She my Mother, I Thank you

She gets up while it is still dark

She provides my needs for food, clothes and shoes

She goes around the houses to curl hair, clean nail and toes

She was raised from poor, but had adream to be rich when get old

She watches over me with her caress, touch and hug

She speaks with wisdom, encouraging me when I fall

She listens on my stubborn youth

She understands when I wanted to be alone

She has no fear, but to stand what she knows what is right

She sings to reminisce her past and laugh while she can

She prays, desire God and extend her hands to the needy

She loves my Father and faithful to the very end

Thank you, because you are my Mother

Thank you, because you raise me within your capacity

Thank you, because we have the same nose

Thank you, because you always remember me to visit in the province while I am studying, while you are working in the city together with Dad

Thank you, because you always give me what I like to makeme happy

Thank you, for the short years I spent time with you

Thank you, because I have two siblings

Thank you, because you love me

Thank you, because you’ve prayed for me everyday

Thank you, because of you, I am a strong woman

Thank you, because of you, I can express what I feel

Thank you, because of you, I will continue to be a loving, caring sister to my siblings

Thank you, because of you, I am a wife who submits and respect my husband

Thank you, because of you, I value and honor my Father

Thank you, because of you, I became a blessing to others who had the same struggles as I do

Thank you, because of you, I hold on to God

You are beautiful, and I thank you because I am beautiful too.

Hi Maeann. Thanks for sharing your beautiful tribute to your mom. I do hope that your husband equally respects, honors and cares for you? Perhaps "submits" isn't the English translation that you're looking for?

Hi Maeann,

What a beautiful tribute to your mother, and such a strong reminder of how much so many mothers do with little recognition of how deeply and completely they love, and how far reaching their messages are in how we learn to love. 

In sisterhood,

Tam

Hi Maeann.

I absolutely love this tribute you wrote to your mother. And my God, she's so beautiful!

Her greatest joy will be to see that you are holding on to the very things that you learned from her and are passing them on to your children and siblings and every other woman you meet. Also, do not forget he when she is old and gray. She will need you the most then.

Please, do write us some more stories.
