Happy Birthday, Nanay ☼

Today is my beautiful mom’s birthday, so this is a tribute to her.

Birthday Gift to NANAY: Rose Crucifix for LOLA ROSA from my friend EVIE‘s store, Lovely Gift

You know that saying, If you want to know what a girl will look like when she’s twice her age, look at her mother (or something to that effect)? Well, my mother still looks radiant to this very day, and she’s exactly twice my age, so I’d like to think that when I reach her age, I’ll also look and feel as gorgeous as she does. She is healthy and active, vibrant and enjoying life…

Here are the lessons that my Nanay/Mommy Aya has taught me that I take at face value:

  • Eat breakfast everyday for energy
  • Wear makeup to look presentable
  • Always smile 🙂
  • Don’t cry for any guy because no man is worth your tears
  • Be brave

I admit that I haven’t always followed my mother’s advice, but as her mom, my maternal grandmother, Lola Rosing, told me:

Mothers know best.

And so far, they’ve always been right, even when I didn’t agree. Let’s love our mothers because they gave birth to us and guided us as we grew, and if they’re still around after we’re grown, they don’t stop… Because a mother’s job is never done.

Mahal Kita, Nanay ♥

† GOD Bless Good Moms
