You’re my Number 1

A baby asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”

“Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.”

The child further inquired, “But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.”

God said, “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel’s love and be very happy.”

Again the child asked, “And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?”

God said, “Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.”

“And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?”

God said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.”

“Who will protect me?”

God said, “Your angel will defend you even if it means risking it’s life.”

“But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.”

God said, “Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.”

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.”

“You will simply call her, ‘Mom.‘”

Mom, mommy, mama, mother, inay, nanay, inang, ima and much more.  These are the many names we call the one person in our lives whom God gave us to be our mother.

In our lives’ journey though God gives us not only our biological mothers but other people who enter our lives and enrich it as our mothers would do.  I’ve been so lucky to have several ones as depicted in the following  video which was prepared by a very good friend and given to me on my golden birthday.  Thanks so much Tita Edna.

Two of my moms (my real mother and my lola) are in God’s hands now and  I do miss them especially on occasions like this when mother’s are being greeted on a special day.

My realization is to show them how much we love and appreciate them and their loving kindness while they are still with us.

I so love this commercial about Moms being the number 1 in a kid’s life

Look at me mom…. Shining like the sun
Bright as the day…. You’re my number one

And there’s no treasure… That i will cherish like you

And when i smile… They all see you glow
And they all know…. You’re my number one

My one and only joy …. Is to give you my love

My one love for you… I give through and through
I see you and the signs that bring joy
That all the world can see so clearly

Look at me mom… Shining like the sun
Bright as the day…. You’re my number one

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL MOTHERS and the not so mothers!
