The recent celebration of Mothers’ Day has got most of us swooning over delightful tributes given by doting children from all walks of life to their beloved mothers.

At least for a moment there, the children (and when we say children, we mean especially today’s young people who invade our households with their millennial principles of politically-correct, gender-equal, free-speech dictum) revealed a side of them that puts premium on what’s real and sincere in connecting to their beloved mothers – contrary to the cyber relationships of the modern world.

Mothers’ Day this year, thanks to the geniuses behind PLDT, came to be a sincere expression of real love by real people, real emotions that lead to real connections.

Indeed, the telephone company’s campaign #connectforreal was an astounding success. The video ads spoke in volumes about what the children wanted and needed to say to their mothers. It also served as a rightful jump-off point for the campaign that netted a lot of beautiful, endearing and fun memories for the parent from their children.

Even celebrities jumped on the bandwagon and shared their bit of the private world they live in. TV and movie actress Isabel Oli, herself a new mother; expressed appreciation for her mother Veronica. Up and coming theater actress Mariella Laurel, daughter of TV-movie-theater actress Ayen Laurel, celebrated the person her mother is via Facebook posts.

Other celebrities who showed their love for their mothers during the occasion were Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, Cacai Velasquez-Mitra, Tweetie de Leon Gonzales, Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Rachel Peters, PiaWurtzbach’s sister Sarah Wurtzbach, Camille Prats, and Bettina Carlos.
