Being a mother is one of the toughest yet most fulfiling roles a woman can experience in her lifetime. Once a mother, you find yourself fighting to find a balance to maintain your own identity, while being strong enough to be relied upon by a child who depends on you completely. The relationship between mother and daughter can clash at times, as with any female friends and sisters. But there is an understanding closeness of unconditional love and ongoing support. And this has definitely been passed on from generation to generation in my family.

From being a little girl full of adoration – wearing mum’s shoes, clothes and makeup to a full-grown woman going out for a coffee, a movie, a walk with your mum. A mother is the first best girlfriend that a daughter has.

I was born in the Philippines, but grew up in Melbourne, Australia; and on this Mothers’ Day, and any day for that matter, I am lucky to have a beautiful daughter (and son), a strong bond with my mother (and father), and extremely blessed to have my adorable grandmother in my life. I value them greatly. They have each unlocked a level of strength and love within me. And being Filipino, the importance of music, family and, of course, food enriches this relationship. So let’s celebrate!

Happy Mothers’ Day to all mothers, here and up above.

(Editor’s note: Singer/songwriter Czarina Lapus shares her insights about being a mum, and the bond she shares with her own mother and grandmother.)
