A reminder of how much your Mother loves you.
A son wants to bring his Mother into the forest and leave her there to fend for herself because her Mother is terminally ill and he is too tired to take care of her.
Leading her through the thick of the forest, he noticed that his Mother breaks every branch that they passed by.
Curious, he ask his Mother why is she breaking the branches?
The Mother answered her son loving: “Son, I break the branches as a guide for you to follow so that you won’t get lost on the way out.”Translated from Filipino story: Isang paalala kung gaano kayo kamahal ng inyong ina..
