My encounter with an elderly woman today. by Sonnobax15(m): 10:29pm On Jul 03, 2023
Today was such a great day,and one I wouldn't wish to forget in a hurry.....I had an encounter with an elderly woman who came all the way from Benin city just to bring a container of soup she prepared for her son who's been residing in Ughelli, Delta state........Her reason was that this son of hers complained about how much he had missed his mother's soup because it's been over a year since he left Benin for Delta.......So she took the pains, irrespective of the distance barrier and insecurity,to cook her son's favorite soup and bring it down here for her son...I was really down, emotionally;wondering how wonderful a mother's love could be.....I know my own late mother would have done the same thing for me if she were alive sad.

Well, before she left,she also gave her son #500 cheesy. Just imagine the show of love cheesy. A man in his early 40's experiencing true love cheesy. I couldn't hold back the tears that already found its way into my eyes sad. Indeed, mother's love is second to none...... A day I will never love to forget cheesy

That woman obviously doesn't belong to this generation of slay mamas and tiktok set of women,
She's among the last set of her kind.

God bless every great mothers out there.

Some of these things don't just go away so easily, it takes time.

Whenever I'm around, my mum will always ask me before I leave the house for hangout "the cash on you, will it be enough for you?" and looking at her, you'll see she is ready to reach her purse for cash or debit card.

That's something she'd done for years and now, she finds it hard to stop even with all the realities before her.

The man might have given his mum some money but that didn't stop her from giving him that 500 naira. It's a routine she might have been used to.

My maternal grandpa still remained food for me the last time I saw him and it was embarrassing because I went with a friend but I ate the food to make him happy.

The bond between good parents and their children is beyond understanding, they can go to any length for their children but if u jam a bad parent that see taking care of their children as a burden yet they produce every year, u will imagine where that thinking faculty came from.

I'm sincerely embarrassed that you have to go through the pain of explaining these common things!
Please note that - not everyone has got the reference, or rare privilege of growing up around their elderly relatives so they can't really relate.

May God bless good parents....they are the real salt of the earth. No matter how old a son or daughter is, he/she will always be his/her parent's child.

Bro,you shouldn't have gone through the stress of explaining to him... He's only trying to be sarcastic, that's all.

Who was the photographer that actually took this picture.
Or was it the mere imagination of men or a simple pictorial illustrative drawing.

So, you turned down your mother's food every time you visited her for those 16years simply because your wife is a better cook?
Or was it that she didn't offer you food?
Do you eat her food now?
What changed?

Nope. Did not turn down. Was not usually around at food time when I go to visit my mum and never specifically asked for food when around . Growing up, I was hard to please with food. My wife is simply good!

When I was still home at 27, my mom would give me money for bike, and give me money whenever she feels like. I was working from home and I was doing fine for myself. I am still owing her seff from the moneys I took that I never paid back. She has the list of the money I collected, I paid some and never paid others, she has a provision store so its very easy to get money from her. I love her so much,, May God bless her for me

I pray so too, I really dont think there us anything wrong in that if the man is doing well for himself.
My grandma still brings foodstuff (she works in the market) for us once in a while and adds money sometimes even though my dad has two cars and 3 houses. It's mother's love. There is nothing bad here if the son in question is doing well for himself.

My dad still does this sometimes when I go visiting... Instead of calling the help to come take the plates away he calls me and I know why 😂
