Famous soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo explains why he still lives with his mom and his answer will make your heart melt.
Cristiano doesn't take the relationship he has with his mother for granted. Fortunately for his mom, Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro, he paid attention to how hard she worked as she was raising him.
As a single mom, Maria worked long hours and often went without food to ensure Cristiano never wanted for anything. He knows he wouldn't be where he is today without his mother's hard work, guidance, and all the sacrifices she made.
We all do the best we can to give our children everything they need on top of raising them to be good human beings who make this world a better place.
In an interview, a reporter asked famous soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo why his mother was still living with him. After all, he's a grown man with a successful career. He has enough money to build her a house. But his response will absolutely blow your mind and make you misty-eyed!
Why Famous Soccer Player Cristiano Ronaldo Lives With His Mom
"My mother reared me up by sacrificing her life for me. She went to bed hungry to feed me. We had no money. She worked 7 days a week and worked nights as a cleaner to buy me a pair of football boots so I could play.
My whole success is dedicated to her.
And as long as she lives, she will always have everything I can give her. She is my sanctuary and my greatest gift.”
Somebody pass a tissue and recite Proverbs 31:8 with me, "Her children arise and call her blessed."
Maria is absolutely blessed!
A Special Birthday Wish
Cristiano had another touching moment with his mother when he wished her a happy birthday online.
Famous soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo posted a photo of his mom with this caption: “Happy birthday to the best mother in the world, a warrior who always taught me not to give up, the best grandmother my children could ever dream of having. I love you so much, my mother! Kiss!”
This is what the good Lord intended when he gave us children to raise. Our ultimate goal is to raise a Christ-centered child who not only honors God but his parents. What a heartwarming story to encourage moms who are still in the middle of raising their kids that this is the ultimate blessing!
"Her children arise and call her blessed." Proverbs 31:28
