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.. May isang anak na gustong iligaw ang kanyang INA sa gubat dahil sa sakit nitong wala nang lunas at pagod na rin siyang mag-alaga dito, Ipinasan niya ang kanyang INA hanggang makarating sa kasuluksulukan ng Gubat, ngunit napansin niya na pinuputol ng kanyang INA ang bawat sanga ng Punong madaanan nila, tinanong nang Anak kung bakit niya ginagawa ito, sagot ng INA – ”Pinuputol ko ang sanga dahil ayaw kong maligaw ka sa pag uwi mo.
It’s so funny to see it from Buzzfeed’s point of view and I can totally relate to this. One doesn’t have to be a Filipino-American, I’m sure other non Filipino-American can find similarities.
