MARAMING SALAMAT, MOMMY.
A whole day to honor and celebrate the women who raised us because birthdays, anniversaries, valentines day, and christmas aren’t enough to celebrate motherhood! It’s not that they need more, but they just simply deserve the best all year round.
At this special time of the year, we find ourselves feeling either joyful in remembering our mothers and planning how to make them feel special, or for some feeling lonely for no longer having them. Some lost their mothers to cancer, old age or the current enemy--COVID. Honoring their memory means leaning into the strength they exemplified through their lives and their illnesses.
Now more than ever, we are more sentimental when it comes to our parents. We saw friends lost their mom, lost a family member, or a mother figure to us. A mother who selflessly gave her life for us and who devoted her life to protect and love us endlessly. With this, our team recently sent out surveys to know how we would describe our moms and what mothers would like to hear from us. Yes, we are trained and brought up to say thank you and I love you. Some are too vocal to share their feelings, some are too shy to even speak up, or some are gift givers. But did you know that according to the survey, these are what mothers wanted to hear.
There are countless descriptions of how we see our mothers. But did you know what our moms wanted to hear from us?
MassageMNL Moms only gave us 4 phrases they want to hear. 4 phrases. Can you guess what those are? We often thought that giving gifts, giving money, or anything grand would make moms happy. Yes, of course! But, 4 simple words means gazillion to them. Not only because they are the best, but more so being appreciative of what they do. Have you thanked your mom? Have you told her you love her and appreciate her? If not, go give your mom the best and tightest hug and tell her how much you love and appreciate her.
