    Hopefully your family can take a (nuclear) family trip to China, Your parents, yourself and your siblings (and spouses with kids). My mom was very similar, always everything for others and nothing for herself. She grew up in Germany during the war. Similar circumstances. In 2003 we went to Europe together. Trust me it will be the best trip of your life and all of you will remember it forever.

    I love hearing them speaking in their native language. Honestly English is bland and boring. Why is it that so many white people decide that our language is superior over beautiful dialects, and impose it on others? I.e. "Speak American hurrrr durrrrrrrrr"

    Many people can learn a lot from Kane's mom. She is always living in the present by she treasuring each and every moment of her life that she can spend with her loved ones and the simple joys of life. My parents immigrated to Canada for my brother and I so we can have opportunities in our future. I am so privileged but I find myself always comparing myself to others and feeling entitled to things in life. It really puts things into perspective and I want to better myself everyday and be grateful for what I have.

    You have siblings , do you guys not put money together and do things for them? My parents pretty much are retired cos we pay for everything together along with our bills. We probably get paid less than your siblings so I know it’s achievable. Treat your parents to a vacation .Teamwork! It’s what makes a family operate smoothly

    Tears... "everywhere you look at your mom's house you see love." She knows the true simple blessing of contentment and enjoying even small things. Your mom... is super spwcial. But you know that already. This video was a great idea. Now a video of you asking your dad or grandmother questions?

    lmao I saw an ARMYs comment at 0:29 but aside of that lets just say raising 9 kids in Vietnam especially during the war is really hard although I never been through stuff like that because I'm a 05's I still know that raising kids aren't easy and she needs to keep them alive. You need to worry about their food, health, activities and stuff. If something goes wrong one life is gone. Imagine working all day just got home and you still need to feed your kids and do the chores, it's tough. So cherish every moment you have now, be thankful to your parents or grandparents and tell them you love them

    I’m bawling my eyes out right now. Nobody will probably ever read this and I know I’ll never have the courage to tell this to my mom, but thank you. Thank you Mom for sacrificing yourself for me. For staying up all night to go to work. Thank you for always making sure I have everything I need. Thank you for supporting me, for loving me no matter who I was. You do everything you can to make me happy regardless of how you felt. And I just want to say I promise you I will try to return that. I love you so much, that my heart swells with joy when I’m around you. I want to be near you, next to you, all the time. You are my remodel. I hope that one day I can can as an amazing mom as you are. I love you.

    My mum never travels anywhere either and barely buys anything for herself and now she's retired and just likes pursuing her own hobbies at home. I get not wanting to rush after life and excitement. My mum has lived very simply but she's happier than those who chase after stuff.

    I loved your video. I miss my mom...n pop. Asking those questions and listening are so important. My parents were very poor but came to the United States. I was raised in a very loving home. Listening to your mom speak of happiness and gratefulness rings true. It is because of struggle and loss that one can deeply appreciate even the small flowers budding and find joy in simple moments. She is an incredible lady. Blessed are all those unsung heroic moms that smile, sacrifice, raise good people through love and hard work.🤗😍

    Never knew my mom wanted to be a stewardess. She loved to see the world, but when the war started, she had to flee. They immigrated to Canada and had my brother and I. They've never been afforded many opportunities to travel, but now they do it leisurely. I hope that I can give them the opportunity to travel now and enjoy it more. Thanks for the video!

    This video makes me think of a couple years back, we went to a party that was in the same are my dad’s house was when he was growing up... he started talking about his childhood... I had never thought about asking him and he never talks about what it was like growing up not having all the things that I take for granted. When he started telling me these stories I realized my grandparents sacrificed a lot and worked really hard so that their children had a better life, and my parents did too. I hope one day I’ll get to be as good a parent as the ones I had the fortune to have.
