Today is your big day and we have to celebrate.
Nurturing us for nine months in the womb,
and enduring all the pain.
Our mothers know what's best for us,
working hard to give us a bright future.
Below is a heartfelt message by our President Duterte
to all the mothers in the world.
for mothers are not limited to our biological mothers.
When they treat us like our mothers,
they too become mothers for us.
An adopted child looks up to his adoptive mother
as his very own mother
and those children taken care by their relatives or other people
also treat them as their very own.
Single fathers can be called mothers too
when they provide for their children alone.
And anyone else who treats us like his own children
we can automatically call our mother.
Even though we consider our very own mother
to be the best mother in the world,
there is the One Mother who is greater than any mother.
And She's our Mother Mary, Mother Of Christ Jesus,
who always prays for us to the Almighty.
Happy Mothers' Day Mother Mary!
Pray for us always.
