it's mama's bday

i was pleasantly surprised with how i was feeling this morning, minutes after i woke up at 5am. i was unusually feeling light, joyful even, very much unlike the past mornings. whereas before i would drag my feet to wash up my face before i go to our morning mass, this morning i had the energy to even fold my blanket and fix my bed, then go straight to bath and enjoy every minute of my shower. then i realized, yes, today's mama's birthday.

i knew that today's going to be different. it still feels different at this moment, 10 minutes before 6pm. even if i missed the answer to our epistemology exam this morning. even if i still have the term paper i am slowly starting to write and am hoping to finish by tonight. even if there's still that memory of defeat a couple of days ago, and there's that great challenge to find meaningful and effective means to carry on the fight for truth.

this feeling of lightness, of calm, i welcome very much, and am very grateful for.

i should be the one giving Her a gift.

napalitan ko na po.Ü

Idol ko talaga si Mama Mary. Gusto ko, 'pag naging ina ako *crossing my fingers*, gagayahin ko s'ya. Sobra talaga s'ya magmahal. Kahit minsan, hindi n'ya naiintindihan 'yung mga ginagawa ni Christ, kahit na minsan nasasaktan s'ya dahil alam n'yang "iiwan" s'ya ng Anak n'ya sa huli, nagmahal pa rin s'ya.

Kaya nga kahit na medyo may issues kami ni Lord, napasimba ako kanina dahil birthday ni Mama Mary.

Happy happy.Ü

Good luck sa term paper!Ü

i feel like i'm reading a blog of a different person. after having a dose of the political scenario from your past blogs, parang iba ang birthday ni mama. Ü but that's good. there's more to ryan than meets the eye. Ü
