Now that she is a parent herself, Alice Dixson recalled the sacrifices that her late mother made for her.
On her Instagram page, Alice shared, "Remembering my mom as I am now a mom. The stories she told; how she and her siblings had to find different ways to survive sa province from selling halo2, fish, to cutting hair—all while as children and young adults busy sa farm."
Alice described her mom as "strong, business minded, beautiful and sexy."
"She wore her hair short and her 2 front teeth gold rimmed, walang sinabi ang mga rappers sa kanya. She was known to all as mommy, tiya and Ate Coring," she added.
The actress relayed that her mother was already 37 and her dad was already 43 when they had her.
"During those times in the mid ‘60s, those ages were medyo late na mag start ng family—but they persevered because they wanted so much to have a child together. May parallelisms ang motherhood journeys namin," she stated.
Alice said that her mom did everything to conceive.
"She said they did a lot including the hilot thing, at ang pag sayaw sa Obando hehe, how menopause baby na ako & how I was conceived on our farm—under a coconut tree daw lol," she said.
Alice expressed her appreciation for her mother and remarked that whoever she is today is because of her mother.
"My 1st Mother’s Day passed and thought of how we celebrated for her. Ngayon ko lang talaga na appreciate at naramdaman ang sacrifices nya, all the love. And even if she didn’t get to meet her 8th apo in person, I know she’s watching over our little family," she stated.
"Whatever I am today it’s because of you... I hope to pass all the best qualities to my daughter," Alice added.
