November 1 and 2 are the days where people commemorates the All Saints and All Souls day. People will go visit their love ones who passed away. And yesterday we visited the mother’s grave. Like the usual, we bring foods at the cemetery and eat lunch there. Having lunch in front of the mother’s grave, feels like we are having lunch with her. Offered prayers and lightning candles. I am pretty sure that my mother is happy wherever she is seeing the whole family spend half day there. Also, some relatives came to visit her grave and the mother’s younger sister. These days are one of the memorable days to me because we get to spend time with the mother. Though her presence is not there, her spirit and love is with us.
Before the sunsets, we left the cemetery. While walking, the brother and his girlfriend suggested to go to the mall. It was a nice idea though since the family seldom go to the mall together. Perfect bonding for the whole family I must say. We had our dinner at the mall. Of course the brother and his girlfriend’s treat. Having dinner at the mall with the whole family is a memorable one. The brother and his girlfriend do treat the family every time they are at the city. The family appreciate it a lot and so touched with this gesture. Every time they are in the city, they see to it that they give some time with the family. Showing that they care and value the family. Thanks to both of you for the treat. May God bless you always!

After the sister learns that she is pregnant, she seldom carry her one year old son because he is a bit heavy. I can attest to that. Sometimes I get so tired carrying him at home or every time we went to the mall or go out. The sister is refraining herself from carrying her son because her condition is not good. She feels like fainting sometimes, vomiting and sometimes her abdomen is aching. She went to the OB and told the OB about the abdomen pain. She was told that her womb is contracting and it is not good for her is she carries heavy things. If possible she would get lots of rest for the first trimester. After that, her condition will be better.
Every time the sister gets home from work, her son is very much excited. He is like running around the house, smiling and even crawling on the floor. I can really tell that he really misses his mother. Unfortunately, his mother cannot carry him like she used to do before she got pregnant. She just give her son a hug and kisses. But seems like he is not contented with that because he wants his mother to carry him. The sister will just said that she cannot carry him for now. And because he is young and cannot understand , he just cry aloud. Poor littler baby. I wish he is old enough to understand. I just carried on his mother’s behalf. haha! Just wait for few more weeks JC and your mother will carry you.

I remember when the mother announced to the people she knows and to the relatives how proud she is. She is so proud because with all the challenges and trials in life, still she is able to send her kids to school because she wants them to become a successful one in the future. The mother sacrifices many things just to make sure her kids are okay. She is the kind of mother that every child would ask for. I can tell that her kids are so lucky to have a mother like her.
Because of the sacrifices her body becomes weak and needs someone to take good care of her, no one is willing to give it to her even the love from her family. Her eldest daughter who is now a teacher, doesn’t even appreciate the sacrifices of her mother back when she was still studying. Now that she is already professional and can support herself, she doesn’t want to look back and give recognition to the person who is responsible for her success. She evens said, her mother doesn’t help her at all. After hearing it, I felt angry to her daughter. The never of her to say it. I want to slap her but opted not to because it is none of my business. The mother just cried and chose not to speak.
To her daughter, if you have time examine yourself and look at yourself without the mother on your side. No matter how successful you are, you will never be happy because you forgot to look back and give thanks to the person who helps you. Remember ” NO MAN IS AN ISLAND”.

Nothing compares the happiness of the mother the moment she finally giving birth after nine months of patiently waiting. Excited to see and carry her baby for the first time on her arms. I have seen in my friends, sister and sister-in-law the happiness in their faces when they finally carried and touched their babies for the first time. I even saw some mothers do cry. Tears of happiness I must say and always kissed their babies.
But what I have seen early this evening in the news is a mother crying because her baby was stolen. I was shocked thinking how bad some people are to steal a baby and so sad to seeing the tears of the mother. Looking at the things she bought for her baby and touching it. She did not able to hug and kiss her baby that long because it was taken away from her from someone she doesn’t even knows. Her reason of doing such bad action is a big question mark to the parents. Though they saw the girl who stole her baby in the CCTV camera, they are still clueless of where the baby is. The police have the sketch of that person already but still do not know where to find her. The tears of the mother will never stop falling until her baby will be under her care. I hope and pray that this will be over soon and that they will finally see her baby soon.
