The height of the Covid-19 pandemic has shown us how some modern Filipinas reacted to the situation at hand. This is my humble attempt at immortalizing their stories in this Pinay mommy blog. Hence, I came up with the series, Resilient Pinay Moms.
Why Resilient Pinay Moms
Resilience is one of the strongest traits of Pinay moms. We love our families fiercely and we will fight to death in order to protect them.
When the Covid-19 pandemic happened, we needed to protect our homes safe from the virus and our family healthy and strong. At the same time, we had to contend with the economic crunch. Many of us lost jobs or were forced to close our business.
As if a bitter icing on our cake, we had to deal with the depression of having to stay at home as well as the anxiety over an uncertain future. All our plans had to be altered. What will happen to our children?
Despite all those problems and challenges, the Pinay mom prevailed. Like a hawk, she watches over her home with a sharp eye. And like the Proverbs 31 woman, she also provides for her household.
In this Mommy Blog
Through Lovingly Mama, I hope to share the inspiring stories of these unsung heroes of the home. These are the strong moms who have successfully maneuvered their way through the pandemic and came out victors.
Sure, their lives and families are not perfect either. But may their stories encourage us and help up find the strength within us amidst adversity.
So these are their stories. I am merely the storyteller.
