What can I give my Nanay?

What can I give my nanay who’s given me so much?


I know there’s been a lot

of give-and-take

in our relationship.

Mostly it’s been you giving

and me taking

Now that I’m grown, though,

I’m trying to do

my share of the giving.

It’s harder than I thought

it would be –


What do you give someone

who has given you everything?

Maybe the same things you gave me.

A hand to hold.

A hug whenever you need one.

A heart that knows

what you mean without

you having to say a word.

Whatever you need – it’s all yours.

Because you dedicated your life to me,

I return back by making sure

I will always be there for you, too.


Happy Mother’s Day po.




 There are four mothers in my life today.


1.  MY NANAY – My biological nanay never got tired taking care of me and my siblings. When I was with her and was just growing up, I took for granted the things that she did for us. But working abroad and away from home made me realize how much my mother has been doing for us to live a comfortable life. To her I owe the biggest part of who I am today.


2.  NANAY REMY – Nanay Remy is my mother-in-law. I can see from my wife and my wife’s siblings that they were all taken cared of. I am proud to have her as a new parent.


3.  MA’AM O. – Ma’am O was my college English professor who has now become a friend and a second mother. She has inspired me with her words of wisdom. She is somebody I will never forget.


4.  MY WIFE – This will be the first and only mother’s day when she is already a mother, but she cannot see her child yet. But I can already see how she takes the role of a mother while nurturing our baby inside her womb. I am so happy knowing Inigo will be well-taken cared of. I am so glad to have her as my son’s mother.


I am so blessed to have them in my life.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there.

No one person can ever experience all that life has to offer. It is only through sharing - experiences, feelings, insights - that we can hope to grow beyond our own meager lifetime.

Nurses are tough people. But behind great nurses are inspirations to keep them doing what they need to do - TO CARE.

Nurse or non-nurse, please feel free to move around the site. Everybody needs inspirations to be encouraged every now and then.
