Cool Mother’s Day story… early am flight and I’m sitting across from my mom, when out of the blue she looks around the plane, then looks at me and says, “Son, I can’t believe the life I have… grandma and grandpa would be so proud”. I asked her, “Are you happy ma?”. Just then the flight attendant placed my mom’s breakfast down on the table and my mom said to me, “Am I happy?.. I used to worry about how I was going to buy groceries for us and now I just had my breakfast placed down in front of me”. She bursts into tears and says, “Yes, son I couldn’t be happier”.
This is the woman who when I was 14yrs old we were evicted out of our apartment in Hawaii because we couldn’t afford the weekly $180 rent. At this moment I’m shaking my head and smiling quietly (as my mom blows her nose;), because she just told me she’s happy. And y'all know when our parents tell us they’re happy, it’s so satisfying for us, because it means we’ve done a good job for them as their kids. Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing deserving mama’s out there. And Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing mom who will no doubt kill me for posting this crying pic. #EnjoyBreakfastMom #GratefulTears #TryNotToCryInTheEggs
