Here's an example of parents' unconditional love for their children. No matter how poor this man is he didn't let this financial condition come in the way of his son's happiness.
A parent would do everything in their power to never let a smile diminish from their children's face. No matter how poor or rich one is, the love towards their kids is the same. In a recent post, an impoverished old man was seen handing a number of coins at the checkout counter after purchasing a pair of shoes for his beloved son. According to Phil News, the Philippines based man had been saving the precious coins for years now in order to gift his son nice shoes. Making its way onto the internet the selfless gesture of the old man touched every netizens' heart.
Posting the picture of this heartwarming moment, a Facebook page called "Philippine trends and news" appreciated the poor man for his generous act. The (translated) post read: Guys! Let's celebrate this dad, he bought his son's shoes that he had been collecting in the bank for several years, as he counted those coins on the counter tracing dad's face with joy and smiles as he bought the most anticipated of his son's shoes. , as long as he lives he will do everything he can to make his children happy and support them in a dignified way .. Wow! you're a great dad, we salute you so many more blessings have come into your life.
Apparently the elderly man had been saving every penny he could spare in a thrift box for years now. When the day of the purchase arrived, he could hardly contain his happiness as he was finally able to pay for a pair of shoes that his son used to dream of. This man is the embodiment of unconditional love parents have towards their children. With sheer patience and love the man proved to everyone that he could overcome every challenge in life just so he could keep his family happy and it's surely a lesson one can learn from him.
It's not every day that we come across something as amazing as this. This news gives us hope of a new tomorrow that everyone desperately needs in their lives. And with an overflowing amount of bad news in this world, this is definitely a piece of news that has the power to brighten one's day. Vouching for the same, several Facebook users lauded the poor father with words of kindness. Some appreciatively acknowledged the father's sacrifices, while some simply prayed for him. Facebook user, Lynda Naillon Brusven wrote: God bless this man and every other parent who values their child this much and who sacrifices all they can to bring joy to their children. This is love in it's truest form. Many blessings...
Another user, Yeyethe Malco Hari wrote: Dad, I salute you, thank you, and there is someone like you who always remind you not to give up, and we can just trust... may you be blessed, especially the Lord. God bless you! While Norman Monjirel left a comment for the son asking him to appreciate and reciprocate his father's acts of kindness and selflessness. Here's a translated version of what he wrote: It's big now, bro, hoping for your father. You should be able to give your father. Remember, bro, we are children, whatever it is in the world, money gold, etc. We will still not be able to repay or reflect our parents. We can only be able to match them in the eyes of God and man, let us show you love respect and nurturing them. Kiss their feet while they are getting older and still alive.
Reden Ballon seemed to be in agreement with Monjirel as his comment read: I salute you dad but dad if that's his child, this is the only thing I can say, that your father has a old age, find your life whatever is noble so that you will be the one to support the needs of your father who is already aged.
