MY Parents #HappyBirthdayMa!

This is the only photo that I have of my parents when they were younger.  A lot of people from the place where I grew up always told me that I looked like my mother but I think that I look more like my late father. .
My father  died ten years ago when I was about to get married.  It was a very sad moment for me and my family.  He never got to see me walked down the aisle.  I wish that I could see my Mom more often.  I will talk to her again and see if I can convince her to come here.  He does not want to leave the country because she is afraid of flying.
The last photos were taken at  the airport  when I  left the Philippines, 9 years ago.  I was 7 month pregnant with my daughter  back then.  TODAY, Mama is celebrating her 61st  birthday.  Happy birthday Ma, sorry that it's been nine years that you are celebrating your birthday without me.  I miss you a lot!  May God bless you with good health and protect you from harm always!  We love you!

  3. Happy Birthday to your mom. I bet it is so hard to be so far away from your mom. I am sorry you did not get to have your dad walk you down the isle, I never had that either and wish I could have. I guarantee you he was there watching over you on your beautiful day.

  4. Happy birthday to your mom, sis! I think you're a mixture of your mother and father. Hope she change her mind about going to the US. It'd be great to have the burritos with their lola.

  5. Happy birthday to your Mom! Hopefully one of these days she will overcome her fear of flying (I'm not too fond of it either) and come live with you here-or maybe get her own place. It must be hard on both of you not to be able to see each other.
