I recently heard of this contest from Sakura Philippines. They have what they call Sakura Mommy of the Month.
The meat of the contest is where mothers have to submit a photo of themselves that best portrays you as a mother. This got me thinking. Do I have a photo that justifies what I think I am as a mother? I hurriedly went through the photos of Zeeka and I, which were not a lot (since Zeeka’s only one month old and I am camera shy!). I found this photo which was taken by my friend, Polly Fong from Oh Happy Day Birth Photography, and I immediately think “this is it!”.
I think that this picture represents all that I am or all that I want to be as a mom to Zeeka. I want to be a caring mom who is willing to listen to her. I want us to be able to talk about anything under the sun. I want us to have a loving relationship. I want her to feel and see that I would be there to support her and to help her achieve all her goals and dreams. I want her to feel that I love her — REALLY love her.
