Around the World : Mothers Will Always be the Best
Mother's Day 2007
If you look at my smile whenever I'm with mama - it's always pure unadulterated joy. Happiness is always around even if it means stepping down the car a few hundred paces away from the Palace in the Sky in Tagaytay because she was never a fan of high places, or her relative obsession to using spraynet in Paris when I asked her to leave it prior to boarding our plane because it was made of aerosol.
If Paparazzi was a born comic, then Mama is a natural lover of fun. Not even minding if it was at her expense. That's surely their secret to staying this long. Giving and compassionate, she would allow to be the subject of our bantering and jovial conversations. She would just smile and sometimes have the loudest laugh at her self. Much like Mother Lily "Monteyverdey" calling up "Cebu 3-2".
How can one not be happy with and around the woman we love the longest?
I wish to send a warm embrace across the miles to her and a greeting to all the mothers in the world, today, your day.
Everyday you never cease to make me smile when I think of your presence even from this far away - you light up my world, Ma!
