Happy Birthday Mommy Raqz

Happy Birthday Mommy Raqz

The best mom in the world is celebrating her birthday! Charicemania and chasters wish Mommy Raqz a very, very HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!

Here’s what Charice has to say about her mom:
Charice considers her mom as a “superwoman”. No doubt about it as most of us have seen on television, learned from the Internet and read in magazines and newspapers about how she single handedly raised up Charice and her brother Carl during and after their traumatic experiences early in her married life. Charice tells people that “Si Mommy, tagahanda ng damit, taga-make up.” [Mommy prepares my clothes and is also my make-up artist.] Raquel accompanies Charice in her singing stints here and abroad. She is always there—lucky Raquel, she is able to watch major concerts of famous world personalities, how proud she must be seeing her daughter rubbing elbows with these personalities.

The way Charice acts, deals with people, deals with her fans, remains as down to earth and as nice as possible, is all a reflection of how her mother Raquel raised her up. While Charice is up on the stage, Raquel seems to be the number 1 fan of her daughter, at the same time, she looks after her daughter’s needs, giving directions here and there, and following her when she needs to. This mother and daughter team seem to be tireless.

    To Mommy Raquel:

    You have truly served your role in helping Charice achieve this great accomplishment and you are the envy of all mothers and parents. Having risen above all the trials and endured all the pain and hardships while never failing to provide the best you could for your children, you have achieved just as much as your children have achieved. Many people, chasters or non chasters alike recognize this feat you have accomplished because of Charice’s humility today inspite of her fame and financial achievements. It is clear and undoubtedly your love and dilligence in rearing up your children in the right way and with respect and reverence to God that your family is blessed so much.

    May you enjoy the rewards with many more years and may Charice attain higher accomplishments with your love and support. You truly deserve it and what ever more is to come. God bless you and the whole family and may you all continue to be a blessing to others.

    A simple celebration, a gathering of friends; here is wishing you great happiness, a joy that never ends.

    A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip.
