I Found Something Valuable in the Complaint

Happy Saturday read.cash citizen❣️
As I look at the calendar it makes me realize that time is running so fast that in last two days and we will welcome new month of this year. Gosh, I felt like it was still January. Before, when the class was still face to face while I was sitting I really wished that the time would move faster for us to go home but the more I focused at the time I felt like it moved slower. I usually do it when I hate the subject but then I miss that feeling. Hopefully this pandemic will end and disappear soon but I know when face to face is back I am no longer in the four corners of the classroom. To tell you honestly, this online modality can easily be manipulated , especially assignments considering that most of the students are solely dependent at the mareng Google unlike before where we can only depend on our knowledge by doing self study. Of course if you cannot answer just look at your seatmate to find an answer hahaha. Buti nalang matalino katabi ko, lol.
A few days passed after Mama got her new phone. She really made my day by her unconscious action regarding the phone, application and signal. You know, she always complains about the signal like "Ma, kasalanan ko ba if mahinay yung signal mo hahaha". It happened twice when she really pissed off about the signal but when I checked it, it made me laugh so hard as I noticed that she didn't turn on the data hahaha. In spite of all her complaints, I am very happy to see her having fun watching some random tik tok videos. Yes, there are times, I'll be pissed off when she asks something that is obvious but my conscience haunts me down after ignoring her. Assisting her feels like a mother who patiently teaches the child to walk. I get pissed off but that doesn't mean I will not guide and teach her. Instead it made me realize how lucky I am to be born in this technological era and that helping her is not too much. Hence, it opens more quality time and memories to treasure that surely I'll miss when the time God will take her away from me.
Some people would think having a phone will create distance to our loved one's where all the time has been focused on the phone. In Mama's case she really knows when to use and she never forgets to have time with us but there are times I rebuked her when she was having fun and tend to forget that we are about to her or her milk is getting cold. I could say she is now an addict at tiktok videos. Apparently, she tried to dance, the dance trend "Paro-parong G" but she did not record it.
Lately, watching her has become my hobby, specifically with her reactions and assisting her along the way. Every complaint makes me feel she needs me more and my happiness can't be contained. Also I can even supply her a load for a week and from time to time she will be asked to do "data balance" to monitor her load. I find it cute and adorable especially when I am not in the house she always chats and calls me to ask where I am and sometimes naglalambing ng pasalubong.
Everything happens with the help of this platform as I am able to buy and provide something for my family. Forever and ever grateful that this platform exists. The people who made me spoil Mama are small things that I have never done before.
Happy to see you in sponsors block❣️
