Remembering My Nanay

Remembering My Nanay

This is my Nanay, my daughter Dindin, and myself. Three generations of girls in the family. She is quite young because she got married at 17 and had me when she was 18. Those were the times when women marry early. My Nanay may not be a perfect person, but she has loved us in the best way that she knows how, trying to avoid the things that in her past had hurt her, so as to protect and care for my brother and me. She is a very good cook and I have taken up after her. She has not learned culinary arts but she studies consistently in order to prepare the tastiest dishes for us and for her friends.

My mother is having a tough time now because of menopausal symptoms. We just continue to pray for her that she can handle the symptoms without much stress but with a lot of grace in her life. I love you, Nanay. I may not always say this, but I do…very much. My only problem now is, my Nanay is much slimmer than me! buhuhuhu

    thanks for hosting this contest mommy! Sorry for the late submission. I can’t think clearly when I am emotional so I have to write it everyday just before my tears fall. Thanks again. We all have great mothers.
