Months before John's arrival, my mother was already so anxious about his coming to our shanty house. She told me many times that John might back out when he sees our dampa (shanty) that we were living in. I told her that we will see what will happen.
So when John finally arrived home, she was so nervous that she can't stop sweeping the ground with the broom which is still very vivid to John's mind until now hehehe. He asked me then why Mama was sweeping the floor continuously even if it was already so clean. I told him that she was just so nervous.
That's my mother with hubs when we were leaving from my place going to Legazpi. I am missing Mama terribly these days especially if my daughter is giving me a hard time lol. I am asking myself, maybe I did something like this to my mother when I was a kid. I love and miss you Ma, happy mother's day. Hope to talk to you this Saturday!
Unfortunately for me, I wasn't able to meet John's Mom in person but I was able to talk to her on the phone a couple of times when I was still in the Philippines and John was still in Guam. I also sent her letters and cards. I just wish that I could have meet her in person.
