The heartwarming pictures of a young woman taking care of her 98-year-old grandmother have become viral, with many viewers touched by the bond between the granddaughter and her grandma.
The viral pictures posted on Facebook show Jen Ampler feeding, bathing and caring for her beloved grandparent who needs help in doing the simplest daily activities.
According to Jen, her grandma took care of her patiently when she was still a child. Taking care of her grandma now is a way for Jen to give back to her.
“Simula nong pagpanganak kaw na ang nagaalaga at nagapalaki sa akin inang ko habang sinusubuan at pinapaliguan kita umiiyak ako kasi naalala ko nong bata ako kaw lahat ang gumagawa nyan sakin ngayon inang ko 98 years old kana hayaan mo na kami naman ang gumawa ng mga ginawa mo saamin,” Jen wrote on her Facebook page.
(“Inang,” you took care of me and watched over me when I was growing up. I cried while I was feeding and bathing you earlier because I remembered that you did those things for me before. But now that you are already 98-years-old, allow us to do those things for you…)
Jen also vowed to never abandon her beloved grandma whatever happens to her because she never abandoned her when she was young.
Jen also wrote on her Facebook: “hinding hindi ka namin babalewalain kahit ganyan kana katanda,di kana makasubo ng pagkain,di na makaligo magisa,di kana magkapaglakad hayaan mong kami ang kamay at paa mo kulang pa yang sakripisyo mo saamin.”
(We will never abandon you in your old age. You can no longer feed yourself, take a bath by yourself and walk on your own. Allow us to be your hands and feet. We can never repay your sacrifices for us.)
