MOMI LAUGHS AND CRIES/ a rose for mama

Aug 5, 2016 | Life, Love

A collection of flower-related stories through the years.

July 6, 2011

dsc00406One Sunday morning, Bunso went outside for a walk. He returned after a few minutes, Bunso with a small yet super bright yellow flower on his hands.

Bunso:  This is for you, mama.

Momi Berlin:  Oh, thank you, my Bunso.  Why give me flowers?

Bunso:  Because I love you.

dsc00403We left home to watch the Azkals vs Sri Lanka game. I left the small flower by our sofa and when we arrived home, the flower has withered. Bunso was disappointed.

Before dinner, he asked permission to go to the big house.  After a few minutes, with him was a small bunch of Santan flowers.

Bunso:  Mama, flowers for you, again.  This time, please put it in a vase, will you?

Momi Berlin:  (hurriedly look for a small cup.   Poured water on the vase.  And placed the withered flower and the Santan flower in the makeshift vase.) There, Bunso.  Our flowers are now in a vase.

Bunso:  (smiled triumphantly).

*  the makeshift vase is a cup of Bunso’s five-year-old feeding bottle

I love letter writing before.  I still love to do it until now, not that frequent as before though.  And I would always end my note with “a rose for you.”

Yesterday, I received a clay rose from Second son.  And he made the rose himself.

Thank you, Second son.

Today, I am 35 years old.  And husband gives me lots of flowers found in every corner of the small house.

A beautiful centerpiece at our dining table for almost a week.

 

 

Just before going down, husband puts this vase with a number of tulips by our hallway.

A 50-stem bouquet I first found by our kitchen sink.  Why kitchen sink?  Because it is the first place I go to as soon as I wake up.  And for more than a week, this bouquet stays in our kitchen counter making me smile every time I cook for my boys.

 

 

 

 

 

Another set of flowers by our bed.

And by our living room, I found rose petals with a sweet note and a perfume, all from a husband who has been extra sweet that day just to make me feel appreciated and loved!

Thank you.  Indeed, a very happy and memorable birthday for a 35-year old mom.

    I’m not fond of flowers but my ex-bf now husband gave me tulips when we were in College. It lasted for one week naman. Now, no more flowers because I told him, mas type ko chocolates. hehehe!

      Still so sweet of him to give you chocolates. I love chocolates, too, more than flowers. Ehehe

    Hey, wait! You watched PH Azkals VS Sri Lanka? Is this the one in Rizal memorial stadium? Because we were there too! oh my!!! So baka dati nagkabungguan na tayo! haha. And we’re destined to be friends? charot! haha. Btw, super sweet ni Daniel (lahat ng Daniel sweet, ehem, haha). That’s why Nate never forgot about him. 😀

    The practical me would always say that giving flowers is such a waste because they just wither and die. Whenever I do receive flowers though, all that thought goes out the window and I just feel so happy. Haha! It’s been ages since I’ve last received a bouquet though.

      I agree. Mentioned that to husband long long time ago but he still gives me flowers. He loves giving me flowers.

    Awww so sweet. My hubby is not the flowers type of guy. But he does like surprising me with chocolates every so often. He knows I’m such a chocoholic. 🙂 My son has given me a few flowers already though. He picks them up from random gardens coz we don’t really have a garden at home. Haha!

    • momiberlin

      Haha. So sweet of your boy to pick flowers then give them to you. Ganyan din si big bunso ko. Hahaha. Nangunguha ng bulaklak sa kapitbahay.

    Flowers makes Momi happy, but is it the flowers or the thought behind it? I love the first anecdote you shared. From your kiddo because he loves you. Such a sweet boy. I wonder how many broken hearts there will be in the future? HAHA.

    Reply
    • momiberlin

      Yes, i agree. Its the thought that really counts- Cliche as it may sound. My big bunso is the sweetest among as well so i hope he will be faithful to his future girlfriend and please, wag manglalaro ng feeling ng iba.

      Thanks. Miss ko na ang mga bulaklak na yan. Haha. Big boys na sila kaya medyo shy na sila magbigay ng flowers.

    Receiving flowers has always been something I secretly love 🙂 Good thing my hubby figured it out. It would be nice if I could receive flowers again from him, and our son 🙂 Maybe during our anniversary or something. Hehe!

    So sweet. Flowers have a way to the woman’s heart. I don’t know why. But being given flowers is special. Especially if it’s someone you loved, and when it’s unexpected.

    Reply
    • momiberlin

      Yes, indeed sweeter when unexpected.

    I always give my Mom flowers as well, I love seeing her eyes brighten whenever she receives one. I gave it to her to ease all the tiring days she gone to and to let her feel how much I love her.I think that is the same thing that they want you to feel. You are so lucky to have them

    That’s beautiful! I love to receive flowers and am looking forward to the day I am a mommy and my little one brings me flowers.

    I don’t like flowers much, thankfully my girlfriend neither haha. But I think it’s all about the message behind. All those stories with flowers with it, is a great idea post. All of the stories are also very sweet

    The flower-giving is really a sweet gesture especially if you receive it from your children. I’ve not been a fan of the the act since I’m one of those who think that it may be a waste of money since some buy just to have something to give but once in a while, it’s a sweet thing to do. It’s not that everyday you’ll receive one. I just hope they’ll continue doing that even if they become older.

    Your sons are really adorable 🙂 They are such a little gentlemen! I always loved flowers, getting them as a gift or just seeing them. They’re so beautiful

    Your boys are so sweet. My daughter is like that as well, she picks flowers outside to give just because.
