It was Mother’s day yesterday, May 9 and after giving my warm greetings and kiss to my mom, I started giving well wishes to my mom – friends.
I even gave my greetings to my old dean who happens to be an old maid but I warmly consider as my second mother while I was in Zamboanga for seven years. My son even called her Lola Dean. She is a family to us and my mentor. She was quite touched after wishing her every year.
But, I am more touched that my students from my old schools gladly wish me their Mother’s Day greetings. I pray that they are always happy and that their future promises good things only.
This is the very reason why I cant give up teaching, it just warms my heart to be loved and to love the students.
