Indeed, mums are the greatest! No one else epitomizes strength and resilience best than a mother. She can do everything and anything for her children ~ earn a living, do household chores, look after the children, whilst keeping the home spic-and-span and making sure there’s food on the table. Indeed, a mum works tirelessly so she can do these tasks, and more. Her role does not end with the seemingly-endless tasks around the home. Apart from being the designated 24/7 childminder, she is also a playmate, a best friend, a movie buddy, a first teacher or a tutor, a confidante, a storyteller, and a open arms always ready to comfort a child in despair. In my case, she was also my staunchest supporter, the first to believe even when I doubt myself, and the best cook ever!

my Mama on my College graduation

I am blessed with a Mama who did all that and more. Up to this day, it baffles me how she managed to care for all 5 of us whilst taking care of the house and performing other duties. It fills my heart with undying gratitude to have the privilege of being born to a mother who loves her children unconditionally, who will bear all things ~ financial woes and other problems, and later on her sickness ~ whilst sheltering her children from the harsh realities of the real world. She taught us unwavering faith in the Creator and to always choose kindness no matter what. She gives of herself tirelessly, not only to her family, but also to the people in the community. Long after she passed on after falling ill, we will always remember her caring and nurturing ways, her generosity will remain in the people she was able to help in her days, and her love will stay with us for as long as we live and beyond.

From the moment we first opened our eyes, to our first steps, to our first words, and the million other milestones that came after, they were there. At every high and every low of our lives, they have supported us, protected us, and loved us with no question. This Mother’s Day, Orocan celebrates the strength and dependability of all our Nanays, Inas, Moms, and Mamas. Nothing really compares with the TibayNiNanay.
