OFW in UAE surprises his mother on her 86th birthday

by | TOP STORIES

An Abu Dhabi-based overseas Filipino worker (OFW) surprised his mother on her birthday with a bouquet of red roses, birthday card, and balloons delivered to her doorstep.

Her mother Elizabeth was sitting on the sofa when a girl walked right through the door and handed her the gifts. When the 86-year old mum asked where it came from, her face broke into a big smile and tears began to run down her face.

She read the card aloud while in tears.

“Ma, hindi ko man masabi sa iyo madalas pero mahal na mahal kita. At hindi ko rin matandaan kung nabigyan ba kita ng card at bulaklak tuwing birthday mo. Parang wala yata. Kaya ito ang naisip kong ibigay sa’yo para makabawi sa mga atraso ko.

Pasensya na kung hindi ako makasama sa selebrasyon mo. Mahal ng pamasahe, eh! Joke!

I love you, Ma! Kapit lang makakaraos din tayo! Happy Birthday, Inday.”

Elizabeth thanked her son, saying:

“Maraming, maraming salamat. Ako rin miss na kita. Kahit bago lang ‘yung pagkikita natin, gusto ko palagi kang nandito sa piling ko. Mag-ingat ka diyan, Lan. Maraming, maraming salamat aking anak.”

“Di [ko] mapigilan lumuha sa kaligayahan. Naisip mo ‘yun. Maraming salamat, ‘nak. Maraming salamat. Maligayang-maligaya ako sa aking kaarawan. kahit malayo ka sa akin. Mag-ingat ka diyan. Mahal na mahal kita,” his mother said.

Afterwards, she blew the birthday candles and had pictures taken with her family.

Elizabeth has 8 children whom she had successfully raised alone.

In 2003, Allan landed a job overseas and that was when he started to pay his mother’s sacrifices back by providing for their family’s needs.

Now, Allan works as a chef in Abu Dhabi and only goes home every two years for a short vacation.
