Today is the 22nd day of April in the Philippines and is the natal day of my dear mother. She turns 53 this year, another year older and wiser. Oh my mother is not getting any younger. Wishfully, she'll stay longer that she could see us, her kids, grow more.
Meanwhile, I just happen to give her a phone call about five minutes ago to greet her a very happy birthday and for a 'lil chit chat. Mamang's voice sounds so happy. I asked for an apology because I have nothing to give her this year. The supposed to be her gift was given to my brother who's in need the other day. It's fine with her and said that I have given her enough. She's thankful that her birthday is remembered. She even laughed when I told her I have tons of pasalubongs for her and that she's gonna like it much.
It's been three long years since I saw her personally. This coming May, we will be reunited for weeks and will be apart afterwards but that doesn't mean we will live in solitude. Our hearts will forever be bonded.
I will see you soon, Mang. I love you.
