This story is a tribute to the strength of a mother. Her hands are rough because of the many household chores, but soften and lighten when taking care of her children.
Ang kuwentong ito ay isang parangal sa kadakilaan ng isang ina. Magaspang ang kaniyang palad dahil sa dami ng gawain sa bahay, pero lumalambot at gumagaan ang kaniyang kamay kapag nag-aalaga ng anak.
