She is our strongest ally yet our greatest critic. She’s our best friend, our greatest teacher, our mentor, and a lot more roles being supported by one person. And she’s the only one who could do it. No back-up, proxy or substitution.
She is our mother. The one who brought us up in this world. The person who is always behind us, supporting and guiding you even in years that you thought you can already take care of yourself.
And this Mother’s Day, May 08, 2016, here in Axiem we wanted to pamper our Moms through our employees. We created the “Axiem Loves Moms” Instagram promo – where they will feature their Mom on an Instagram Post with an answer of “How are they empowered by their Mothers”.
We’ll have 3 winners who will get 1,000php worth of SPA Gift certificates for them and their mothers. For them to take a break from work and have a pamper-moment with their Moms.
We received employee entries with heartwarming descriptions of their Mothers. We have set criteria for judging on their entries and submitted it to the Management Team for the final decisions on who will win.
After careful deliberations, we already had 3 winners – 3 employees who proudly honored their Moms in Social Media. Here are their posts.

"A number of efforts have been made to describe families in which parents and children meet their societal and cultural responsibilities to each other. When family life is a mutual growth experience for both parents and children, the results are strong families that contribute not only to the development of their members but to the development of their communities and society as well.
Our families revealed mutual respect between family members who have coherent positive views of life expressed through overt displays of affection and open communication between family members. My mom always gives clear directions and enforce reasonable limits by emphasizing the positives rather than the negatives.
My mom totally is not enmeshed with our lives. This is why as a result, me and my siblings have self-esteem, a sense of autonomy,and well-developed self concepts. My mom has a clear sense of morality that is demostrated through her words and actions. She taught us how to have a sense of meaning and purpose in life often related to a spiritual orientation with a trusting, optimistic outlook on life.
My mom didn't let me do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted -- until I was old enough to handle my life.
She did not shower me with things and more things. For some reason, she didn't believe it served any useful purpose.She never pass up an opportunity to teach me the value of money and the benefits (both physical and moral) of hard work.She did not tell me what friends to choose or which career to follow. She decided I was the best judge of that. She never failed to listen to me when i had a problem, nor did my mom refuse to give me sound advice when I asked. My mom is really an amazing woman. She did not try to spare me the pain of making mistakes when I was trying to grow up. At the same time, she left no doubt about her love for us." @axiemph #axiemmoms #ilovemymom #happymothersday #inay #mommy #mama #mudra #iloveyou #ina #bestmom #splashisland

"I'm strong because you always tell me I can do it. I'm confident because you make feel that I'm the best. Behind every strong woman is a MOM who trained her to be one and made her believe she's capable of doing almost everything. I love you Mame! Happy Mother's day!" #AxiemMoms

"She is an inspiration to many and to me, to get up and strive hard to be the best that I can be. She is the gravity that pulls me back whenever I fall and keeps my both feet on the ground. She is the light at the end of the tunnel that guides me everytime. She is the smile on my face and the reason for all my reasons.
Mama, I may not show you and tell you everyday how much I love you and how much you mean to me. But in my heart, you will always be the only woman in my life.
I thank God for you and I thank you for everything. I love you and I wish you the best health and God's blessing upon you."
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! #SuperMom #AxiemMoms
