Almost Mother's Day Thoughts

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

The past years, although I work from home, I am always in front of my laptop or busy with my phone because of my work as a blogger. If not, I am out and about to cover events or attend blog clients or BU meetings. I am also constantly traveling, making the most of what life has to offer!

I am guilty how this packed schedule that I chose sometimes hinders me from replying to texts from my mom. Mom has always been like that, she'll ask how my day was or if "Sinong kasama mo?" whenever I go home late from events and parties.

"May kasama ka ba umuwi?", "Okay, ingat!". I may be 30+ already, but I will always be a baby to my mom. Actually, the older I get the more I appreciate mom's expression of love in the form of pangungulit text messages! ❤

Favorite photo with mom, when we were in Disneyland LA for Christmas 2013! We are both big coffee drinkers in the fam.

Beautiful pictures of mom during Autumn in LA:

With perfect timing, saw this vid on Facebook, sobrang naka relate ako! Very mommy ko to!

Even when I am out of the country, she will be bombarding me with texts like "San kayo nag sstay?", "Kamusta ang pasyal?", "Okay ba ang mga food dyan?" (Coz I'm a vegetarian). With a busy itinerary, I only get to reply to her when I am about to sleep, at the end of the day. But mom never forgets, even while boarding the plane I'll receive a last text from her before I turn off my phone: "Magdasal ha, ingat!".

Solo traveling is all fun and independence and the feeling of freedom, but I don't think it will ever be complete without ending my day updating mom on how my day went. :) Actually, not receiving any messages from her worries me more now, haha! Sanay na sanay na ako. I also make sure to bring home a simple pasalubong, kahit ilang beses na ako nag Korea, because it's mom's kaligayahan. Any packed food or trinket from my trip makes her happy! 

But aside from material things, I promise to make #TimeForMom.
Happy Mother's Day to your moms and to all the mom readers of my blog!
Your unconditional love makes the world go 'round.
