What moms really want for Mother's Day

Image
Motherhood is a tough 24-hour job, no pay, no days-off, most often unappreciated and yet resigning is impossible.
This Mother’s day, I have decided to talk asked 100 Moms to ask them of what they wish to receive on this special day, to at least give back on all the hard work they have done for the family. And here are the Top 10 responses.




1. 30-minute shower: With 38.5°C temperature in the Philippines right now, wouldn’t you want to run in the shower and take a long, relaxing bathe? The scientists believe that when people feel isolated they take hot showers as a form of self-therapy, or self-soothing.

2. Love letter – In this world full of social media – where it is very convenient to greet your Mothers through posts, these Moms said they would still feel your love through the old school, heartfelt love letters.

3. Chocolates – Eating certain types of chocolate in small amounts can be good for you. The cocoa in chocolate contains antioxidants, which are considered “heart healthy”. Beca…
