When we're not feeling well, we just want the love only a mother can give.
When we’re feeling ill the one person we often need most in the world is our mom … no matter our age. This was recently the case for 22-year-old Grace Li, who shared on Twitter the extraordinary moment her mom went above and beyond her motherly duties.
Last Friday Li rang her mom, Shixia Huang, a cancer researcher from Texas, and told her that she felt she was coming down with something, complaining that she had a headache. While lots of us might have said pop a Tylenol and get a good night’s sleep, Huang said: “Okay, I can catch the next flight.”
Although Li replied: “Is that a joke?” the next thing she knew, her mom was by her side. A happy Li posted a picture of the two together for proof after Huang had hopped on a flight and traveled half the length of the country, to New York, just to check on her daughter. Proving a mother’s job is never done, Li reported that her mom had taken her straight to the doctor and made her a wholesome soup to ensure a speedy recovery. She ended her impromptu visit by cooking some more healthy meals to keep her daughter going, as well as cleaning the kitchen.
