OFWs have the hardest job among others for they are willing to leave their families to work abroad just to provide them a comfortable and convenient life as possible.
After 20 years of hard work and sacrifices, finally, it’s all been paid off.
An inspiring story of an OFW who was unaware that she was able to support her children’s studies who are now all professionals.
She had brought up a Certified Public Accountant, a licensed teacher, a registered nurse, a pharmacist and midwife, a civil engineer and registered master plumber, and soon to have an Information Technologist.
Hans thanked all the friends of his mother who stood with her in times of her financial challenges. He also mentioned his mother’s employer, Mr.Lee and expressed how grateful he was for he has been so kind to them in granting cash advances to his mom in times of financial shortages.
Above all, Hans expressed his deep gratitude for his mother who worked hard for 20 long years just to give them better and successful lives. He said:
“It’s your graduation day, mama and it’s time to go home!”
“We love you, mom!” he added.
“It’s time to go home, ma!”.
As a Thanksgiving treat, Hans surprised his mother with an all-paid expense ASEAN trip for which Singapore is their first stop.
We hoped that this story will make people realize how difficult it is for every OFW to be away from their family and later on, there will be a “Graduation Day” from all their sacrifices.
His original post read:
Hi Ma, it’s time to go home! Finally, dumating na ang araw ng Graduation mo! I know excited kana at Susunduin na kita dahil overstaying kana dito sa Hongkong. I still remember I was still 6 years old nang iwan mo kaming pitong magkakapatid para makipagsapalaran dito sa HK to give us a better life and good education na paulit ulit mong sinasabi na yun lang maipapamana mo
Sa aming magkkapatid. Galit na galit ako sayo noon ng iwan mo kami kasi diko pa naiintindihan lahat why you have to leave us. Di naging madali ang lahat para sa atin dahil maraming pagsubok ang dumaan at halos magkawatak watak pa tayo. I couldn’t imagine how hard it is for you makatanggap ng masasamang balita galing from Pinas habang nagpapakapagod ka. Di rin madali ang Nagpalipat lipat tayo ng tirahan at ng school.
After 20 years of working hard and sacrifice heto na nagbunga narin ang pangarap mo para sa aming lahat. Look at us now, di mo namamalayan you already have produced an Certified Public Accountant, A Licensed Teacher, A Registered Nurse, A Pharmacist and Midwife, A Civil Engineer and Registered Master Plumber, and soon to have an Information Technologist. Looking back, di madali ang lahat para sa atin, marami tayong paghihirap na pinagdaanan. Sa pangungutang mo kung kani kanino para may pangtuition kami at sa laging pagadvance kay Mr. Lee na wala ka nang swinesweldo makabayad lang ng utang. Ma, we owe you a lot. Di kami makakarating kung nasaan man kami ngayon kung di dahil sayo.
We are so blessed to have a mom like you na hindi sumuko sa amin. Di tayo pinabayaan ni Lord at andyan lang sya ginagabayan tayo para maging matatag at matupad ang pangarap mo para sa amin at ngayon may magandang buhay na at may masasayang pamilya na ang iba. Gusto ko din magpasalamat sa mga kaibigan ni mama na walang sawang tulungan sya sa hirap at sa ginhawa. The best po kayo Maraming Salamat! Kaya Ma, Today, your Graduation has come and finally you’ll be free from stress and work. In behalf of my siblings I am congratulating you! Job well done my mom! It’s been a long hard years kaya It’s time for you to enjoy life naman. Kaya before you go home for good, let’s have an ASEAN TRIP .All expense paid! We love you Mom! So First Stop, Singapore!
