On The Day He Graduated, He Made Mother A Promise



The day he graduated Michael made a promise to his mother — that family would never play second fiddle to his career.


That vow was put to the test when mother fell ill. Even with the help of a nurse, caring for her took a toll.


Although Michael tried his hardest to juggle between work and home, there were far too many responsibilities in the air, and he consistently found himself lacking.

With a big overseas client to impress, he had to choose between staying by his mother’s side or leading the team at the meet.


He made a choice, one he would come to regret.

He could quit his job, but he could never quit his mother.
