Touching story-My one eye mom.


A very good day to all viewers,salam and my best wishes to you (all my friends),
This should be d last entry frm me ,well,i am off for a holiday perhaps after 1 month,i'll b back.

As the following essay was forwarded to me via email and i find it rather quite touching and at the bottom,i added my own view on certain aspects in life. Enjoy and don't forget to re read the whole essay once again after a few days,perhaps something might happen.

My mom only had one eye. I hated her... she was such an embarrassment.
She cooked for students & teachers to support the family.

There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came to
say hello to me.

I was so embarrassed.

How could she do this to me?
I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran out.
The next day at school one of my classmates said, "EEEE, your mom only
has one eye!"

I wanted to bury myself.
I also wanted my mom to just disappear.
I confronted her that day and said, " If you're only goanna make me a
laughing stock, why don't you just die?"

My mom did not respond...
I didn't even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because
I was full of anger.
I was oblivious to her feelings.

I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with her.
So I studied real hard, got a chance to go abroad to study.
Then, I got married.
I bought a house of my own.
I had kids of my own.
I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts, Then one day, my
mother came to visit me.
She hadn't seen me in years and she didn't even meet hergrandchildren.

When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled at
her for coming over uninvited.
I screamed at her, "How dare you come to my house and scare my
children!"

GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!"

And to this, my mother quietly answered, "Oh, I'm so sorry. I may
havegotten the wrong address,"
and she disappeared out of sight.
One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house.

So I lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip.
After the reunion, I went to the old shack just out of curiosity.

My neighbors said that she died.
I did not shed a single tear.
They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have.

"My dearest son,
I think of you all the time. I'm sorry that I came to your house and
scared your children.
I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion.
But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you.
I'm sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were
growing up.

You see........when you were very little, you got into an accident, and
lost your eye.
As a mother, I couldn't stand watching you
having to grow up with one eye.
So I gave you mine.
I was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in my
place, with that eye.

With all my love to you,
Your mother.



Always tell someone that you love them because you never know what day
will be their last, or your own. 'Someone' here doesn't just limited to your own parents but to those who care and concern about you,everyone of them. Have you ever wonder why each everyone was striving hard in their life? Because we are all afraid of what is going to come or happen tomorrow. No one knowns and should you be losing something important to you or even someone who is special to you? What can you do to prevent it?

Always seek to resolve your problems or disagreements with loved ones
because if either of you should pass on before, the one who is left alive
will have the rest of their life to ponder those unresolved feelings but
will never find closure. And closure usually brings
peace..

Go out and reach out those who are important to you,a sms or a call wouldn't hurt or take long time. Who knows if that special soul was waiting and trying to reach for you. Regretfulness stays... believe me, i am well aware of it. What sort of wounds that can't be heal? That would be the wounds in your heart,no one can heal it,and time is all it takes...it may take forever !

Always remember that you are not alone and think positively. Problems are meant to exist in life,for a grand reason which you will venture far to find the answers.
