Super Nanay

In our home May 7 is the real Mother's day since it's our mom's real birthday. So I get confused when Mother's day greeting season come in since for me it's not the second sunday of May it's always the 7th of May.

I know I owe my mom a lot and when I was 25, I realized that being a young woman who thought her mom was always just nagging her for no reason, that I was actually very blessed because my mom (both my parents actually) loved me and my siblings so much they were willing to do every legal means to raise us well. No work was too hard and time as well as energy could be stretched to their limit because we mattered most to them the whole world.

In Korea there is Parent's Day and not Mother's and Father's day that is separated. I think that it's okay to have separate hallmark holidays for them but I know that my Inay gets a lot of her strength from my Tatay and vice-versa. To be my parents are a team. They are each other's sidekick and to me and my siblings, they are our heroes.
