me + mama on my very 1st birthday

In Memoriam

Adoracion De Leon Parungao

{25 October 1949 – 03 February 2007}

My Mama would’ve been 62 years old today + if she were alive I’d probably tag her along to watch that much-raved-about film of Anne Curtis, she will probably enjoy it! Or treat her out to eat her favorite Lomi + halo-halo. I bet she will love it. She is all so easy to please, you see.

I would never know for sure how our lives would turn out if Mama did not leave us for good that fateful day of February, 4 years ago {it was my sister Isabel’s birthday}.  But one thing I will know for sure, our lives had never been the same since then. Special occasions like birthdays and Christmases seem to  lack in color + festivities. Our hearts, simply void in one spot, never to be filled again.

What I am today as a mum, I owe it all to my own mother.  She taught me valuable things about life, about giving + about putting your trust in our Maker. She led a very simple life, but a full life, nonetheless, always open + ready to help all those who are in need.

Somehow, I hope I make her proud in my little achievements + hopefully I can become the mother that she was to my own child.

Ma, I know you are smiling down on us. You + Papa are probably keeping watch all the time. I know you are in a much better place now. Know that we love you so much. Enjoy your birthday up there…until we meet again…

Spread the love
