Another Touching Story-One Eyed Mom

Hi, here's is a very touching story, enjoy reading...

My mom only had one eye. I hated her... she was such an
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.

I confronted her that day and said, ' If you're only go 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,
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

When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled
her for coming over uninvited.

I screamed at her, 'How dare you come to my house and scare my

And to this, my mother quietly answered, 'Oh, I'm so sorry. I may
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,
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
place, with that eye.

With all my love to you,

Your mother.
