While it may be true that you have heard that cliche a million times, but forgive me because I just had a very happy experience earlier when I got home from work.

I was the most exhausted and haggard-looking me coming home to my still awake 9 year old son at past 10 pm.  He stayed awake because he prepared a surprise for me!

After giving my "pasalubong" or treats to him, he dragged me to his room and showed me this:

This was the first letter "clue" which led me to find 1 love letter after the other. He announced to me that he organized a letter hunting activity.
 It reads:
To Our Beautiful Mom:
Mom, find the cards hidden in the room.
And it is (they are) colored green.

 This was the first of the four letters I found inside their toy chest/drawers.
 It reads: 
Dear Mom,
Thank you for the toys that you bought before.
Sorry for not playing (with) my expensive toys (wow! define expensive please anak!)
I love you mom, remember that always po ha.

This next letter, I found under his table.
 It reads:
Dear Mom,
Thank you for my study table for me to study.
I am always there to help you po.  
I love you po so much!

The next letter I saw was in between his stack of K-Zome magazines, his current favorite reads.
 It reads:
Dear Mom,
Thank you for the K-Zones that I read
You are the best Mom that I have/
Thank you po for loving and caring (for) me.
I love you po!

The next letter was hard to find, it was inside his closet lang pala!  This is my favorite among all four letters. :)
It reads:
Dear Mom, 
Thank you for my clothes.
When I am wearing my clothes, I think I am the fanciest 
and the coolest boy in the world!
I love you po Mom!
Everything that you wear, you are BEAUTIFUL! :)

My tears are very shallow and it just builds up inside my eyes for as long as I can hold it.  This was the very example when those tears, of joy that is, just ran down my cheeks.  I immediately thanked, hugged him and said how much I love him!  I am truly ecstatic right now.  Indeed the BEST THINGS in life are FREE!

Let me end this by sharing with you some pieces of advice I give my son, which he will learn to use them when he grows up.
Showing that you truly care or love a person doesn't end in just giving gifts or letters.
When you keep a promise, make sure you don't bend any.
Actions speak louder than words.  
Goodnight everyone! :)
