Of course, today is not yet the day set to give honor to our mothers. Mother’s day will be on Sunday, May 11, 2008 but I just want to greet my mother, your mothers a “happy Mother’s day!”
To let you know, your mothers might be better than my mother in terms of richness, intelligence, toughness, etc., but I consider my own mother the best mother in the world. You see… I became what I am now because my mother helps me to become like this. My traits are inherited from her, if not, they are influenced directly and indirectly by my mother.
When I abandoned our faith, the Catholic Faith (even if I grew up serving our local parish church as Sacristan Mayor), my mother showed me her disappointment but never abandoned me. We always engage in religious debate (every time we meet) but she never hurt me with her words. My friends and former mates in the Catholic faith consider me a black sheep, but she always looks at me and considers me as good sheep.
My mother is not that rich and couldn’t even support me financially in my activities but she never forget to show me her moral support. She’s always there reminding me on what to do. When I am facing problems, she’s there giving the best of her advices. When I feel sad, she’s there comforting me.
If I will be given by God a chance to wish…. I just want my mother to live longer with the strength and good health…. I also want her to become part of the church where I belong now, for I really want her to be with me, to join me and to be part of my services to the true God and true Christ that I have known through the teachings of the Holy Bible.
I know my mother couldn’t read this post of mine because she doesn’t know what an internet is, but I just hope that she feels what I feel for her. I really love my mother.
Today, April 30, 2008 is the 44th birthday anniversary of my brother Engr. Lorenz Laplana. I know he’s with his family and friends today in PASAR Housing, LIDE, Isabel, Leyte celebrating this special day.
To my brother… Happy Happy Birthday!… and I also want to thank you for financially supporting my college studies… and I am also sorry if I don’t practice the degree that I acquired. I just love to blog than to be an Electrical Engineer. I couldn’t pay you for what you have done through money or cash, but I never forget that I owe part of my life from you.
Again, Happy happy birthday!
