A Mother' s Tribute Tag



I received this tag from Ate Roseand Ate Cecile my dear friend and seniors here at blogosphere-- Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity to give a tribute to my loving Mom-- Mama Julie. ^_^ Forgive me for posting them late--Hoping that it won't bore you to tears for reading my unprivate life ......




My Dear Mama Julie,
I hope that you're in pink of health-- we' re always talking over the phone but I guess it' s been a while I haven' t written a letter to you and now I' m making it an open letter for you to read. I know that you' re not expecting this coz you know me that I' m not that showy towards my feelings. But I' m here giving it a shot!
I was 9 nine years old then when Papa died and Mama Julie took care of me and my two brothers as the head of the family. You worked hard for us to be able to make a living and sent us to school. I adore you for being strong even though that sometimes life to us has been so cruel-- you' re always there, a strong Mama. I know all your sacrifices, patience, and all your advices telling me that it' s for my own good but still going to the wrong path ---I was young then, and always a trouble maker among the family but you' re always there, a forgiving Mama. When I decided to work here in Japan as an entertainer without your consent, you didn' t reply to my letters even after finishing my contract. I was afraid of what would others might think if they know that I' m working in Japan. With our conversations when I went home, you told me that you' re not worried about the humiliations that will cause me but it was that I didn' t dare to think about a mother worrying about her daughter working in a different country. And you cried... Again, I' m sorry.

When I decided to get married, it was you who was worried coz you know that I don' t cook and even when now I' m in Japan, you sent me a lot of cooking book for me to practice. I told you that I' m doing them but not. I' m sorry, I lied. But when we went back to the Philippines and reunited again, I cooked for you what I have known for a bit and then you smiled after you tasted them and told me that you' re proud of me. I' m glad I have seen that smile again in your face!

Mama, I love you so much and I owe to you for what I have in life. Thank you very much for being there for me. I miss you so much!

With Love,
Rizza

I' m tagging every one who wants to give a tribute to their Mom. Happy Blogging!!^_^

Anzu's Mum said...

sana mabasa ng mama mo ito =) so touching kasi, it came from the heart. AKo naman, my mom is just a block from our house hihi kaya di ako maka-emote lol... ALthough I miss my second mom back in PI, yung tita ko who taught me about house chores na ngayon ko lang na-aappreciate. When it comes to cooking naman, dad ko namimiss ko.

Kelan kayo uwi pinas? jya mata ne

Hi Claire, thumbs up ako sa iyo my dear you gave the best shot ever!! We pinoys are not showy to our feelings to our parents we don't even tell them that we love them but now we have to change that course and by this entry of yours your mom will be more prouder of you. Basta ang sa akin lang love your parents like there is no tomorrow galing yan sa akin who doesn't have a parents anymore. Good job my dear. TC!
