How to Greet the Most Important Person In the World - our Mother-- on Mother's Day

Yeah, I know it's kind of late, but it's better than never.  Every year, we devote the second Sunday of May to the most important person in our life, our mother.  On this day, we show how much we appreciate her for her sacrifices to bring us, her children, up properly.  Her sacrifices and love for her children started upon her conception of them.  She also could not contain her happiness upon knowing that she is carrying her child in her womb.  Our mothers are the most selfless individuals on earth.    So it is but fitting to honor her on this particular day.  Here are some expressions you can use to show how much you care:

Happy Mother's Day -  Malipayong Pagsaulog sa Adlaw sa mga Inahan

Some Honorific Terms for Mother:

Please accept my gift for you -  Palihog dawata ang akong pahalipay para nimo.   

I don't have material gifts for you but I promise to take care of you when you grow old -  Wala akoy materyal nga pahalipay para nimo, piro magsaad ko nga amumahon tika inig ka tiguwang nimo.

Just remember that some gifts are more important than any material gifts.  It's the thought that counts.
