Hi Mommy

Hi Mommy, it’s Mother’s Day”s Eve. I was wracking my brains what message to send you. A card? A bouquet of flowers? Chocolate kisses? Bear hugs? All that, I suppose, plus much, much more.
So I was scrolling down facebook newsfeed and saw many a touching messages and collages from children to their mothers. But you know I am neither artistic nor creative. That leaves me to sending what i do best. Write.
But what to write? Every one who knows you already know you are such a congenial, conscientious, and thoughtful person. They would say you are kind and generous and helpful, A most gregarious lady, never prejudiced, with malice to none, In fact, you are quite forgiving to those who had done you wrong,.
That is why you are my guidepost, because you are so sturdy during the storms of your life. And if only I could be as calmly as you are, gentle as the soft wind, then perhaps I could be like you. You are all I ever wanted to be.
Indeed, Mommy, I can still hear your singing voice in my ears, thank you very much for humming the Marian hymns in my childhood. Yes, I can still see the images at ‘St. Joseph’s Church, where you brought us to Sunday Masses. Those formative years were so vivid in my memory, and that is because that is the bonding you instilled in my being.
I could write a long Thank You book, for all the caring and the loving that you selflessly devoted your self into, and the trials and errors of motherhood would be obscured. Nope, you are not just the best mother, you are the perfect one.
You were bestowed many sorrows, and you endured all. You remained calm and gentle when the storms lashed. how could I not admire and adore you. God must have loved me so much for making you my mother.
I am so proud of you, Mommy, you have kept the faith despite all odds. A good race, Mommy. Thank You again, for showing me how to be a Captain of my Fate and the Master of my Soul.
I love you, Mommy. A sweet Mother’s Day.
Love, Eileen heart emoticon heart emoticon ,♥

Postscript on a Punching Stat of the Mayweather-Pacquiao Fight

Time was, when boxing greats like Muhammad Ali show up for a match inside the boxing ring, one is guaranteed not just a sport but some kind of total entertainment. Boxing was called boxing because the boxers box.

Today, a new sport was started by Floyd Mayweather, and from the parlance of well respected boxing critics and analyzers, a new terminology has emerged. It is called defensing. It is a Mayweather invention, scientifically and statistically proven effective, wherein a fighter, when being punched, swaggers, hugs, scratches with unnecessary punches, and runs.

Thus the demise of a sport called boxing. Do you think that celebrities who flew in style. via private jets to Las Vegas, would ever purchase a boxing ticket again just to watch defensing. Nope. They won’t. These celebrities had been had by a scheming Mayweather Promotions who made sure that they collected their money. They played by hook and by crook, if the reports that even Manny Pacquiao‘s entourage was treated very ill, are true.

These very important people who watched the fight knew what they saw, even if the commentators were saying something much different from what was happening. It’s a brainwashing game.

And in the aftermath, the supposedly whiz of critics, like the father and son tandem, Recah and Chino Trinidad, exposed their envious vehemence of Manny Pacquiao by justifying with numbers. Or that what’s his name? Philip Guico?Tcheh. No different from those Las Vegas conspirators who attacked a seemingly lone Pacquiao from all angles: from a prejudiced referee, to biased judges, to unfair conditions. These sinister boxing aficionados could have given a spectacular bout, but they angered the viewers with boos. I am disgusted more with our own people vilifying our own People’s Champ. Talk about betrayal being a most grievous sin.

Las Vegas and Mayweather played with the minds of the children, by brainwashing them. making everyone believe Mayweather is a great defensive, scientific boxer. When Mayweather lies alone in bed at night, does he really believe he is great? Come on, stop deceiving yourself. No sinister scheme could make you a person great that you really want to be. And stay away from Bieber, he is so young and so repulsive.

At the end of the day, Manny Pacquiao, consoling words must be pouring in, and let me add some more to the litany: the greatness of a man comes from what he has done, not from what he ran away from.

Do not look at this tally. it is an added ploy to insult the already injured.

And a footnote to America: stop deceiving your people, especially your children. Doom looks like it is in the offing. Your people are going self-destruct. Because even with a simple game as boxing, you cannot come clean and true
