We had a Mother's Day celebration at home yesterday. It was a Sunday and as usual, we are busy as we have Church in the afternoon. My husband bought a cake for me. It was my daughter who chose it because she likes the starts and the hearts design on it. :) On it, it says, "Love You Mommy". I was touched. We shared the cake right after lunch.
I love my daughter so much. She is the reason why I am qualified to celebrate Mother's Day. I give her all my love and care. I thank her for making me feel special in every way.
But I will never top how my mother cared and loved us. The things I do for my child is only a bit of what my mother did to us. So it was really her day. I want to post a picture of her here but I cant stop myself from crying looking at some. I'm happy that before she left us, I told her everything - those which are in my heart. I said sorry for the things that I didn't do, for not reaching her expectations, for not returning the love she gave me. I said sorry for not being the best, for sometimes being maldita, for the times I'm disappointing her, for the times I hurt her. I ask forgiveness for the bad things I've done. I told her i love her over and over again and I don't want to loose her. She was still strong that time and she responded with, understanding.
I pray that I will be strong and healthy for my child. That I will be more understanding each day. I pray that I can be a virtuous woman:
Who can find a virtuous woman? She is far more precious than jewels...
Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom, and loving instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the activities of her household and is never idle.
Her sons rise up and call her blessed.
He husband also praises her:
Many women are capable, but you surpass them all!
Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord will be praised.
~Proverbs 31:10, 25-30
