A moment between mother and son became viral on social media, touching thousands of netizens’ hearts.
In the video uploaded by Gabriel Angelo De Guzman (@gbrl.dc), who’s working as a nurse, it can be seen that he was giving his first salary to her mother as a sign of gratefulness for the support he received from his parents.
According to him, he was not obligated to help his mother to support her despite being capable already of having a job.
“Ang buong iniisip ko lang that time habang hawak ko na yung sweldo ko is kahit maliit man ‘tong sweldo ko, makakabawi ako sa lahat ng ginastos at paghihirap niya para makahanap ng pera na ipang gagastos saming magkakapatid,” he said.
The mother of Gabriel hesitated at first to accept her son’s first salary and vowed to return it once she earned enough money.
She even became emotional because of being proud of the gesture shown by her son.
“Unang sahod mo to, tatanggapin ko to pero ibabalik ko sayo kasi pinaghirapan mo to. So ito, iingatan mo ‘tong pera mo.” she said.
The video received thousands of shares and views from netizens who couldn’t hide their emotions because of the sweet moment between mother and child.
“Yung mga binigay at ginastos ng magulang para sa anak libre yun, obligasyon namin bilang parents. Yung kapalit na hinihintay lang namin eh yung makapagtapos kayo ng pag aaral, malayo sa masasamang bisyo at nakapag work ng maayos for your future.” netizen Cristina said.
“Tama mag ipon para hnd maipasa ang kahirapan sa mga anak.at ng hnd na nila Danasin ang dinanas ng isang magulang,” netizen Joan remarked.
