On the Run iPhone Fun – Happy Mothers’ Day!
May 8, 2011
It’s been one crazybusypacked weekend, but refreshingly, about half the crazybusy that packed this weekend was celebration-oriented. Part of the reason for festivities, of course, is Mother’s Day here in the US.
This year though, I get to celebrate Mothers’ Day. Yes, this year I have two mothers for this day.
This is Mama Wang. The wifey and I only recently married last year, but Mama Wang never once failed to treat me like anything less than her own over the past few years since moment zero. She doesn’t speak English, and I don’t speak Mandarin, but it doesn’t get in the way of her constant knowing smiles, the way she never lets a glass or plate go empty the way a mother wouldn’t, or the care with which she tries to anticipate wants (and address them before they become needs).
Meet Mama Jocson. I was born at a very very young age due to many many hours and this lady. Officially her profession was registered nurse, but she’s a mom through and through. She’s just the type that knows how to take care of others better than she does of herself. Talk to most people about their childhood, and they’ll tell you about the countless hours they spent with their best friend, the adventures they have, and the fun they had playing for ever and ever. Me? — The time I spent with my mom is rivaled only by the amount of hours I spent absorbing the TV’s warm radiation. I couldn’t ask for a better mom (though I’ve been known to often and frequently ask for a better TV).
Curious for more fun facts about the moms? Last year for our wedding reception, the wifey and I put together a video we shared with our guest to honor our parents. Thanks to Al Gore and the power of the internets, I can now share things like that as easy as one could whip out photo albums years ago that relived their their special day.
