I got this Mommy Merit Badges from Rose of Nostalgic Marveling. I should have posted this on Mother’s Day, but we went to our Nanay’s place to celebrate her special day and we got home rather late. But I wouldn’t pass up this opportunity to say that all moms deserve to be recognized for their love and sacrifices. It’s not easy being a mom; I know that now. As a mom, you have to learn to put others’ needs first before your own. Let me end this piece with a poem that describes how deep and tender a mother’s love is.

A MOTHER’S LOVE
A Mother’s love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many splendoured miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
