Family members are expected to help one another in times of need. That includes borrowing a personal item. Here’s a story that will make you reflect on the limits of family generosity.

Benjie loved his son Grey more than anything. Grey was only five years old when his mom left them for another man. Since she left, Grey was the only one who mattered to Benjie.

But when Grey turned 20, he got into an accident while mountain-climbing. He fell off a boulder. He survived, luckily, but the accident left him with paralyzed legs.

SACRIFICING EVERYTHING FOR HIS SON

Benjie took Grey home from the hospital and became his son’s carer. He defied his family’s advice to put Grey in home care. Benjie felt bad over how his mom and sister treated his son.

Just because his son needed assistance around the clock does not mean he should put Grey in the care of strangers. Benjie decided to quit his job at a bank and sell a few properties to take care of Grey.

He felt hurt and disappointed that his mom and sister never bothered to visit and check in on Grey. Benjie knew that one of Grey’s dreams was to buy a yacht for himself.

With his son being a wheelchair user, Benjie knew Grey had a slim chance of realizing that dream. He decided to sell another parcel of land from his estate and bought Grey a yacht.

His son was beyond happy and grateful. The yacht became their happy place together. Sadly, Grey’s condition took a turn for the worse. He suffered from anemia, which later affected his heart.

Their request angered Benjie, who immediately said no.

DEVASTATED BY HIS SON'S DEATH

Grey passed away two years after his accident. Benjie was devastated. Although his mom, sister, and relatives paid tribute to Grey and attended the funeral, Benjie could not shake off his hurt feelings.

He felt his family had abandoned him and Grey. Six months after Grey’s burial, Benjie’s mom and sister came to visit. They asked Benjie if his sister could use his yacht for her wedding.

A DISRESPECTFUL MOVE

Their request angered Benjie, who immediately said no. He said that the yacht was Grey’s, adding that doing the celebration there was disrespectful of his son’s memory.

He also brought up how hurt he and Grey felt because of his mom and sister’s absence during their most trying times. His mom and sister defended themselves, saying they cared for him and Grey.

They also said that having the wedding on the yacht was another way of honoring Grey’s memory. But Benjie felt that his mom and sister were not sincere.
