Today is for my Mother, tomorrow is for my Motherland.

Today is for my Mother.

A mother understands what a child does not say. - Jewish Proverb

To my Mama, Happy Mother's Day! Words are not enough to tell you how grateful I am that God made me your daughter. Thank you for your unconditional love and unwavering support. Thank you for the thick, black hair genes. Thank you for sending me to the schools I've been to, causing me to meet the awesome people I've met. Thank you for the shopping trips and the haggling tips. Thank you for waking up very early to prepare my breakfast when I was still studying, and even now that I am already working. Thank you for cooking my favorites whenever I go home on my rest days. And even though I know it was hard for you, thank you for letting me rent my own place so I can learn how to stand on my own two high-heeled feet. These are just some of the things I am thankful to you for, and I can exhaust all the words in my vocabulary, but they still will not be enough to tell you how much I love you. I love you Ma. :)

Tomorrow is for my Motherland.

It says "Politics is showbiz for ugly people" at the back
This was quoted by DJ Mo Twister at my favorite morning radio show, Good Times with Mo

Tomorrow, Filipinos will take to the polling booths to decide the future of the Philippines for at least the next six years. (Click here for the National Candidates' Profiles.) I am not proud to say that this election is filled with too many controversies and lots of mudslinging on the candidates' parts. Hopefully we will have a peaceful and honest election tomorrow.

I was over the fence for quite a while but I finally decided who to vote for this weekend. I go for Dick Gordon! I have actually liked him from when I was still young and he was still running for a Senatorial position. I believe in his platforms and his plans for the Philippines. He is competent, intelligent, and genuinely nice. Whoever the majority of the nation will choose though, I hope that he would be able to lead us well and restore the country to its former glory and erase the government's bad reputation as one of the most corrupt in the world.

To my fellow Filipinos, please take the time tonight to really decide on who your heart, mind and conscience are telling you to vote for. More than anyone else, you are voting not only for yourselves, but your future and future child/ren as well.

Mabuhay ang mga Ina!
Mabuhay ang Pilipinas!

Your mom is lucky to have you as a daughter! Sweet letter :)

Politics are so dirty now-a-days. Nothings fair or nice, sadly.

Have a wonderful day!

Aww, so sweet ... I love that paragraph you wrote for your Ma. And I hope the election goes well! It's a shame where they get overrun with controversies, but may the best person win, right? :D

That is a wonderful tribute to your mom, Krissy! I hope she reads it. It's great to see how much you appreciate her.

One of my mom's sisters passed away Friday...I went to the funeral home yesterday to pay my respects. The family was projecting pictures on the wall and some of them were of my mom. So Mother's Day was a double reminder of how much I miss her.
