Only a MOTHER can do THIS

A real story:
Only a MOTHER can do THIS
My mom had only one eye. I hated her ... she was such anembarrassment.
She cooked for students and teachers to support the family.
There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came to say hello to me.
How could she do this to me ??
I ignored her, threw a hateful look at her and ran out.
The next day at school one of my classmates said to me,
" Ewwwwww, your mom has only one eye !!! "
I wanted to bury myself.
I also wanted my mom to just disappear.
I confronted her that same day and said, " If you're only gunna make me a laughing stock, why don't you just die ?? "
My mom did not respond... all that came from her was a tear from the one andonlyeye she had.
I didn't even stop to think fora second about what I had said, because I was so full of anger. I was hurting her feelings.
I didn't care.
I wanted her out of that house, and have nothing to do with her.
Soi studied real hard, and got a chance to go abroad to study.

Then i got married.
I brought a house of my own. I had kids of my own.
I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts.
Then one day, my mom came to visit me.
She hadn't seen me in years and she hadn't even seen her grandchildren.
When she stood at the door, my children laughed at her,I yelled at her for coming over uninvited.

I screamed at her, " How dare you come to my house and scare my children !!! "
And to this, my mother quietly answered, " Oh, I'm so sorry. I may have gotton the wrong address, " and she disappeared out of sight.
One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house.
So i lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip.

After the reunion, I went to my old home just out of curiosity.
My neighbours said that she had passed away. I shed not a single tear.
They gave me a letter that she wanted me to have.

It read

My dearest son,
I think of you all the time. I'm sorry that I came to your house and scared your children.
I was so glad when i heard you were coming for the reunion. But i may not be able to get out of bed to see you due to my illness.
I'm sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were growing up.
You see ....... when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost an eye.
As your mother, i couldn't stand watching you having to grow up with one eye, So i gave you mine. i was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye.
With all my love to you,
Your Mother.

I was the cause of my mothers death........
She needed someone to look after her........
And i was the only onewho COULD look after her........
She was killed by neglect........
And cared for me so much she didnt bother to call me when she fell ill because she didnt want to embarrass me any more.........
