A Mothers love is Forever

My mom only had one eye. I hated her. She was such an shame. She cooked for students and tchers to support the family.One day during elementary school 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 terrible look and ran out. The next day at school one of my classmates said, “ your mom only has one eye!”.I felt ashamed. I also wanted my mom to just disappr. I go to her that day and said, “If you’re only gonna make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die?”My mom did not say anything.In anger I did not think what I said. I did not want to live with her So, I studied rl 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 yrs and she didn’t even meet her grandchildren.When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled at her for coming over uninvited. I cried at her, “How dare you come to my house and scare my children! GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!”

My mother quietly answered, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address.” – and she disappred 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 hut just out of curiosity.My neighbors said that she died. I did not shed a single tr. They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have.

“My drest 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 hrd 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.”
A mothers love is forever; time, distance, hardship...all fall before the strength of her love.-->
