Dear Mom

I used to right you letters when I was under 4ft tall, I wish I had written more, but I hope it is not too late to say:

I’m sorry

During my teenager years, you cried in pain, hurting because of the words I have said, the actions I did and the things I did not do. I should have said you don’t need to work, mom, when you were sick, but all you thought was making ends meet together with dad. I should have apologized for my behaviour, instead of building a great wall. Mom, it pains me how I treated you with less respect, I’m sorry.

Thank You

I do not know how you were able to balance work, studying another degree, fulfulling your social responsibilities and taking care of us. I will always be grateful God gifted me with you, dad and my brothers.

Mom, thank you for the pizza 🙂 Remember when I said that you should treat me when I finally pass that IELTS test? I came home devastated because I failed again for the 2nd time. To my surprise, there you were smiling, arms wide open with a delicious pizza on the dinner table. You never stopped believing in me, reminding me to keep praying and believing, which is why I went to sit the test again, and then finally passing with high marks. Thank you mom.

I Love You

I miss all things about you mom, your antics and your quirks, your voice and your hugs. Mom, thanks for loving me despite of how I was weird and difficult growing up. Thanks for accepting me despite of the mistakes and continously praying for us. I take pride always that you are my mom and value everything that you and dad have done for our family.

I love you mom, always and forever.

This cause was inspired by a young lad, Abner A. Ibag, who has passed away after 18 precious years of existence. He has left a legacy of positivity and have become an inspiration to his family circle, friends and his acquaintances; a beaming beacon who has shared selfless acts of kindness, emanating an aura of joy with a contagious spirit of bringing smiles and laughter. Continuing this feat, from a period of hiatus, I aspire to continue sharing a heart of caring through social media- with stories and encouraging updates, and connecting people with the same mindset. Everyday stresses may become overwhelming, but know that you are not alone going through this. Would you like to join us? Feel free to send us your messages, inquiries and suggestions.
