Mom, Look!

Andreia A.

When I was around fourteen, my mother had emergency surgery and I stayed at the restaurant. I took over the entire kitchen for three days. I felt so proud of myself! When she got back, I told her: “Mom, look how hard I worked! How much money I made! I did it!” She was very proud and I think she felt a bit sorry for me as well. That gave us a lot of strength.
