Mommy Moments - Precious Gift

When I became a mom, I believe I had received one of the most precious gifts when Joaqui was born. And while Joaqui was growing up, I had discovered a lot about myself and how seeing him everyday completes my existence and gives me simple joy. Joaqui is now 2 years and 10 months old and he does not quite grasp yet the concept of gift giving, but he knows that during birthdays, we give gifts and people can give him gifts also.

I consider the hugs and kisses he gives me everyday as precious gifts from Joaqui. He is so "malambing" to me and would sometimes out of the blue hug me or give me wet kisses. He also would act sad and ask me to give him a hug to comfort him. When he says I love you, my heart swells with joy and I always thank God for this wonderful gift of love that he had given us.
