letter to Nanay...

Dear Nanay,

People celebrate mother's day on such different days. On this side of the world, mother's day doesn't happen until next week. Sometimes, it seems as if crossing from one side of the ocean to the other has turned my head topsy-turvy so that I forget things. When do we celebrate mother's day in the Philippines?

My memories are flawed, but I try to write what I remember. My gift to you are these words that cannot be sold or purchased.

I'm too far away right now to give you a hug. There are too many miles between us and this is the closest that I can come to handing you a present. When you read these words, I hope you know that when I wrote them, I was thinking about you.
