Imelda Marcos,the Kingmaker
Mothering for Imelda Marcos
Former First Lady Imelda Marcos said that she’s always accused of being excessive. But for her, that’s what mothering is all about. She’s generous with time, effort, love, and provisions. She loves beautiful things and generous in her charity work. Her detractors are so scared of her. Even Leni Robredo said that she is scared that the Marcos family goes back to power again. Can she stop this fear in the 2022 elections? Perhaps, a disappointment for the opposition. Therefore, they better work on unity instead of separation to save themselves.
A Mother who Inspires the Nation
Imelda Marcos is a head-turner wherever she goes. Her beauty and composure can inspire people to do their best. Women just want to be like her. To have a husband like the late Ferdinand Marcos is a dream come true for many wives. Loving and nurturing for them is true love. People can only glow with the love in their hearts. Because where love goes, wealth follows.
The Kingmaker in Imelda Marcos
Imelda Marcos already made her name before she married Ferdinand Marcos. She possesses great beauty and wisdom. Her guts and determination to uplift herself complimented her husband’s quest to be President. Not that they were perfect. But they sure know how to motivate each other. Love should make people glow. Such energy can make a king out of a budding senator like her husband. Now, the son, Bongbong Marcos has a good potential to be the country’s next leader. This should ignite his mother’s ability as a kingmaker or perhaps, the mothering work for a king has been done. So, people should be wiser by looking at the mothers of future candidates.
