Read this article first, then come back and read my sharing….
I got the article from my brother who sent it to us siblings with the message: “This is poignant”.
I replied with this message:
Poignant it is.
I remember one afternoon in Happy Homes when I was around 6 or 7 years old.
Nag-siesta kami ni mom.
Then, as a kid does, I asked her point blank “Why are you crying?”
I don’t remember her exact words, but I remember she brushed of the topic and the tear in her eye.
I shared that story to a friend a few weeks ago. It made me think what mom’s troubles were that time.
These days, I still get the chance to sleep beside mom and dad. I relish that time, I hug them while I sleep ;-) .
Next time, I’ll *watch* them as they sleep.
