Happy Mother's Day Mama Bear!






As a child, whenever I was asked what my mother did for a living, I would poke my back, near my spine pretending to inject something using my index finger. I wouldn’t make a sound except for the onomatopoeia “chook”. I don’t know if people understood, but I have a feeling that they already knew that my mom was an anesthesiologist. I guess they were just asking because they knew how I would answer them,  and they wanted to see for themselves what I would actually do. No one can blame me for responding in such a way. I’m sure you would agree that "anesthesiologist" is too long a word for a 2 year old!

It’s an amazing story how my mom became a doctor. She came from a very poor family. Her dad was a teacher, her mom a housewife, and she had 12 other siblings! She was the youngest among the 13. IMAGINE THAT! 13! It’s sad that not all of her siblings grew up to maturity, but anyway, that’s her family background.

Who would have thought that somebody from that situation can become a doctor? It seems impossible right? My mom’s example just shows that nothing and no one can prevent God from working in the lives of His people. He made a way, gave my mom college and medical school scholarships, and made her able to finish BS Zoology from the Mindanao State University, and get her MD from Davao Medical School Foundation (thanks to the Nellie Kellog Van Schaick Scholarship Program). 

Thank God, today we have Dr. Isabelita Cruzado, a mom, a wife and a doctor. And, I’m writing this to honor her, whose dedication to serve the people, her family, and God, led her to sacrifice her comfort. Mom, a queen like you shouldn’t have stayed in Pikit, North Cotabato, a very uncomfortable place, but you did. You obeyed God’s call, and because of your obedience, He has blessed you with more than you ever asked for (yes mom, 3 wonderful daughters is more than enough :p just kidding!).

Happy Mother's Day Mama Bear! We LOVE you! <3

This greeting is not just for my mom. I would also like to greet ALL MOTHERS out there. Happy MOTHERS' DAY! :)
