When I was told to go home because Mom wasn't doing any good, I was able to buy a ticket within four hours and the flight taking place in the next 24 hours. Immediately informed my superior that I won't be reporting for work anymore. The whole time I endured my almost 24-hour flight, I was preoccupied with thoughts of how I would react seeing mom in her most difficult situation. The moment I saw her, my heart got crumpled because she was indeed suffering. I wanted to cry but I didn't want her to see me cry. I held back my tears trying not to let them fall. I was very much happy when she extended her hand, acting like she's gonna hug me. Since she can't do it herself, I lowered my body so I could hugged and embraced her. I then kissed her too many times. I really wanted to cry but I was just trying to be strong. Seeing my mom in that state did break my heart. It's way too much for her to bear, yet she was trying to be brave still. The only thing I could do at that time was to kiss her because I was also in so much pain having to see her in pain.
Really a saddening story that causes me a heartache whenever I remember it.
I am at loss for words now. I didn't know what to say. My mom's physical health condition is what preoccupies my mind for the last two weeks. Time seemed to take sides with me because I had days off for more than a week now but thinking about my mom's physical condition just crumples my heart and shakes the whole of me.
It is hard for someone like me who's been worlds apart from her. It is just frustrating for me that I am here and she's there. I immersed into distractions most of the time but still at the end of the day, I can't help but think about my mom.
I love my mom so much. She is my life. She considers me her one precious gem and I consider her as my very precious gem, too! It just hurts me so much that she's suffering from her sickness.
Prayers is what I am offering to my mom right now.
I am fervently praying for her to be brave enough to fight.
Welcome back toSunday Stealingwhich originated onWTIT: The Blogauthored by Bud Weiser. Here we will steal all types of memes from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent memes. You may have heard of the expression, “honor amongst thieves”. In that age-old tradition, we try to credit the blog that we stole it from and we will “fess up” to the blog owner where we stole the meme. We also provide a link to the victim's meme. (It's our way of saying "Thanks!") Sometimes we edit the original meme, to make it more relevant to our global players, to challenge our players, to select the best questions, or simply to make it less repetitive from this new meme or recently asked questions from a previously featured meme. Let's go!!!
