Hi to all the single moms here. I'm not a single mom but MY MOM is, so I just want to cheer everyone and share my mom's inspring story in here.
My mom divorced with my dad when I was 14. She has four children including me with my dad. Houswife lang siya nung una kaya wala talaga siya money to support us so she decided to work abroad and left us to our lola and tita. It was very hard to see how my family fall apart and to be seperated with my mom kasi mama's girl ako, pero naging okay naman kasi pinuno naman kami mag kakapatid ng pagmamahal ng relatives namin. Nung married pa sila ng dad ko, my siblings and I were going to private school na may pangalan talaga but then nung nag divorce sila kala namin lilipat kami ng school pero she forced us to keep going on the same school. She never missed our needs kahit na nasa abroad siya, tapos there comes a time na lahat kami pumunta na sa abroad to live with her, doon ko lang nawitness kung gaano ka laki yung sacrifice na binigay ng mom ko para sa amin.
She was living in a small apartment since she was trying to save money for us. Her life routine was to work and sleep talaga. She burried herself to work para hindi niya kami mamiss. Just thinking that my mom spent couple of christmas and her birthdays alone in that small apartment breaks my heart. Kahit na hirap na hirap siya never niyang pinapakita sa amin na umiiyak siya (except ngayon na mejo malalaki na kami mas comfortable na siya ipakita sa amin ang weak side niya since she can depend on us now) She let me go to an expensive university here and even let me go to study abroad. For her, kami talaga ang no. priority niya in life and to give us best of everything.
I really repsect, admire and love my mom. I always feel her love for us and kahit ngayon wala pa kami naibabalik sa kanya, we definitely appreciate whe she has done for us. So lahat ng single mom there, I just like to say na all of you are beautiful and strong independent women and I respect all of you with that. In time, maririnig niyo rin yan sa mga anak niyo and I just hope to hear that everything was worth it
By the way, my mom is in a relationship now with different man and she really looks happy now
When the right time comes, all your sacrifices will come back to you as big fat blessings.
