i honor my mother for being able to raise up for boys making her really a mother to all our barkadas*. my friends are close my mother because everytime they visit our house she treats them like her own children. some would even consider themselves as adopted sons of our family. we are blessed to have her in the family because she has been very faithful to us and to my dad for 38years now.
for this post allow me to honor all the mothers in the world and since i'm featuring nightscape for the month of may, i would specifically like to dedicate this post to this woman.
this is manang Nina or short for Antonina, a 55year old sidewalk vendor. she sells candies, coffee and other sidewalk items from 9:00pm till 6:00am because they are only allowed to occupy this area between this time. in the morning she serves her family specially her husband mang Bonifacio who has asthma. she used to do laundry and ironing job but decided to be a vendor instead for her to have enough time to take care of his husband. that's love and dedication.we remember the love and the dedication that our mother gives to us and to our father that even extends to our relatives, neighbors and friends. and we cannot forget Mary's dedication to Jesus and her obedience to God.
happy mother's day!
