"My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it."

I very much appreciate my articles and photos appearing on fellow bloggers' sites, popular broadsheets, and local broadcast news segments, but I would appreciate even more a request for permission first.
Thank you!

My dearest Inay had little bits of trouble with me but I do not think she enjoyed them. It made her worry a bit but she never let anybody know about it...not even me. I wished she live long enough to harvest fully the rewards due her.

For all those who still have living mothers enjoy the life you have with them. They are the best things that will ever happen to your life.

Thanks, Dine! Wishing ou the same :)

Yup, saddest thing of all about this whole photo-snatching thing is that those who do it "have the money" to pay the photographers/artists. Talagang gusto lamang nilang mang-isa ng kapwa nila, ika nga.

gabi na pero Happy Mother's Day pa rin to you Eric, your Ma and All!

My mother has always been my best adviser---to have no judgement about people. She told me (even when I was a teen-ager) to bless those who gives/gave me a tough time. Well, it took me some time to understand this paradox. Thanks, Ma!

Mark Twain was right :-)

breathtaking pictures of my beloved country... thank you for the photos. i miss it more now that your stills blatantly tell me that despite the difficulties we face, we only have one country to love, to live, to embrace.

Trust Mother's Day was a joyful day for all of you, Bernadette.

That was a very wise advise from your mom -- however saddening or enraging some folks' words and actions may be, blessing them and letting go of them to their highest good are the most healing reactions.

Glad you saw the humor in Mark Twain's observation ... hehehe.

Many more locals are getting the photography bug, Suspect, and they're bound to share even more wonderful sceneries of our beloved country.

Thank you!

Thank you, Cookie. I bet you had a wonderful Sunday as well :)

Yes, photography is indeed a creative and relaxing hobby. Glad you're getting more into it. And the more fellow Pinoys get into it, the more we'll get to document our cities, towns, and people :)
