Okay. Where do I start?
I know na hindi ko madalas ipinapakita how much I appreciate you and I don’t even know if these words are enough to describe kung sino ka sa buhay ko at kung paano kita pasasalamatan sa lahat ng mga sacrifices mo para sa akin.
But, here it goes.
Alam kong napapagod ka na.
Tired of waking up in the morning to fix and prepare everything before I start my day. Tired of working and keeping the house in order. Tired of dealing with my behavior lalo na kapag nasasagot kita or naba-balewala.
Tired of juggling everything and wearing different hats every day.
If most of the time you feel like you are not given the recognition you deserve sa hindi mabilang na sacrifices mo para sa akin.
If I disappoint and dishonor you because of my poor choices in life. Kung mas pinipili ko to spend time with other people than be with you.
For all the times na umiinit agad ang ulo ko kapag nagpapatulong ka sa mga simpleng bagay.
Ang dami kong mistakes at pagkukulang.
Yet in the middle of all these, you never stopped loving, caring, forgiving, and praying for me.
I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done for me.
I don’t say this much, but you really are my best friend. You are frank and straightforward pero lahat nang ‘yun for my best and for my protection.
You are my safest place. Ikaw ‘yung security and assurance ko that everything will be just fine as long as kasama kita.
You are my counselor. You give me sound advice and Godly wisdom kapag hindi ko alam ang gagawin.
You are my cheerleader. You never stopped believing in me when no one else did.
You are my defender. Hindi mo hahayaang may umaway sa akin at lagi mong ipinapaalala na magkakampi tayo in life.
You are my role model. You inspire me to be the best version of myself. Who I am now is because of your support and encouragement.
Simply put, I don’t know where I’ll be if not for YOU. No one can help, comfort, motivate, and love me like you do.
You are the strongest, most selfless woman I know.
THANK YOU, Ma.
You are truly one of my biggest blessings. Walang papalit at walang makakapantay sa’yo.
Thank you for EVERYTHING. Mahal na mahal kita.
