Dear Nanay

Happy mothers day Nanay. Happy mothers day Mom.

I wanted to let you know how truly sorry I am for not calling you and asking how you've been all these years. It's been a weird time in my life and a time that I haven't made for you to at least tell you that I love you and that I wish I appreciated you more when you were here actually helping us grow up and raise us the best you could and tell me how fat I am and how skinny I am and how smelly I was because I wouldn't take specific showers and whatever crazy filipino things we did when we didn't have a care in the world to even care about anything. You were there in a brief period of time when I was such a snotty kid, but cooked for me and told me how I was such an asshole. At one point I realized how much I loved you and what you did and how funny you were and what it took to get you from point A to B to help us feel healthy.

I love you Nanay. And I hope life is treating you better with that family that you deserve to be around.
