CEBU CITY, Philippines— A mother’s love and sacrifice do not have to be trumpeted for us to know how dedicated she is to her family, especially her children.

This TikTok video posted by Lyn Baclayon of Guadalupe, Cebu City shows a mother’s simple gesture of taking care of her child, while busy providing for her family.

During Barangay Tisa’s Siomai Festival last Sunday, September 24, Baclayon noticed a mother fanning her child who was sleeping under their food cart.

“[I] Found so very cute po cause I’m also a mama’s girl, grabi ka strong si ate nadungan niya iyang negosyo og pagka inahan and proud kyko para niya,” Baclayon said.

This video which showed a mother’s sacrifice, got so much attention online that in just three days, it has garnered over 10 million views on TikTok.

In a world often filled with loud gestures and grand displays of affection, it’s the quiet sacrifices of mothers that truly speak volumes. Thank you to our ka-Siloy, Lyn, for sharing this video online to remind everyone how genuine a mother’s love is.
