Yesterday was Mother’s day, though I was surprise to learn that some countries celebrated mother’s day on the last Sunday of May, I still felt that the entire world is celebrating with me.
My Facebook wall was flooded with greetings from everyone whom I know cared for me, just as my mobile phone kept beeping with SMS texts to extend their greetings and my Twitter friends tweeted endless tweets of Happy Mother’s Day which made me feel grateful and honored. My kids and I went to my grandmother’s house where most of the clan gather on special occasions and I, in return kissed, hugged and greeted my aunts and cousins. At the end of the day, my mother got these sweet little things:
A pretty red rose from my cousin Malou and Black Forest Ice Cream Cake which I ordered from FUNTASEE CAKES- a cake shop owned and manage by one of my cousins, Kukkhie.
I on the other hand has my own share of surprise. My kids call me “Mama Toshiba” because they know that I will be in front of my Toshiba laptop whenever free time I have aside from finding me reading books. After I had my kids dressed and ready for our visit to my grandmother’s house, I found their little surprise on the top of my laptop that the my son secretly placed while I took a quick shower.
I know it looked like a Valentines Day greeting card but who cares, my children inherit my lack of artistic and creative ability so for them to show their love which they easily expressed in no other way but to draw hearts. After I took pictures , I turned and saw my son standing by the door checking and waiting to see my reaction of their little surprise. He smiled and greeted my shyly and hugging me at the same time. At that moment, I know I got the most important greeting for the day that no Facebook, SMS and Tweets can ever topped. I wouldn’t be greeted with a “Happy Mother’s Day” if not for them in the first place. Just like all other mother who are proud of their mother’s day presents, I am glad and proud too of my own happy little things that comes with hearts!
