MOTHERHOOD... a versatile profession


Everyone of us has a dream ROLE in the society and we aim to fulfill that stature in our lives.  We wish to be SOMEBODY with dignity and  honor.  A person with substance and value.  Our world is a mixture of diversities and complexities but at the end of the day... we will find ourselves clinging to the arms of our family who are always there to bring out the BEST in us that NOBODY else can.

We go HOME and whatever failures or achievements we attained... our family is our ultimate shock-absorber.  Our parents... our dear MOTHER is our critic and avid fan at the same time.

This is my own little way of giving recognition to the most rewarding role of all... Being a mother.  A mother, either working or just plain housewife holds the most duties and responsibilities. Motherhood, a versatile career... a lifetime commitment.

Mother... The LIGHT of every home.

Mother as a manager
My Nanay Tacing

Mother being a...
MANAGER - she has the ability to plan.  Plan not only for the day's activity but she always plan ahead of time.  She has the capacity to organize.  Organize in the sense of getting the chores done in order of priority.  She directs and monitors the work that should be accomplished for the day like getting the laundry done or paying for monthly bills. She also manages to cook the most savory dish for her family.  

Mother as an operator
My beloved Mommy

Mother being an...
OPERATOR - she has the skills of maintaining and safekeeping the various appliances and machines in the house.  She should be the controller of its usage and the one who limits consumption.

Mother as a teacher
My Tita Tessie

Mother being a...
TEACHER - she is the first teacher who inculcate good values like honesty, respect, compassion, patience, generosity, humility, forgiveness, gratitude and selfishness.  She teaches her children the virtue of self-discipline and the power of prayers to guide them in the journey of life.

Mother as a helper
My Tita Aida

Mother being a...
HELPER - she never fails to support her children and give them the proper advises when needed. She never hesitate to extend her warm embrace.  She helps in any way she can.  May it be in kind or in monetary assistance.  But the best support a mother can give to her children is moral support and a shoulder to cry on.

Mother as an economist
My Tita Oyie

Mother being a...
ECONOMIST - she is the budget officer who is conscious of the present price of prime commodities such as rice, grocery items and daily expenses.  The authority to control expenses is in her hands.

Mother as a researcher
My mother-in-law
Mother being a...
RESEARCHER - she is capable of finding out the cheapest, most affordable yet high quality deals in the market.  Education is the parents' priority when it comes to giving their children the best future.  A mother assures the safety of her children.  She should know the schools that provide full protection and strict guidance to students.  She is a researcher of the best possible way to bring her family intact and unharmed.  She should know where to go and ask for assistance when the head of the family is out working for a living,  A mother should be resourceful and independent... cares to seek knowledge through reading or watching informative programs that may further improve her intellectual abilities.

I know that these traits are just few of the many characteristics that a mother may possess.  There are a lot more... actually there's million more.  Motherhood is the most difficult task a woman can handle.  Motherhood is not a one day household chore but a lifetime responsibility that requires STRENGTH and FAITH in order to be fully served.

To all the mothers in the world...
HAPPY MOTHER"S DAY!

  1. I salute all the moms in different parts of the world and definitely, being a mother is such a noble and humbling job. Happy Mother's Day to my Mama and to all the moms in different parts of the world.

    I would like to add that a Mother can also be:
    * LAWYER - because anytime she can defend you in times of problems especially when you have a conflict with other people and she has a fair judgement in dealing with conflicts with their childdren.

    * GUIDANCE COUNSELOR - because she can give advice to her children about different problems.

    * COOK / CHEF -she can cook delicious food to her family.

  3. So eloquently and creatively written! Plus 1 to your MOTHER acronym. Really, moms are all that all at the same time. They're the best multi-taskers. This made me miss my mom. My sister "borrowed" her for mothers day.

  8. Being a full-time mom is a big career and task to take on. She's capable of doing anything and everything. I was trained by my mom not to rely on anyone but myself because you wouldn't know if there's would come a time that you don't have anyone to rely on.
