[S]tory of a Mother with one eye

Story of a Mother with one eye

Son's Statement:
" 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
I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran
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.
So 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 to
Singapore 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
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!
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 in Singapore. 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. "
Mom's Letter:
"My dearest son,
I think of you all the time. I'm sorry that I came to
Singapore 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 my love to you,
Your mother.
P/s-love ur mother.. please.. with full 0f respect.
