A Mother's Love

My mom and I almost never see eye to eye on things. We argue, we stubbornly refuse to admit when we're wrong, and we both dish out the silent treatment until one of us (usually me) cracks. Yet despite all of this, despite our differences, I love her fiercely. She grew up completely different from my American background, and I admire and respect her so much for that. Her strong, independent nature and determination to pull through has always inspired me. Not only that, but her faith in God and practical wisdom continually challenge me to grow spiritually. That's probably why I can claim to have a grounded personality - it came from her and learning her ways.

My mom is not just my mother. She's my councellor. She's often my psychiatrist. She's my authority. But above all, she is my closest friend.

Happy Mother's Day mom, I love you deeply. 
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6

That pic of the 2 of you is so adorable. And very glad you, especially already at your age, can appreciate what a treasure you mom is. Doesn't surprise me considering how grounded you are, but still, makes me smile.

Ashley said...

Beautiful pictures and beautiful words. Happy mama's day to all the wonderful moms out there, yours and mine included :)

Oh Linda! What a great post and what a great honor to your Mom. When I saw the first picture I took a double take, thinking it was you. You are so fortunate to have such a wonderfully loving Mom!!! Hug to you both!!!!!!!!

The portrait of your mother was very classic. I feel like I know her without really knowing her -- bravo. You are a talented photographer :)

My mom and I don't see eye to eye too most of the time. But I think I got that stubbornness from her. The older I get, the more I learned to respect her.
Btw, I'd like to invite you to a Firmoo glasses give-away on my blog (http://ahintofsunlight.blogspot.com/2013/05/may-new-arrivals-at-firmoo-giveaway.html). I hope you'll join! :)

Elana said...

Aw, this is so sweet and your mom is absolutely adorable! Hope she had a great mother's day!

GitaRegina said...

Linda, I miss you so much !
I have a trouble on my blogs couple days ago, and I can't fix it. Eeengh, it makes me upset at the moment.
Anyway, your mom is beautiful. You just like her at all ! No doubt.
Happy mother's day, Linda's Mom :D

xo,
G

Well that's lovely and all, but above all, she is YOUR TWIN! Lol. You look just like her! So cute. I look just like my mom too. I feel bad now that I didn't think to do a Mother's Day post like this. Lots of bloggers did. There's always next year!

Carla Florendo said...

you look so like your mom. now i can see where you got your moles. =) my mom and i have the exact same kind of relationship. and the same background clearly, cos i grew up in Macau while she in the PI. but yeah, totally agree, love mom fiercely. =) be lated happy moms day to ur mom!

katie said...

Oh wow, you look so much like your momma! This is such a sweet post, I always love seeing it when other people appreciated and love their mommies. Well, granted, a lot of people have rough lives and might not have moms that love them, but it use to drive me crazy when my friends would gripe about their moms and it was like really? Your moms love you so much and do so much for you and you're made you can't stay out past 10? Get a reality check girl! Heh, I guess I knew so grumps, or maybe I'm just a grump, but I saw how hard my mom work and how much she protected us and I'm so thankful towards her for it. This was a terribly sweet post and I'm sure it really touched your mom's heart. She must be so proud to have such an amazing and sweet young lady for a daughter!

your mommy is beautiful, really.
