My mom made me cry

In a good way. I went with my mom last Sunday for a shopping spurt. We then had dinner at a resto and talked a bit about my work. I opened up a conversation I had with my aunt and my mom said "If ever you want to work abroad, I want you to stay with a relative. That way I can be assured." I just nodded then she added "And I can't bear having you away from me for a long time". I tried to hold my tears in but eventually it fell. I quickly wiped it away and she gave me a small piece of her muffin. People might think I'm too sensitive but as some of my fellow myLotters know, I'm adopted and I'm the only child in the family. I'm really touched and that wee moment is one of my most treasured moment EVER! I really love her

i think i am more sensitive kei, i was in tears while i was reading your post. i am easily touched by these stories. i do not know why maybe it's because this is just me. i am with my parents but i am easily softened with stories about family. we are not going through a big problem. "wala lang" i just love them soo much. it's okay to be in tears kei, that shows that you are touched and that's a sincere feeling. cheers kei!

I do agree with you. Especially since I'm an only child (and adopted at that), I'm really touched with my mom's words. I really appreciate those small talks.

Hi kei, This post almost made me cry Your mom is so loving and I am sure she'll be lonely without you around. Conversations like this with parents can easily make me cry too.

That's just so true. I think one of the main reason why I teared up is because I'm not expecting out conversation to end up in that manner :P

Thanks dear! Glad that it made you happy ;) My mom and I don't share such "mushy" sentiments quite a lot so when it does appear, I get all soft inside xD

Hi Keihimekawa! Your post reminded me about my mom. My mom and I have different tastes in almost everything. We don't always meet eye to eye (of course, that doesn't mean we argue... She was the queen of the house! Nobody could argue with her). It has been four years since my parents migrated to the US. At first, I was happy with my new-found freedom. But as time passes by, I realized that even though I am already an adult and have my own kid, I still need my mom to support me. When I call her, I would make "sumbong" to her my dilemma at work or tell her about my problems about raising my daughter, and so on and so forth. My mom never fails to give the best advice.

That's just so true. Maybe I can't relate with the "being a mother" comment but I really do agree with you that moms never fails to give best advices. Same goes with my mom. She also have the last say inside the house and there are quite a lot of things which we don't agree on but she's always there to support me. Sermons are ALWAYS there but behind those, I know she cares a lot :D Thanks for the comment!

Hi, Mothers are the best gifts in our world. you shall knew that exactly when you get married and have a kids. We can not give her a small things, compared with what she do for us. Give your mother all love in her live, to gain your kids love in future.

I am not adopted but I have the same sentiment you have with your mom. I love her dearly and whenever she says she misses me or loves me gets me teary eyed because I know other girls who do not have an awesome friendship with their mom the way I do. Im glad to hear you teared up with your moms words.

I do share stories with my mom but I really don't tell everything to her. I tend to keep personal problems to myself but if I feel that I have moved on, that's the time I'll tell her. It never fails to make me teary eyed whenever my mom tells me that she misses me. I really am grateful that she's the one who adopted me. She never made me feel that I'm adopted. There are times when she would say hurtful things but I do understand that those are "spur of the moment" thing. She'll apologize and I'll do the same :)

Oh you were so blessed for having a mom like her, having those tears doesn't mean you were that sensitive it is a proof the you value and love you mom that much. I really admire you for being a good child to them even you were adopted. Treasure every moment you have with them and always be thankful for having them.

I'll do just that :D And yes, I truly agree with you that I love her so much. Thanks a lot for the kind words :D It's the least that I can do as a child and as a person whom they (my foster mom and dad) adopted and whole-heartedly raised. Not even once did I feel that I'm adopted.

I'm happy for you that you have such a loving mother and she worries about you so much. Well, make sure that you appreciate her and treat her nicely in the future. You should always treat her as your real mother as well. After all, those things are not important no more. isn't it?

That's just so true. I treat her like my real mom though it's sometimes a bit difficult for me especially since my real mom lives with us. They tend to argue A LOT especially when it comes to getting my attention. I try to give what I can to both of them and I keep on hoping that there won't be jealousy over them. I love them both so much and it hurts me to see them fight over my attention :(

Hello there! Tears well when I read your blog. I miss my mom especially if it's December. She's gone when I was in 4th grade. I still wanted more of her. She's the best mom that I could ever asked. Good thing that you have a good relationship with your mom. I appreciate that. There are some kids today that just don't mind their parents. People all over the world should know how to value their mom!

I'm sure your mom misses you too. I totally agree with you. Yes there are times when i argue with my mom but in the end, we always talk things out. Kids should show appreciation to their parents as early as possible before it's too late for them to do so. They might regret it in the future if they don't. Thanks for the reply :) I appreciate it!

Aww... that is so sweet! You can't leave her now, can you? I guess that even though kids are all grown up, to parents, they'll forever be their kids. I feel happy that you feel loved by your adoptive mom. I have an adopted brother, and though he has some differences with the family sometimes, he knows that I love him a lot.

Oh what a beautiful moment. A mother's love is really magic. It can ease your burden. Somehow, without meaning to, she knows just how to shake the blues away. Also, the way she supported you and somehow manage to let you know how she feel inside is powerful. That is love and concern for a child. :)
