mothers, of course this is because it's mother's day on Sunday and It is but fitting to have one dedicated thankful topic for them. Thank you Lynn for hosting again this month.

I am not a mom yet as you all know, we are still praying and hoping for that. But I want to share with you how thankful I am for my mom, here in my side of the world we call her "NANAY".

NANAY is turning 70 this October and I'm hoping we can give her a beautiful birthday party,she never had parties before but since she is reaching 70 I think we should have a big celebration for that. After all..very few are blessed to have reach such age.

Being the youngest in the family, I had a hard time separating from my NANAY, I remember still sleeping besides them when I was already like 12 years old. And even when I was in college and I had to stay in a boarding house, I would often go home on weekdays because I just can't live apart from my parents.

She's so hardworking, she worked really hard to give us good life. She worked harder to send us to school. And even now at her old age, she take care of her grandchild and loved to help us.

She instilled in me moral values that I would also love to instill to my future children, My parents taught us to respect people,she taught us to love and support the family whatever situation we maybe into.

I hope I can be with her this sunday but even If I can't, I'm sure she knows how important she is to me and to my siblings. I used to give her cakes on Mothers day but this year I wish I could bring her somewhere, I would want to give her a vacation before maybe I can't afford an out of the country trip like an Outer Banks vacation right now (but I'm praying for that too and I know there is no impossible with our God) I wish I could bring her to the beautiful places in our country too. She love the beach, i remember we used to spend a summer outing as family when we were still kids.

I love you Nanay! and I miss you so much!

Great Nanay, thanks for the reminder. Here in Thailand, mother's day celebration is on a different date and month. I remember my Nanay too in Bacolod city, Phil.

What a wonderful tribute to your Mom! Someday you will be able to pass down those same great things to a child of your own. :)
