Today is the 64th birthday of my late mother. Although she is no longer with us, still we do celebrates her special day by visiting her at the cemetery and have a little feast at home. We believe that she is still with us that is why we do celebrates her birthday and counting her age. Every time her birthday comes, I felt sad because it reminds me of her and her teachings. My mother did taught us good values and taught s to become a better person. What I am now is because of my mother. Her absence at home was a big lost for the family, however, looking at the good things she has left for us made us decide to go on with love and move forward.
We went to the cemetery with the kids. When we arrived the kids did greet their grandmother a very happy birthday. They helped me cleaning the grave and pulling out the grasses that grows beside her tomb. I so missed my mother and always wish she is with us. I spoke to her about our travel and asked her blessings and guidance while we are traveling. I felt sorry she that will not going with us but thinking she is always with us feels good.
Happy birthday mother and I wish you were here with us. Wherever you are, you will always remembered and loved by us.
