A mother is a patchwork of love as an author said. All through the years she had never fail to capture and amazed me by what she does. She had always been there for us, in every step we go through in life. My father actually works abroad as an overseas filipino worker. Both of them had truly sacrificed a lot for our good that’s why my mother although a plain housewife ventured in small businesses. She has always been simple, content, understanding and a principled woman. And always said that I should take good care of my siblings and especially be patient with my older sister who has an autistic disorder. She raised me well with full understanding in the condition of my sister and my responsibilities as well .And then I would always remember how my father dance with my sister and me while mother prepares food(she cooks excellently). That’s was what I promised to her that someday I’d help her put up her own restaurant. She had always been selfless, not giving whatever is left but what she has .Last year, my parents met a motor vehicle accident. The lowest point in my life was to see my parents both in pain, my mother was slightly unresponsive and I could see blood in the forehead because of her head injury in the frontal area; CT scan was immediately done and ruled out serious head injuries and internal bleeding . My father had minor injuries but mama had a rib and pelvic (double fracture) which we had feared in what might could be an outcome of that but she stayed calm and strong and never showed her weaknesses . For 5 months, she has been on rehabilitation and physical theraphy. It was also painful for me to see them esp in that condition but I wanted to stay strong for them. It was like she was becoming a child again and started to walk like basics until she gained confidence. She is actually easily fond with other people, she has befriended healthcare providers in the facilities. The doctor actually announced that prognosis is good but would take long but she proved that she can withstand everything and less than a year she had regained her strength and can able to walk properly and do some chores . It been almost a year since that incident had happened but it had changed our lives and made us grow more closer with each other and to God. In everything that we had go through, I had learned to treasure and cherish more the people and the things that I have now. I am very blessed that God had given me a chance to utilize the time wisely as I could and not just wasting everyday chasing shadows and letting each day passed. She will always be the person that I’ll always admire and love, and I thank her for everything I’ve learned and become.
