Last May 6 was my Mama’s 70th birthday …could have been, I mean. I thought of scrapping to give tribute to her. Credits to Studio Flergs and LorieM for the paper and embellishments I used.  Here was my FB post then…

Happy birthday MAMA!
I know, if you were only alive and with us today, you would have been so happy to celebrate your 70th year. I could have granted a great wish of yours or perhaps brought you to a place you’ve never been.

These will no longer happen, but in my heart, I know that you are in bliss! You are in a much happier place than in any place here on Earth and I could never surpass the greatest gift you have now – being with HIM. I LOVE YOU, MA! I am wishing on your behalf now, that somehow, you have never forgotten that, even if we’re no longer together. You know what? It makes me smile when I look at the mirror now and see our resemblance. I would not forget how we make fun and joke about our appearances when I was young and no matter how hard we pick flaws at each other – we end up agreeing we’re both petite and beautiful. There’s a lot more to reminisce Mama, and if it is possible there in heaven to get a free movie on your birthday, hope you’d pick to see our life together.

Remember the kidnapping attempt of a demented woman when I was 3? I am just sooooooo thankful & happy it didn’t succeed – I got to be with my remarkable MAMA. Again, just what I have told you years ago… I would never trade you! You are the BEST mother for me and your granddaughters. We LOVE you so much! Mwah!

And again, with all our hearts – Happy Mother’s Day too!

For me, as a Mother – you have got it all!

1st of May

The month of May has always been special to me. It is but an extra ordinary month since I was a kid. First of May, besides being the Labor Day, is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, our barangay’s patron saint. I have lots of happy “fiesta” memories. Several group of friends at our place would set up parlor games with prizes and there were a few times I took home cash prizes. =)

Besides the feast, May 2 is my Dad’s birthday. May 3 is one of my nephew’s birthday too. He’s someone my Mama and I took care of when he was a baby to his toddler years. Well, he has grown up and grown really tall. Come May 6 is my Mama’s birthday and of course, Mother’s Day is also celebrated during May. Back in Buhi, Camarines Sur (my Mama’s home town), May flower, Town Fiesta and SantaCruzan are also celebrated during this month. Having mentioned that, I have planned to take the kids with me and visit Buhi town at least before June.

Anyways, for the first time, I joined #FMSphotoaday challenge. And I am really gonna try to make it a point to post a photo each day according to the theme or prompt. This is the first time I have joined and I am hopeful too to at least be responsible in posting a photo a day and so as push my creativity a little more to come up with really nice photos.

I was not ready yesterday when I remember that it is the 1st of May so when I learned yesterday’s theme, I took a photo of what was right in front of me.
