Celebrating the 70th birthday of my mother

Last May 9, 2018, was the 70th birthday of my mother. Even though my mother died 29 years ago, we still celebrate her birthday every year. It is our way of telling her that she is loved and remembered even if she is no longer with us. Our mother played the important part in our life. Because of her, we grew up responsible human beings. Her teachings are still alive and we are passing it to the next generation of the family. My mother’s absence is our strength to continue with life through her teachings. We missed her like every day of our lives.

On her 70th birthday, I can tell that my mother is happy up there because we are complete. Yes, my older brother with his fiancee and my younger brother with his wife and son did come to celebrate with us. They gave time to come and visit our mother at the cemetery. Also, we brought her grandchildren so my mother can see them. She was not able to be with them because she died early. We brought flowers for her and light candles for her. And cooked the family’s favorite dishes to complete the celebrations.

Mother, I know that you are happy wherever you are. Always know that we love you and you will always be in our hearts. Thank you for everything. Please continue to watch us and guide us every day. Happy birthday mother, we love you and we missed you very much.

Missed the ring of my late mother

When my mother passed away, my father gave to my sister the only ring that my late mother have. It is a ring given to her by my late grandmother. I feel so jealous because I want to have the ring too but my father give it to my older sister. I am a bit angry to my sister but realized that it is not her fault. I just wish that I was born before her so I can have the ring of my mother. Unfortunately, the ring was lost. It was slipped in my sister’s finger. We tried it to find but we are not able too. Anyways, the rings that I saw from this site reminds me of the mother’s ring that was lost. I saw one that is similar to my mother’s ring. Seeing the same ring makes me missed the ring of my late mother. If I have extra I would surely by the ring for myself.

Remembering mom’s birthday

Today is my mother’s birthday. If she is still alive, she is 66th years old now. I so missed my mother very much. Every year we do celebrate her birthday. We are visiting her grave; bring flowers, candle, and foods. Also , we offered a prayer for her. We usually visit her together but today father and two brothers will not be going. My father’s condition is not good; he can’t stand longer and can’t walk longer. The other brother is working and the younger brother is living very far from us. Though they are not going with us, I am pretty sure that my mom is very happy up there because her five grandchildren are visiting her.

Just like the previous years, we will have simple dinner at home. We prepare a plate for her, with her favorite foods. That is how we celebrate and remember mom on her birthday. How we wish she is with us, eating with us and laughing with us. It would be a perfect celebration if she is with us because we will be celebrating her birthday and mother’s day. Anyways, happy birthday mother thanks for the memories. Wherever you are, know that you are always remembered and loved by us.

Visiting the mother’s grave

November 1 and 2 are the days where people commemorates the All Saints and All Souls day. People will go visit their love ones who passed away. And yesterday we visited the mother’s grave. Like the usual, we bring foods at the cemetery and eat lunch there. Having lunch in front of the mother’s grave, feels like we are having lunch with her. Offered prayers and lightning candles. I am pretty sure that my mother is happy wherever she is seeing the whole family spend half day there. Also, some relatives came to visit her grave and the mother’s younger sister. These days are one of the memorable days to me because we get to spend time with the mother. Though her presence is not there, her spirit and love is with us.

Before the sunsets, we left the cemetery. While walking, the brother and his girlfriend suggested to go to the mall. It was a nice idea though since the family seldom go to the mall together. Perfect bonding for the whole family I must say. We had our dinner at the mall. Of course the brother and his girlfriend’s treat. Having dinner at the mall with the whole family is a memorable one. The brother and his girlfriend do treat the family every time they are at the city. The family appreciate it a lot and so touched with this gesture. Every time they are in the city, they see to it that they give some time with the family. Showing that they care and value the family. Thanks to both of you for the treat. May God bless you always!

He wants her to carry him

After the sister learns that she is pregnant, she seldom carry her one year old son because he is a bit heavy. I can attest to that. Sometimes I get so tired carrying him at home or every time we went to the mall or go out. The sister is refraining herself from carrying her son because her condition is not good. She feels like fainting sometimes, vomiting and sometimes her abdomen is aching. She went to the OB and told the OB about the abdomen pain. She was told that her womb is contracting and it is not good for her is she carries heavy things. If possible she would get lots of rest for the first trimester. After that, her condition will be better.

Every time the sister gets home from work, her son is very much excited. He is like running around the house, smiling and even crawling on the floor. I can really tell that he really misses his mother. Unfortunately, his mother cannot carry him like she used to do before she got pregnant. She just give her son a hug and kisses. But seems like he is not contented with that because he wants his mother to carry him. The sister will just said that she cannot carry him for now. And because he is young and cannot understand , he just cry aloud. Poor littler baby. I wish he is old enough to understand. I just carried on his mother’s behalf. haha! Just wait for few more weeks JC and your mother will carry you.
