An Unwavering Love: A Mother's Journey Towards a Perfect Smile and Bright Future for Her Child

Mother’s Day is a special occasion to honor and celebrate the courage, triumphs, and unconditional love of mothers. For many mothers, their greatest joy is to see their children smile and have a bright future. 

However, for some mothers, this joy is not easy to achieve, as their children suffer from cleft lip and palate, a congenital condition that affects their appearance, speech, nutrition, and self-esteem. Their unwavering love became the driving force that propelled them toward a path of transformation and hope.

A Mother’s Plight to Achieving Great Joy

Take the case of Lina, a mother of four from Negros Oriental, who faced this difficult reality when her youngest daughter, Mary Joy, was born with a cleft lip and palate. She was saddened when she saw her daughter’s condition and blamed herself, wondering what she did wrong during her pregnancy. Upon learning of her daughter's diagnosis, Lina’s heart was filled with both love and concern, and wanted to give her the best care possible.

The gift of healthy ‘crowning glory’ fit for the queen this Mother’s Day

Cliche it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her nanay, inay, ‘nay, mama, mommy or simply mom. Needless to say, she deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood and possibly for the rest of our lives. 

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority.

This month, you can turn the tables and give your moms the royal treatment. Indulge the Queen of your home at the All Out Mommy Royalty—a Mother’s Day extravaganza at the Araneta Center. For the whole month of May, royal treats for moms worth over P100,000 will be given away!

On Mother’s Day, May 11th, show your mom some love at the Mother’s Day Royal Bash at the Gateway Activity Area, where mommies can expect fun games and prizes to be given away during the event.

REEL DEAL: The Mommy Returns REVIEW

This Mother's Day its time to treat mom to a mommy film. As many local movies focus more on romantic love, it time to again celebrate motherhood, and Regal Films brings the mommy movie of the year with THE MOMMY RETURNS

The Mommy Returns is a family comedy-horror movie about a mother, Ruby (POKWANG) who dies right on the day of her 25th wedding anniversary with gorgeous husband, William (GABBY CONCEPCION). With her untimely death, she is temporarily trapped in PURGA (short for Purgatory) with its guardian, Dyoga (JOHN LAPUS, ang diyosa ng purga) and the pesky Manny, the chicken pet of San Pedro.

Enter CATHERINE (RUFFA GUTTIEREZ) - a younger, fresher, and much, much prettier woman who comes into the life of William. When she threatens to take Ruby's place as mother to her three beloved children (KIRAY, GERALD PESIGAN and JILLIAN WARD), hell (er, purgatory) breaks loose as Ruby escapes back to earth as a ghost to scare and drive Catherine out of the family she left behind!

Give Love on Mother’s Day!

Being a mother is one of the most challenging yet the most rewarding jobs in the world. As each of these precious women is  unique,  each one has her own way of showing her  unconditional and tireless love to her  kids. So we honor our moms during this particular time of the year by showing our love for them through the most special way that we could think of. 

On Mother’s Day, we put them under the spotlight and make our moms feel the prettiest and most special. We give them sweet solutions like a trip to her favourite hangout spot, a day off from her usual household chores, a box of chocolates, a salon makeover or a bouquet of her favorite flowers. But have you ever thought about giving such a special woman in your life something that can last for more than a day or a week? 

Instead of going to the store and buying her a predictable gift,, why not sit down and take time to write an old-fashioned  note to express your gratitude for everything she has done for you? Rather than a store-bought present, let your heartfelt love notes fill her heart as you take time to thank the woman who has gotten you out of bed and made you breakfast every morning, picked you up and patched your wounds, kept a vigil by your bedside whenever you were sick and stood by you all these years.
