Tears of joy!

Since I already got a bouquet of flowers from my youngest daughter Kamilla two days before Mothers day, ( second Sunday of february)  I didn't imagine that she will have a surprise for me on the exact day. Best gift ever I receive on Mothers day. It made me cry. 
                                                     
                                  My daughter Kamilla


           She gave me this big envelope! I thought it was a big card.


I wondered what was inside!

I found this:


It is a website on Star online register and I have now a star with my name.


This is how my star look like after following the coordinates given. The name of the star is Ligaya
 ( JOY)

I don't really know if it is true, but the thought that my daughter did it for me was touching. But what made me really cry was her letter that was included in the gift.


Tears already flowed from my eyes in the first sentence. Because in this house, it is actually me who always voice out what I feel. So this is very new to me. First love letter I got from my youngest daughter.

It said in the letter: 

"To the best mother in the world:

I have known you for almost twenty years of my life. In the last few years, our relationship has grown better, and we are closer to each other than ever, which I really appreciate. We have learned to get to know each other better, over the years.
After many years of misunderstanding each other and arguing, we now have a  fantastic mother and daughter relationship. I could not have a better mother than you. It is you who knows me best, although I say the opposite.
You are kind, thoughtful and always put others higher than yourself. This is how it makes you a special person and also a fantastic mother, not only to me but to my brother and sisters who lives in the other side of the world.

I bought a star in the sky for you, to show you how much you meant to me. From the starry sky and back, so much I love you. 

Thank you so much for being  the person you are, mom. I love you."



With that I am thanking my daughter for making this Mother's day very special to me. A letter that I will cherish in my heart.

JOY

  4. the letter made me cry too... I am a self confessed mama's boy and that message is so touching... How I wish I could send the same message to my mom for she is just like you... you're lucky to have Kamilla but she is luckier to have you...

    Totoo naman at ramdam ko ang motherly care from you even with your comments sa amin. That's why we consider you as one of the mothers of PBO too...

    You deserve to be named after a star coz really you are one...

  12. Gee, Joy, congrats for your star and thanks be to God who is the giver of all beautiful things under the sky for giving you a very thoughtful daughter.

    I like what she wrote in her dedication for you and I think she is so because of you. Happy Mothers' Day! I think the Philippines celebrates ours in May.

    But that is the sweetest Valentine ever. Hugs to you, Joy.
