It’s never simple to leave your family to work overseas. This is what our beloved OFWs need to withstand and sacrifice in order to offer a better life to their family.
However, as OFWs ensure their family eats three times a day in the Philippines and the children go to school, some members of the family tend to demand too much.
OFWs (Overseas Filipino workers) are looking forward to the day they can go back to the Philippines to see their kids and family. So it’s no wonder why some OFWs choose to specialize this day by making it a surprise.
A Pinay OFW’s story recently went viral on social media, making everyone cry. She went home to surprise her relatives, but she doesn’t seem to recognize her by her family. Yeth Espiritu Cuadra has decided to surprise her family after years of working in Riyadh, and the only person who knows her arrival is her best friend.
Check out her post.
She shared the funny yet emotional moment when she knocked at the door, pretending she was looking for herself.
“Wala pa si Mayeth sa Disyembre pa yun uuwi.” her mom said after opening the gate.

OFWs are our new kind of heroes and we should express our thankfulness and appreciation to them whenever we can. Despite all the sacrifices and sufferings, they need to endure, what matters most to them is they provide a better or comfortable life to their family back home. This is what mother’s love looks like.
