Kuya is 40 today. (Byron turned 32 last week.) I texted Mama a Happy 40th Day of Becoming a Mama for the First Time. This time of the year, I think of Mama a lot, how she probably feels...remembering all that time she carried each of us. How do we repay our mother? Can we even do that...repay everything? There's no currency for motherhood, no? I don't know why I even broached the question. I think back to last September when the family was complete in this little house in San Jose Street. My heart is happy. Thanks.
