NAKAKA-TOUCH ang mensahe ni Kris Aquino sa kaarawan ng inang si rating Presidente Corazon Cojuangco – Aquino kahapon, Enero 25 dahil ginunita niya ang unang regalong ibinigay niya sa ina galing sa unang suweldo niya sa showbiz.
Isang mamahaling relong Bulgari ang ipinost ni Kris sa kanyang Instagram bago siya matulog nitong Miyerkoles ng madaling araw.
Aniya, ”this watch was 1 of the gifts I gave my mom when I started earning okay money. I’m sure this was during the airing of primetime Game KNB, she was meticulous about keeping boxes and the warranty- and the date says October 2002.
“If you are wondering about the significance of the date, I’m 100% sure it was from a contract renewal with ABS CBN (Today w/ Kris started last quarter of 1996). I wanted to give my Mom something to mark my success then- nothing flashy that she wouldn’t wear but something I felt had meaning & was SPECIAL. It was important to me to pay tribute to her because she always put me first. By no means were my faults & shortcomings overlooked- but she had the faith that I could & would be all she’d hoped & prayed I’d turn out to be.
“Ratings then used to come out only once a week, and every Friday I’d forward to my Mom how we did & she always congratulated me & reminded me to go to Mass to say THANK YOU.”
Binanggit din Online World at Social Media influencer na habang nasa hospital si Presidente Cory ay dalawang alahas lang ang hindi nito hinuhubad o madalas gamitin.
“During the last year of her life there were only 2 pieces of jewelry she never removed, this watch, and an older Baume & Mercier watch I’d given her several years prior to this.
“In Makati Medical, she still wore this watch. Maybe because she knew how precious the remaining days she had left with us were.
“When I recall this, my tears flow. Our mom said she fought Stage 4 cancer because her children lost their dad instantly, by a dictator’s assassin’s gunshot.
“Her children deserved the time to prepare themselves to be able to let her go- regardless of how painful the operations & treatments were.
“We saw how brutal her physical suffering was, and God wanted us to see her selfless love & sacrifice for us to appreciate just how blessed we were that on January 25, 1933 Maria Corazon Cojuangco was born.
“Every time I need a reminder that weakness isn’t part of my DNA, I take out this watch from my safe & I think of my mom. And whenever I look at it, I am humbled- because i was loved unconditionally, in my totality- and i’m reminded that there was nothing she wouldn’t have done for her children & following in her footsteps as a parent is now my greatest tribute of love to my mom. #FAMILY.”
Sobrang na-touch kami dahil naalala rin namin ang inang namayapa na, ‘yun lang hindi namin matandaan kung ano ang unang regalong ibinigay namin sa kanya.
At bago matulog si Kris, ”I didn’t want to sleep feeling sad & missing our Mom. So, I’m posting 2 pictures- the 1st was when their existence was still black & white because I wasn’t born yet.
“BUT Mom was really slim & so PRETTY. Swipe left & her life was now full of color because look who’s already in the picture? I love you Mom. And yes, uunahan ko na kayo, Bimb’s really a #timetraveler- sobrang magkamukha talaga kami. Thanks for praying for his recovery, he’s been obedient & healing well. And thank you for all the comments in the previous post expressing your love for my Mom. Good night from a very grateful daughter & mother. #lovelovelove.”
