we may not be lucky to have our man to stand beside us but surely our child is more than enough to fill out that empty space in our heart.. i had a financial crisis the past month so i've been crying every night how would my son who's only 6 yrs old and i survive the crisis.. as we lay in bed, he heard me sobbing then asked me " mom why are you crying? i don't want to see hear you crying it makes me sad and i mean really really sad :( please don't cry" then he hugged me and wipe my tears with his pillow... he pour a lot of inspiration in me.. my heartaches turned into happiness he made me smile the whole night

When the father of my son and I seperated, our son is barely 4 mos. old obviously he cant talk but his gesture made me cry. He saw me crying as I looked at him then suddenly he wept my tears and I can see in his eyes as if he was saying "thats alright mom I am still here".

i went back to penang, malaysia (my hometown) for a short visit. I was driving when Catriona (the little girl that my mom babysat) suddenly said 'i hope you will live here forever and never go back to Singapore'. It was so heartwarming. The reason she asked me to stay may be because she can go out and have fun, all the nice presents and skipping homework but to me, it meant everything!

I need to have a child first before she can tell me things that can make me cry.

i dont have any chil coz i am still single but i have a story to tell you guys that i think will make you cry.. maybe some already knows this story but still i just want to share this to you guys. this story was told to me by my friend. ok here it is... The story is about a father who has a 5 year old son. The father was cleaning his brand new car in their garden while his son was on the other side of the car playing alone. The father was done cleaning the other side of the car so he went to the other side of it to clean it but suddenly he saw his son writing something in the car's door using a stone that results to some scratches. The father was very angry and he punished his son by hitting his son's hands with a piece of thick wood until the hands of his son was really in pain and almost break the bones. the child was crying out loud and the father was shock on what he did so he run his child to the nearest hospital and the doctor told him that his son's hands was really damaged. The father felt really sad. He went back to his car to calm himself down and he notice the the scratches that his son made. When he saw the scratches, tears starts to fall from his eyes. The scratches in his car was really not a scratch but a message from his son. His son wrote "I Love You Daddy."

I was cooking supper one time and becoming aggitated with doing 5 things at the same time being in a time crunch and moodiness,i ended up cranking it out at my 4 1/2 year old daughter.I didnt mean to snap at her when she asked me to play,but i didnt have time.:(She ran in the livingroom crying,which made me start crying and i said mommy was sorry.She came over to me and out of the blue said "mommy even when your bad sometimes,i still love you more than a BIG ice cream sunday with LOTS of sprinkles on top!".I started crying all the more because i know its the one thing that she loves alot,plus alot of sprinkles!LOL.My little angel.:):)

hehe,crying for moving moment from children is so moved, but in my opinion going through economic crisis has a lot of methods,i don't know,cz i never encounter a economic crisis,i havn't any good ideas,but i think the attitude of always trying best will live smoothly,sharing thoughts,and sharing thoughts of earning is the best way living in good life,i think a lot of people of us regard that earning money is a type of attitude of lifestyle,earning consistantly,and achieving consistantly,so good..

last night i was really sick and my husband had to work. So, my son and i were home alone. i was laying on the couch and told him that mommy needs to lie down because she is sick. every half hour or so, he would come to me and give me a big hug and say , "are you all better now mommy?" i thought it was so sweet that he wanted to take care of mommy and make her all better.
