a mother's simple reward

Being a mother is tiring and rewarding at the same time and I don't have to enumerate the reasons why.

I woke up this morning with a terrible stomachache, so terrible that I cannot bear to even stand up. I was in agony. When Aloy went to me to greet me good morning, he noticed that I'm sick so he asked me, "Mama masakit tiyan mo?" When I said yes, he kissed my tummy. I was excruciating with pain and was about to vomit when Aloy ran outside to get manzanilla and went back to me so that he could massage my tummy. I was very touched with his gesture. He did massage my tummy (I was surprised because he knows how to massage!) and when he realized that he cannot lessen my agony, he shouted for my mom instead. After my mom massaged my tummy, she gave me hot choco and let me rest for a while. Aloy was holding my hand the whole time, he never let me go. Now that I think of it, I feel tears welling up my eyes. I never imagined him to be this compassionate. I must have done something good to deserve this love from a two year old boy.
