She carried us nine full months unmindful of the seeming danger that lies ahead while giving birth. Nurture us with her endless love and sacrifices willing to give everything even her life for us…
Carol had to be comforted by Ray as their son Ricky Hatton is on a familiar situation on that fateful night on Dec.8, 2007 when Hatton was floored by Floyd Mayweather Jr. but unlike his previous fight when he gave Floyd some headache there was little resistance when he fought Manny Pacquiao and was caught with a perfect left hook which was so vicious that I could hear the nagging sound in a boisterous environment while watching it on pay per view. Tears rolled down on Hatton’s mom while Ricky’s fiancé started to cry on his own while watching a hopeless Ricky lying on the cold canvass.
On the other side, Dionesia the famed pound per pound king’s mother was rejoicing on her son’s victory. It was her first time to set foot in US soil but while his son preferred to see her mother on ring side mother Dionesia insist she stays in the hotel praying for divine intervention hoping her son would win and give glory to his country.
I could see the pain Ricky’s mother felt seeing her son unconscious for two minutes and I could felt the joy, pride and happiness of Manny’s mother seeing her son raise his hands in victory.
Mom, Mama, Mother and Mum they have been there for us guiding and loving us in the most darkest times of our lives and in the most happiest moments in life. Mother Carol and Dionesia felt in some ways the same. They were just happy to see their sons ok… I guess it’s all what mother’s really pray for.
Happy Mother’s Day to all……..
