How important is it to keep a promise? For this mother, I live by it. I would want my boys to associate keeping promises with valuing the person I made that vow. The same way that not keeping a commitment means disrespecting myself as I do not value my words.
I come across this blog post from Mga Pahina ni Msbolin and decides to repost it at Momi Berlin. I am also cleaning my old blog, planning to close it eventually and just concentrate on my new website. I would love to share with you then this post about Keeping Promises and the lessons learned from this.

My mother invited the boys to watch a movie. Firstborn and Bunso went with mother. Second son, however, preferred to stay home with his mama.
Second son: Mama, let us also watch a movie.
Momi Berlin: Sure! What movie do you want to watch?
Second son: What are the options, mama?
Momi Berlin enumerated all the Metro Manila Film Fest entries and gave a short background for each.
Second son: I want the “El Presidente” movie, mama.
