Cantan Sambali ni Nanay Openg

1 Sep

Naynay tana congco, lolo catatangis

No sicay cayna biyay a maisip-isip

Siay luwa sa mata mantulo mapilit

Bana sa labi mon bigla mon inalis  

Ayte moyna kari, ayte mo inimbi

A pamilabi ta tan pamikawili

Hino ya cot orin  labas a babaye

A namiwan mon maigot nin labi  

Mangibat sa wanin cakoyna mangoman

Makilabi-labi maparas manglingwan

Ta no maisip-isip tan mapapanumtuman

Siay luwa sa mata, permin  balayabay.  

Mangibat sa wanin cayco na umanon

Makilabi-labin maganap a nakom

Ta no maisip-isip tan mapapanumtuman

Siay luwa sa mata, permi yan andaloy  

Siay canakoman ko, alangan ya comon

Ta masubot abrian a buboy

Tagarilya dila, kulop kon man-goygoy

Sa calak-an moyo sa kongco mampangimaton  

Cayco comon magwa, nacom koy masubot

Magcanta sa sayte, o campo nical ngod

Anggan cantan bungat, ambo nin maganos

Malayop a oras, caldungan kan say-ngot  

Cayco comon magawa, nacom ko tan buboy

Umarap sa campo ta ambo marunong

Nakaragdag congko, nakapatpol nacom

Galang yay nanugo, wangcon balangunon.

“Thanks God, I am still alive.”

15 Jul

Thanks God, I am still alive,
Coz I have the mission to survive,
And have the human rights for life.
They need my presence and tender, loving care,
Thus, they always ready to support my basic needs.

Thanks God, I am still alive,
To breathe the fresh air and hear the sound of the wind,
To see the raindrops falling on the green leaves,
To smell the favorite foods on the table,
And ready to eat fruits and drink milk any time.

Thanks God, I am still alive.
To hear the Holy Mass every Sunday,
To strengthen my faith on Him and receive His blessings,
To glorify and praise Him because of the wonderful things,
That He had given to me including my own life.

(Zambal prayer recited by my 92-year old mother, Teofila Mas Meron)

Salve, Santa Marian ari

Ina a mapaengangaro

O marunong, maipangangaro

Ipasisingaro mo kami

Ha masantan ina nan Dios

Pigaw kami comana, makinabang

Ha mablin taw tipan ni Jesukristo. Amen

 

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day

You are a great mother to me.

Because you gave me life and showed me the world;

You are a special mother to me.

Because you care and love me tenderly;

You are a wonderful teacher to me.

Because you teach and guide me all the time;

With that, I wish you a great, special and wonderful Mother’s Day.

Ang Iyong Nanay (Your Mother)

Sa pagdamay at pagtulong mo sa kapwa, ang iyong Nanay ay natutuwa sa iyong mga gawi at gawain

Sa iyong mga gawain na kaaya-aya, ang iyong Nanay ay lagging masaya sa iyong pinapakita.

Sa iyong pinapakitang sipag at pag-aabot ng kita para sa iyong ama’t ina at pamilya, sa kanilang dalawa ay sadyang napakahalaga.

Mother and You

27 Mar

When was the last time your mother hugs you? When was the last time you see your mother smiling? When was the last time your mother asks or tells you something? Do you listen? Do you care or show concern? If your answer is yes, you are lucky enough.

God gave life to you. Your mother nourished that life for you. She carried you in her womb for several months. She could even smile after giving birth of a healthy baby. Sometimes, she never slept and felt anxious when you were crying if you had an illness.

As you grew older, your mother helped you to sit down, stand up and walk until you can do it by yourself. When you started to go to school, she taught you how to read, write and count things. She defended you and fought for your rights if somebody was doing wrong against you. She always provided things that you need. She advised and guided you all the time.  She felt very happy and proud whenever you achieved something or received an award. She felt sorry for you when you failed to achieve your dreams.

When you became a matured person and had your own family, your mother was always there and never left you. She took good care of your children. She helped you in doing household chores.  She felt very happy seeing her grandchildren playing, singing or dancing.  Sometimes, she threw out jokes with them.

The time passed by and your mother was getting older. Her body and mind were already deteriorating.  She often got sick. She could not sit down, stand up and walk by herself.  Your mother could no longer do the things that she used to do for you and your family when she was young.  She always felt the pains and sufferings due to her illness.

Did you feel sorry for her bad health condition? What immediate action that you did to prolong her life? Do you really love your mother? Do you really care? Do you let her go or not?
