No matter the worst ordeal you face, you’d always find solace and strength in the arms of a mother who unconditionally loves you through thick and thin.
And in the phenomenal series Halik, which ends its gripping narrative this week, one such mother comes to mind, Dolores Salvador Bartolome (Amy Austria)—the only character we all call “nanay” as an endearment due to the kind of love she bestows upon her son Lino (Jericho Rosales).
Viewers know how much pain and suffering Lino endured, particularly his wife’s betrayal and unfaithfulness. While such could lead to desolation, if not total madness, one thing kept Lino sane and wieldy: his Nanay Dolor’s love—something we should emulate in our lives.
In the scenes we witness on the show, Nanay Dolor would always show that magnetic positivity that makes us see the bright side of an otherwise hideous scenario. She would lift Lino’s spirits up whatever the predicament he is in.
Of course, we would see how much Nanay Dolor fights for Lino in all his woes, especially in taking Jade to task for her infidelity after all his son had done for her. And protect Lino from being weighed down and troubled, particularly in that irksome confrontation with the mother of Ace (Sam Milby)—Helen (Almira Muhlach).
She would strengthen him, give him words of encouragement, and let him see a silver lining despite the hopelessness life brings.
Above all, she would even love the people who would hurt her and Lino—specifically Jade, whom she mentions every time as someone she had loved like her own child yet still chose the wrong path and wasted the attention she continually gave.
We all really want to have a Nanay Dolor in our lives.

How will she figure in the destiny of her son Lino?
