Of course everyone wants to celebrate Mother’s Day with their mom, but the reality is not everyone can.
Some people have to stay at work even on such a meaningful day.
This McDonald’s in Taiwan interviewed some of its employees about their moms and families.
“Our school was really far from home. And Mom always waited for us when classes were over. I felt safe whenever I saw her. I feel that Mom has really sacrificed a lot for us.”
“All of my family members live in Kaohsiung and Chiayi. None of them are in Taipei. Mom always worries that I am here in Taipei alone. Actually, I really want to go back each week. But the restaurant is busy on weekends.”
Staff: “You were brought up by your grandma since you were in sixth grade in elementary school.”
Wei Ting: “Yes.”
Staff: “How important is your grandma to you?”
Wei Ting: “Super important! Grandma… is more important than a girlfriend!”
After the interview, McDonald’s decided to give its employees a very special Mother’s Day.
Staff visited their homes, secretly invited their beloved moms to come to their work place in Tamsui, New Taipei City, and of course set up cameras to capture the touching moments.
Three moms arrived from different parts of Taiwan—Yun Zhen’s mom from Chiayi, Jing Yu’s mom from Yonghe, and Ya Wen’s mom from Miaoli.
Wow! Seems like it was a really big surprise. Look at these beautiful moments…
“Happy Mother’s Day!” everyone applauded. But do you think that’s the end of the video?
Wei Ting was watching from the back of the store, and said jokingly yet enviously: “Well, they didn’t ask my grandma to come. I also miss my grandma very much.”
After a few minutes, a member of staff called him forward, and said: “Your grandma also wanted to come.”
Wei Ting: “It’s not possible.”
Staff: “She recorded a video for you”
Wei Ting: “Really?”
Wei Ting: “Wow, this is my grandma!”
Grandma knew Wen Ting would be coming back soon, so she bought some kiwis, Wen Ting’s favorite fruit, and prepared his bed.
Grandma was touched when she heard Wei Ting saying she is more important than a girlfriend.
“Wen Ting, Grandma loves you. I’ll cook for you when you come back. I’ll make whatever you want to eat.”
No matter how far the distance between us, we can never be separated from each other
