Today (Sunday,Philippines), Mother's day is celebrated in the country with messages filling up all medias. TV shows are also packed with Mother's day special.

Mother's Day is celebrated every first Sunday of May here in Philippines while second Sunday to US, Australia, Japan and others. While other countries celebrated Mother's Day in a fixed day like Mexico and Albania celebrates every May 8, Russia November 28, Poland May 26, Indonesia December 22.

In most countries, Mother's Day is celebrated with greeting their mothers and giving them gifts, some people read poems to them, sing songs. Whatever ways you choose, you should never forget to greet and thank your mother. Number one reason, she made all sacrifices in this world just to bring you here. Even in Islam preachings, according to Prophet Mohammad (SAW), if only we are allowed to praise aside from Allah, then we should be also praying to our mother.

Today, I will be greeting Happy mother's day to my mother and to my wife mother of my son Izian. Love you both.

As title of blog says, I will be posting here two songs I know that are so popular during Mother's Day. One is A Song for Mama by Boyz Two Men and Mama by Spice Girls.

A Song for Mama lyrics

You taught me everything
Everything you've given me
I'll always keep it inside
You're the driving force in my life, yeah

There isn't anything
Or anyone that I could be
And it just wouldn't feel right
If I didn't have you by my side

You were there for me to love and care for me
When skies were gray
Whenever I was down
You were always there to comfort me

And no one else can be
What you have been to me you will always be
You will always be the girl
In my life for all times

Mama, Mama you know I love you
Mama, Mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like tears from the stars
Mama I just want you to know lovin' you is like food to my soul
Yes it is, yes it is, oh, yes it is, yes it is, yes it is oh

You're always there for me
Have always been around for me even when I was bad
You showed me right from my wrong
Yes you did

And you took up for me
When everyone was downin' me
You always did understand
You gave me strength to go on

There was so many times
Looking back when I was so afraid
And then you come to me and say to me
I can face anything

And no one else can do
What you have done for me
You'll always be, you will always be
The girl in my life, ooh oh

Mama, Mama you know I love you
Mama, Mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like tears from the stars
Mama I just want you to know lovin' you is like food to my soul

Never gonna go a day without you
Fills me up just thinkin' about you
I'll never go a day
Without my mama

Mama, Mama you know I love you
Mama, Mama you're the queen of my heart
Your love is like tears from the stars
Mama I just want you to know lovin' you is like food to my soul

Lovin' you is like food to my soul, oh yeah
You are the food to my soul, yes you are

Mama lyrics by Spice Girls

She used to be my only enemy and never let me be free
Catching me in places that I knew I should'nt be
Every other day I crossed the line I didn't mean to be so bad
I never thought you would become the friend I never had
Back then I didn't know why
Why you were misunderstood
So now I see through your eyes
All that you did was love
Mama I love you.Mama I care
Mama I love you . Mama my friend. You're my friend
I didn't want to hear it then but I'm not ashamed to say it now
Every little thing you said and did was right for me
I had a lot of to think about,about the way I usedto be
Never had a sense of my responsibility
Back then I didn't know why
Why you were misunderstood
So now I see through your eyes, all that you did was love
Mama, I love you. Mama, I care
Mama, I love you. Mama ,my friend. You're my friend
But now I'm sure I know why,
Why you were misunderstood
So now I see through your eyes
All I can give you is love is love
Mama I love you. Mama, I care
Mama, I love you. Mama, my friend,You're my friend
Mama, I love you, Mama ,I care
Mama, I love you, Mama, my friend, You're my friend
