A Birthday Gift Papa Will Never Forget

Let me she share to you something about my mother. And show you how selfless she is.

My mother had a lot of sacrifices for us while we were growing up. And she really made sure that we will be able to finish our studies. Even though it would be hard for her. She really fought for us so that we would grow to be responsible adults and citizens. My mom, one of the best moms in the world.

For her final act, my father's sixtieth birthday was approaching. And she promised that she would give him a very memorable present. She fullfilled that promise yesterday. Her task started around 7:30 am and was completed at around 2:30 in the afternoon.

You see her gift to my father was an unforgettable birthday party. My father will have atleast five days celebration where all the neighbors are invited and she made sure that even our relatives would come. And there will be plenty of food. But she planned a coffee party. So we expect to have coffee, milk, biscuits, and some nuts to fight the sleepiness. Because it was a five day non stop party remember? She also made sure that she was the best dressed. Indeed my mom looks beautiful in her barong and her make up is exquisite. As a testament to her boundless selflessness, the party required she give her life for it to get started.

And she gave it. My mom died, in the year of the Lord, April 8,2009 due to traumatic bleeding in the brain. Because she accidentally slipped and hit her head on the concrete floor.

It's my father's birthday today, April 9, 2009. My mother's body is with us but she is not. We miss her. But don't worry mama. Life happens in a blink of an eye. Next thing you know we will be seeing you again. And you could share with me again your smiling face and your contagious laugh.

Love, Your Son
