I’ve started drafting my next blogpost on the 30 Days of Blogging Prompts Journal I’m putting together, but the second prompt is a tad bit too deep for me to write as quickly as the first I attempted last night. I’ve made a list of what make up three of my legitimate fears (and how they became legitimate), but it’s not as simple as listing them down.
I’ll get to it tomorrow.
I really should be off to la-la land now, but my siblings called and we had an hour to chat and catch up. I even got to speak with Mom. That is always good, except when she’s upset about something and she was okay today.
My mom turns 73 on the 9th. I was in Manila to celebrate her birthday last year. That celebration of the woman who made me who I am today was one of the few happy memories of 2012. This year, we’re celebrating birthdays apart, but I’m trying to convince her to come over. That is if the Embassy gives her the requisite visa when she goes for her interview on the 12th. I’m not too worried. I’m more worried about convincing her to take the trip after the visa renewal is granted.
Mothers are a strange specie, and I say that as a Mom myself. But what would we do without them? Where would we be if they weren’t around?
I love you, Mom. We all do. I hope you’ll give me the chance to spend some time with you soon here on my side of the world.
