My Mother's Secret

Friday, March 21, 2008

Whenever I look at my mother, who is almost 67 years old, I admire her face. She looks young for her age. She looks way younger than her 67 years of hardships, trials and adventures. She does not have many wrinkles. Is it her skin care products? But I know she has very simple skin care regimen. Or is it her disposition in life?
Her face shows strength and contentment. On her face, you can read how she has gone through in life. Yet she has a glow in her eyes that can really be seen whenever she begins to talk about her children or her present life.

Despite being a widow for the last, 15 years, she still manages to find happiness and joy in her own way. In spite of being a single parent to her 8 kids for the last 15 years, she managed to carry on with her life, and she still does. She makes her own fun by doing different activities everyday. She goes out everyday, talks to people, does errands for the house, commutes to far places alone, has her own small businesses, buys groceries, manages her own banks accounts and finances, etc…She looks forward to life, everyday!
