My Brother Knights,

I would like to share with you all the story of an Unconditional Love of a Mother.

Mrs. Johnson had only one eye and was an embarrassment to her  son Callen. She cooked for students and teachers to support  herself and her son after her husband’s sudden death. One day  Mrs Johnson came to the Elementary School of her son Callen to  say hello to him. “How could you do this to me?” he said to her  embarrassed. The next day one of his classmates said to him, “EEEE, your mom has only one eye!”

Next day Callen confronted his mother at home. He said to her, “If you are only going  to make me laughing stock why you don’t just die?” Mrs Johnson did not respond.

Several years passed by, and Callen completed his graduation and post-graduation with the money that his mom had saved. He secured as excellent position in a reputed company, got married and lived separately from his mom. He has two sons.

Then one day Mrs Johnson came to visit Callen. She was anxious to meet her grandsons. On seeing her at the door, Callen yelled. “How dare you come to my house and scare my children! Get out of here! ” as he shut the door on his mom. One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to Callen. He attended the function,  and then, out of curiosity, went to visit the old shack where he had grown up. His neighbours told him that his mom had passed away a week ago and had left a letter for him. Callen took the letter and on his way home he opened it and read it.

“My dearest son, I think of you all the time. I am sorry that I was an  embarrassment to you all the time. I am sorry that I came to your house and  scared your children. You see, son, when you were just two years old, you got  into an accident, and lost one of your eyes. As a mother, I could not stand  watching you having to grow up with one eye, so I gave one of eyes to you so  that you could see and enjoy the world through all your life. My love for you  has never depended on your response. A mother’s love is unconditional, my  son. I wish you well. I am proud of you!
Your Mom

God Bless you all
