Dear All,

Came across this touching story .......


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 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.

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 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 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


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 neighbours said

that she died. I did not shed a single tear.

They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have.

''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 embarrasment 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 that was seeing a

whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye.

With my love to you,

Your mother.
