Photo of Homeless Mom and Son Playing by the Road Touches Netizens’ Hearts
The love of a mother knows no bounds – and a mother will always love her children no matter how old they may be or what circumstances they may be in.
Here’s an example of a homeless mom playing with her son in the street. The photo has touched the hearts of netizens.
This was how Facebook user Ameniel Del Mundo described his reaction on seeing a mother and child happily playing on a traffic island as he was driving through on Airport Road under the NAIA Expressway in Parañaque
Del Mundo told INQUIRER.net he spotted the mother and child while stuck in traffic last Tuesday, April 9.
“I was stressed from some work issues when I saw the child playing with his mother, and the mother grabbed the child and played with him as well,” Del Mundo said in a Facebook Messenger interview on Saturday. “The two were playing happily on the island while I was grumbling about my situation in the car.”
He snapped back to reality and changed his mood after seeing the scene. “Proof that happiness is a choice,” he captioned the picture.
Many netizens admired the little family’s happiness despite their circumstances after seeing the photo. It might have only been a brief moment of happiness, but it shows that you can be happy anywhere and with anyone. It does not matter if you are poor or rich, you can still be happy.
Del Mundo, however, said he was stuck in traffic and didn’t get a chance to talk to both mother and son.
“They might be moving around because I tried to come back on Friday and Saturday, but they were nowhere to be found. I will come back this week since I remember their faces so well,” Ameniel said.
As of press time, he has not found the family, but hopes to do so soon.
