50 years ago, my mother left her rural home town to marry my father who was then an officer of the South Vietnamese Army. They traveled often as the war progressed and humbly lived in shacks, washing dishes out of pots in collected rain water. But they were happy. She followed him everywhere he went with their four children until he was captured as prisoner of war. During this time, she had to separate her children and sent them to their grandparents in order for them to survive after the war. 8 years later, after his release, they began to build their lives again in a war torn country. Everything taken away from them. They worked tirelessly to be able to provide for their children. Sometimes, there was so little that they had to go door to door to ask for rice. But they were happy. 7 children later, and after many years of waiting, they were finally able to migrate to the United States. After years of being on welfare, the family was able to make enough money to get away from the bad area they were in. Fast forward, after many deaths in the family, he was also stricken with cancer and the thought of him being there for their 50th was just hope lingering on. But they were happy.
Today, we can say we made it! Although he is still sick, he is fighting til this day. Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad. No words can ever describe how admiring your love is. No love will Ever be a great as your love. “Wherever she goes, there was Eden.” -Mark Twain
I’m trying to catch my mom in the act 🤣 she was gagging before I started filming. I will say, God definitely blessed me with the best and funniest family ever. I would not change them for the world. #mommy#ilovemymom#drinkdrankdrunk#loveyou
