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 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. 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 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 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.
“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,
Respect your parents
I have read this story around 16 years back and could present it during our class assembly in the year 2006 or 07. Everyone appreciated it.
Shame on you whoever you are..may your mom’s soul RIP.
Bro when I tell you I cried 😭😭
this is a really touching story!
When you look into your mother’s eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on this earth.” “A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.” “Life doesn’t come with a manual, it comes with a mother.” “The best place to cry is on a mother’s arms.

Everyone should respect their parents.
Your parents are also ageing day by day and they also need their children.
Respect, Love, care & attention

Be nice to everyone you know. You never know what will happen the next day. They might die. Then you’ll feel bad for being so mean.
Sometimes, put yourself in other people’s shoes.
Only a mother can do this for their children.
Every mother is beautiful, we should give them respect and a lot of love always.

Be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor.your parents will always remain ur parents,whether rich or poor,Plz RESPECT them regardless of their behaivour
This is really a very heart touching story … Salute to that mom who gave her eye to her child … Wonderful story …
Parents are always good to their children. but sometime they have to suffer because of their children. these children does not deserve to be a good child. it’s very bad.
Really true, respect, love your parents always. we can’t ever give them back for what they have done for us, So if we can’t spread love and happiness, we have no right to bring sorrow in their lives
Love Mom Dad Forever … :]
This is a heart touching story. Now a days so many people leaving their parents in old age homes when they are becoming old. This story becomes a lesson to who leave there parents in old age homes and tells the importance of his/her parents

I miss my mother very much.
I dreamt of giving her a happy life when I grow up, But she left me before I do it for her.
But I know she is watching both of us.
So, I decided to be a good daughter, student and a good person so that she will be proud and angles in the heaven praise for her cultures she given to her children.
This is a beautiful story and really heart touching….
This story made me cry..

Le Loi Primary School won the competition.

That was the most touching story I have ever heard
Every mom love their children. If she don’t love, she is not a mom at all.
Really heart touching.
Always moms are great. Good story
I love this story ??
This story is really heart touching. I couldn’t prevent my self crying when I read. Indeed it is a great lesson so, it needs to be spreaded and its rewards surely be added to author and to one who shares. My mom is my life. My father another divine gift. Pray for my father and keep my mom on my eyes.
Thanks for sharing. We have found a great declamation piece for my son 🙂
It Is Too Touching
Such a bad child ?
This was really a heart touching story.
omg. I am a therapist and I used this story to jumpstart Group Therapy today. All men, most from prison and there was hardly a dry-eye in the place. This story contains so many essential elements of love and sacrifice. Wonderful. Absolutely wonderful.
Heart touching story…❤
Very heart touching story. I am shocked to read the behaviour of her son. This story should spread to the maximum specially among kids and youth. Thanks
It touched me dearly. But, whatever happened to you and your family? Did you ever want to apologize to her? I really did enjoy this. That is so cool of your mom!
It was such a heart touching story. It tells us that if our mother or our father says something it only about to make our future better and to make us as high level person
Very very very sad, guyz lets respect our parents
Let us love our parents.
Please care and love your parents
This was a really touching story!
