There is nothing in this world that can compare to the love that a mother has for her child. Nothing can match the love a mother feels for her child. A mother is the reason for her child’s life and she grew the baby inside herself for nine months. That attachment is something that cannot be matched by anyone else. And that feeling is a wonderful thing. A mother’s love has a healing power that is real. This power can inspire people to greatness. And it has the power to produce peace between people. Motherhood has the same power in all cultures around the globe.
And a few weeks ago, a loving son lost his mother to brain cancer. But before she passed away, she wrote a final note to him that he has decided to share with the public on Reddit.
The note was written on August 10, 2017. And it reads as follows:
“I didn’t think this day would come this fast, and I had years to write this… So sorry I was wrong if it happens that way. I love you, and I hope you have a great blessed life. P.S. Make good choices! I love you, Mom.”
The bottom of the short note is adorned with “XOXO” in a mother’s fashion.
Thousands of people were inspired by this mother’s final words. And they shared comments on Reddit to express their sorrow for the young man who lost his mom to brain cancer and also to share in the mother’s love phenomenon.
“‘Make good choices!’ My mom tells me this all the time. I’m sorry for your loss, and I hope you make good choices!”
“A mother is an irreplaceable figure in our lives. We should cherish our mother while we can and never take her for granted.”
“I cherish (my mother) no matter what I do, I still feel like I take her for granted. The woman is a saint.”
Other people shared their not-so-great experiences with their mothers.
“I wish my mom told me this. Mine tells me to drink.”
One person received a similar note from her father when he passed years ago.
“I lost my father to cancer when I was 18. I have something very much like this. On my 18th birthday, seven months before he died, he left me a voicemail because he was out of state for treatment. ‘Happy birthday! I couldn’t be prouder, and I couldn’t love you more. And I won’t see you tonight, but I’ll see you in the morning. All my love. Have a good one. Bye!’”
This commenter explained, that “this little voicemail is only 20 seconds long, but those 20 seconds hold a weight of pain and hope that words cannot justify. I listen to that voicemail twice a year. The anniversary of his death, and on my birthday. As I’ve grown older, the message has changed. It has waned from a monument of pain to a blanket of comfort.”
What do you think about this letter the young man shared with the internet? Do you think it will serve as a source of comfort for years to come?
