Be Inspired

 Someone wrote,

 My mom only had one eye. I hated her. She was such
an embarrassment. She cooked for students and
teachers to support the family. There was this 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
gonna 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 boughta 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 her
grandchildren. 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 have gotten 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. It Reads:- "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." The son burst into tears, but it was too late.

Never neglect your MOM, Because she is a blessing. One
day you will cry when she will be gone. Shower her
with kindness.
