All about my mom <3 <3

My mom is just a typical petite lady who was born with a very struggle life without parents to look after. She needed to earn a living and her education by doing many kinds of works and even some wrong or immoral actions. She did tried very hard to get education because she believed that only education can lighten up her life. Luckily, her life was better from her struggling as she can become a teacher of one primary school.

God even kind and loves her enough to bring my daddy into her life and allowed them to meet accidentally very often although they were teaching in different schools. Everytime they ride a bike passing each other, the war started…

My daddy likes to tease my mommy and my mommy also don’t let him win LOL… they event sent the words to tease with each other… Until one day, my mommy moved to teach with my daddy at Samaki primary school, my first education. My daddy was the only highest eduacated man at that time and that is why many girls melt on him plus he is handsome in his own way LOL…

Days by days, Love starts in the heart without realizing but what is known is only the good feeling to each other…”When you say nothing at all”.

My mom was become my daddy’s student of an English language and because of something I don’t know, she started to love him

My mom did a very good job and serve my daddy the best in being good students and lady which my daddy believed as a very good housewife.

Finally and accurately, my daddy falls in love with my mommy who’s always care and respect him plus with the feeling of pitty of how hard she tried on her own to survive without parents.

 

They both struggle until they can get married at the end… Life was not stop as they are very poor and need to stand on their own in building the family as my grandmom didn’t really support my mommy.

Life even harder after they give me a birth. I am a child that was always sick and is about to die… in order to save me, they sell almost all the property and even the money they save for their future plan… 😥

Finally, God is very surprised with their struggling and purify heart, God save me and let me a live…

Although my mom has a family, yet she still face with many difficulty and hard working.

She is a mother of 4 children including me, Sovannry Vevina Jutie, Vin Vin Moly, PoPo lonely…

 

She use to be a seller at school, teaching, and being a housewife at the same time which makes her life become very tough until her skin, her face, and even her beauty cannot be shine up and most of her scar are from those work…

She never complain and always smile and spend times in teaching me and my younger sisters to be a good children, good citizen and good person that everyone like.

She somehow did some sin in order to support our living… this is the truth that every parents did for their child but without understanding they got blame or irrespect towards some words and action. My mommy smile without thinking about any tiring and illness because of us here. She takes a very good care of this family. She waits us home although it is too late at night…

Luckily, she has 4 good daughters which makes her proud days by days from their achievement. they are very proud of us… and we are really proud to have such an motivative parents as well. They always support whatever we want to do and just give idea and advices.

 

We all Love you so much MOMMY and DADDY

You are always have a special place in our heart and we always pay your grateful and respectfull as always…

It’s undescribeable but I do believe that “ACTION Did hears Louder than WORDS” and I am on the process to proved it…You are my model and my good example of being a good wife, mother, friend, co-worker, and citizen…

 

LOVE,

 

ON, Nov, Ning, Vin
