Motherhood celebrated

Sunday was pretty special because we were celebrating Mother's Day at home with the in-laws. It was actually a double celebration as hubby's aunt also celebrated her birthday. I felt special not because I received flowers from husband. As a matter of fact, he didn't think of giving me any but it is no reason for me to feel disappointed like I once used to. After all, flowers are not practical gifts because I will have to dispose of them when they rot and wither, anyway. See, I am starting to think like him. LOL. I am happy to say, though, that he took care of our laundry that day without asking me to help out. He also ordered 3 trays of leche flan from mother-in-law. That was clever of him to decide on having leche flan served on Mother's Day because it is also his favorite. :-) Overall, my heart is full of happiness because of the many blessings I have received from God. Motherhood is surely one of my biggest blessings. There may also be trials along the way but they didn't
come without solutions. God is good!

motherhood celebrated simple

Last weekend, I didn't have time to post about Mother's Day celebration. We spent the weekend at our in-laws' place and so we got to celebrate Mother's Day with them. We felt really special that day. It was my first time to taste Tanduay Ice which tasted like a lady's drink. It was good but I only had two shots of it.

What's a little sad about the celebration though was that someone (not a relative) mishandled the box of cake that we bought for mother-in-law. He carried the box of cake like it was just a luggage. Somehow, his intention to help carry our stuff from the car didn't do the cake any justice. I felt a little bad about it because we took the time to go to the mall to buy the cake only to get messed up like that. Anyway, I took the picture from afar and it still looked like a cake after all. :-)

I'm really blessed to have a wonderful mother-in-law who treats me like her own daughter as well.  Oh, how I love all my in-laws!

a cake for mother-in-law

I thought of buying a generic Mother's Day cake for the rest of the mothers in the house (and to greet my own mom  secretly!). This one never got messed up because it was a small one and I carried it myself.

When I think of mother's day, I also think about my dear mom . In fact, I never stopped thinking about her every single day. This is why I'd like to share this picture to my friends and readers one of the last photos we had together before she passed away (barely two months after my wedding).

To my own mom, who will forever be remembered as a mother with the most wonderful and cheerful attitude, thank you for bringing me into this world. Happy Mother's Day, mom! Someday, I'll grow up to be just like you and I will then be proud of me.. :-)

Incidentally, just like Bchai's mother's day post, I also have an old picture of mom. It was her picture with our grandparents, aunts and uncles.

Can you see her in the picture? (Here's a giveaway tip: Look for the one with Chinese-looking eyes..)
