I have two moms, one is my real-biological mom and the other is my one-and-only-godmother (ninang).
They are best friends, my ninang took care of me since day 1 (my mom is clueless at that time) and she had to work. When we had to transfer to the province when I was in HS she really had a hard time coping up, she would cry a lot, her son even said to her “sya lang ba anak mo?” That’s how she loved me and I do love her too (my mom knows that!). I continued to visit them but you know along the way something always comes up. And now that I am working abroad, I try to visit her every time I came home for vacation.
During these last years she had a lot of health complications and the latest was her thyroid operation didn’t work out that fine. I am really afraid I might not be able to see her on my next vacation which is on December.
We are open to the inevitable, we do not wish for her to suffer more but still I want to be a little selfish.
And here comes my wish:
I wish to see her again, to hug her, to thank her, to listen to her stories on my growing up years…
I wish to greet her HAPPY MOTHERS DAY for more years to come.
