Mother’s Day is fast approaching and everyone is gearing up to say thank you to the most important women in their lives. Even the fast-food chain Jollibee released three, brilliant commercials that will no doubt make us ugly cry. But there’s one Facebook post that seemed to steal all the attention because of it’s inspiring message.
Mark Carabbacan made hearts melt when he posted short videos about the woman he considers his true mother. His captions were quite short but his actions on the video below spoke louder than any five-paragraph essay.
LOLA KUNG MAIPAPASA KO LANG SANA ANG LAKAS KO GINAWA KO NA. 💔😭 #LOLASBOY

This admirable young man is a self-professed “lola‘s boy” who owes everything to his grandmother. We probably know people who grew up with the same circumstances as Mark; parents unable to take care of their children and heroic grandparents stepping in to do the job. We also understand how these kids would do whatever it takes to repay the kindness and love they’ve received.
As his grandmother becomes weaker, Mark takes on the responsibility of being there for her needs. Apart from heating her bath water and giving her a shower, Mark also changes his lola’s adult diapers and helps her get dressed.

What this shows us is that this Mother’s Day, don’t be caught up in material gifts or dinner reservations. Our mothers deserve a deeper, more heartfelt way of showing how much they mean to us. The presents we give them need not to be expensive because sometimes, a little kiss or a hug will mean the whole world to them.
Here are some of the netizens’ reactions to the story:
Hindi ko ikinakahiyang ganito ako sa Lola ko araw-araw. Nagpapainit ako ng panligo niya (malamig daw po kasi) Naalala ko lang nung bata pa lamang kami ng kapatid ko, na kami yung hinahabol niya noon para kanyang paliguan, Nakakalungkot lang na yung dating lakas niya nabawi na ng panahon. Ngayon at mahina na siya hindi ako napapagod na alagaan siya, kasabay ng pagtupad ko ng aking mga pangarap sana bigyan pa ako ng Panginoon ng pagkakataon na makasama pa siya at harapin ang bukas na kasama siya. 😭
