From Our Readers: "Thank You for the Seeds of Love, Mommy"
Thank you for planting a garden out of love, the garden which bore the seeds of the life of your treasured flowers—your daughters.
Thank you for being our personal sunshine, who keeps on shining a light upon us, who keeps on brightening our lives with her own ray of laughter and love.
Thank you for being our shelter when the rains and winds of life came. You provided us warmth and protection, but not that much, because you believe that we must also learn to face such circumstances on our own and for that, you taught us to be spirited and tough.
Thank you for bringing us up with a ton of memorable moments in life, which turned into a garden of memories that will always be treasured.
Thank you for the eyes you laid for each one of your precious ones for so many years these eyes were the witnesses of every milestone.
Thank you for strengthening the roots of our upbringing, for instilling values in us and keeping those intact. You are, indeed, the quiet yet formidable strength of our character.
Thank you for always showing us the good in everything. You taught us to believe that there is always something good in this world.
And most of all, thank you for planting the seeds of love in our life. The love that you imparted to us will always remind us of the love that came from the Man above and will always attest that "unconditional love" is something that can be felt and received in one's lifetime.
Know that we will always be the flowers that you raised and tended with love. The flowers that would (hopefully) turn into everything and more than what a mother could ever dream of. The flowers that would (hopefully) give that biggest beam in your face as we finally share our future successes.
With the love that's surmountable to the multitude of flowers in the world, we thank you.
