Filipino celebrities pay tribute to their moms on Mother's Day

Like most nations worldwide, the Philippines is celebrating Mother's Day today, May 8. Filipinos from all walks of life, be they rich or poor, paid tribute to their moms in a variety of ways.

Malls and restaurants are usually jampacked, since most mothers are treated to a dine out by their kids or grandchildren. A lot of moms are smiling, most of them given flowers by their loved ones.

Meanwhile, a lot of celebrities greeted their moms on social media and posted pictures of their mom with very touching messages. Here are some of them:

Mothers. Not only those who carried you in their wombs, gave birth to you, and raised you. Those who may not have seen you from day 1, but came at exactly the time you needed to be mothered the most...They are also Mothers. I have so much love for people like you. Thank you for taking somebody under your wing. You can impact the lives of those in need of your love, just by being truly present, encouraging, patient, kind, and persistent on providing confidence and strength. Happy Mothers Day to you all !!!

You are a strong woman. Don't let your problems get to your head. I know you can do this. You wouldn't be my mother for nothing. You taught me to be wise and tough even at the worst time in life. I sincerely thank you for that. Happy Mother's Day, Mudak @amyforteza

No words are enough to say thank you to this woman who literally gave her life for all of us 11 children in the family. I love you mom. Through you I have experienced pieces of Jesus in my life even before I knew Him in the way I know Him today. I love you and miss you so much. Happy Mother's Day to you.
