Last Mother’s Day was my first official Mother’s Day celebration. I got up early to prepare Noa for attending our church service in Faith Fellowship. My daughter started attending her Sunday School classes as early as 6 months old. She just turned 10 months last May 4th. I thank the Lord for this church ministry to the kids.
About 2 weeks ago, I sent in an entry for a parenting website for their Mother’s Day blog contest. I just tried pushing my luck with it, perhaps, armed with a little hopeful mommy heart.
We were waiting for my parents to pick us up so I took some moment to check on my social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter. It was right on time because I immediately saw Ms. Christine Bersola-Babao‘s tweet regarding the winners of her parenting website called ParenTIN.tv.
This was her exact tweet:
|Mommy Tin’s announcement of winners|
I immediately opened link and my heart jumped for joy when I saw my name on the list! Yay!
After I saw my name, I immediately (and happily) composed a reply tweet for her, thanking her and the website for choosing me as one of the winners. I did not expect that she would reply back!
As one of the winners, Mommy Tin told us that we are getting these as our prizes! 🙂 Another YAY! 🙂

The prizes include this Red Ribbon Ultimate Chocolate Cake and Php 1,500.00 pampering GCs for me and Noa from the Little Lamb’s Kiddie Salon. Isn’t it amazing?! 🙂
Aside from this blessing from God through Mommy Tin, my first Mother’s Day was truly unforgettable! Last Saturday, my daughter and I did a little strolling in a nearby Robinson’s Mall. We visited Toys ‘R’ Us and I could see through my daughter’s small eyes that she really had fun!
We even got a lot of free chocolates and a souvenir photo from Toblerone Pilipinas since they had a mall promotion at that time! 🙂
Thank you so much for all your warm greetings last Mother’s Day. I’m sorry if I wasn’t able to reply to all of you. Rest assured that I have treasured those appreciation in my heart.
May God continuously shower his abundant blessings to all the families around the world; most especially to the families of my blog readers!
I am one proud mom and will always be.
Again, belated Happy Mother’s Day! 🙂
