Happy Na, Birthday Pa!

Maligayang Bati! Maligayang Kaarawan!
To a mother and a grandmother!
Lots of best wishes, lots of love
to a wonderful person from heaven above!

Little did she know, little did she see,
how important she is in our lives
how we see her as our hope and our light
to the path we are treding day and night.

To you grandma, we wish the best!
May many more birthdays be your yearly guest
May we be the source of your pride
as you are always ours!


My mom's birthday is always a holiday back home. We used to spend the day and celebrate at Loyola cemetery. Some days were rainy, some days were really hot but all of them fun and fulfilling. It's been our tradition to do so every year. Now that we are in a different place ... the tradition have been tweaked somehow. We still go to the cemetery and pay our respect to our departed loved ones but we can't saty too long. It is cold and it will be a feat to stay warm unless we bring some portable heaters. Now, we celebrate her birthdays at home. This year, I cooked her some pansit, roast chicken and buttered asparagus.

To you mommy.... I thank you for everything that you have done for me and for my children. I love you always!

This is an emotional entry for me. I'm happy that you took the time to write a beautiful poem for your mom. She must be happy if she could read that. I also love her photo with your son & daughter. One happy family. =D
