Photohunt: Happy Mother's Day


It's Mother's Day! Happy Mother's Day to all moms out there!

Here's my mom, and she's my date last September 5, 2003 at the Manila Hotel. The day I took my oath as a licensed Physical Therapist.


We don't always see eye to eye on a lot of things, but she's always supported me. Yes, sometimes grudgingly, much like Marlin having difficulty seeing Nemo let go of his training wheels. But moms will be moms right?

I remember on the way home, I got a pretty scolding for wearing the lousy shirt I'm wearing. A cotton shirt will never look formal, it will crumple when you move. See mom? I remember what you tell me.

Things like this happen all the time because she loves me, I know that. And I? I definitely love her. I sure wish I say it enough, I don't and now it's sort of awkward to say so without an occasion. (Thank God for Mother's Day right?) I know this is cheesy, and I'm not likely to ever show this to my mom, but it doesn't matter. If I'm to start a blog, I might as well start it right and say the things that really matter to me.

Now I wasn't exactly tagged by Dianne, I sort of saw her post and tagged myself. I think it's a worthy cause and since there is no specific theme for this week I thought I'd go ahead and hit 2 birds in 1 stone. :)

1st Bird: . Just found out about this last night after coming across Aloha Penny's entry and I got intrigued. Now I'm not much of photographer, but it's really quite simple. A theme is given for each Saturday. I just need to post a photo that best represents the theme and voila!

2nd Bird: A Mother's Day meme. Rules are simple: (1) Post a photo of you and your mom together and include “I heart my mom” somewhere. (2) Tag your friends! I'm only tagging a few people: runaway cat, tiffy, cams, maybe arbet, and carney. If you feel like doing this, just go ahead and do what I did, tag yourself!

Here's another one for the road!

Yep, that's the chocolates I'm giving her. (courtesy of my friend Pia--I'm sure you don't object right?)

Thanks for doing the meme! As the saying goes, "Mothers are always right". I want to contest that too, but well.. yeah, they are always right. lol.

Happy mother's day to your mom!

I agree, she appears young!! That's a good thing for her. How sweet to express your love for your Mom, even if she doesn't read it.

@liz: Hey thanks for visiting! Yeah, she's still kinda young, won't turn 44 'til December. About letting her read it... in time I guess. :p

@raein: Yep, thanks for dropping by! :)

@arbet: Thanks! Happy Mother's Day to your mom... boy, you sure look alike.

@joni: No... thank you for starting one. As for they being right all the time, I'm not sure, they're human too after all, but the main thing is they always have the right intention as far as their children's concerned. :)

@-tnchick: Hehe... Now that you know she's just 43, would you still say she appears young? :p

@dianne: You should! It's fun! Happy Mother's Day to your mom! :)
