Saying goodbye is one of the hardest things to say and do especially when it comes to a person whom you shared wonderful memories with for many years. You may not be so sure of when you will meet again or if your paths will cross again.
Other than saying goodbye to the family when it is time to work overseas, bidding farewell to the employers and colleagues you served when working as an OFW can be tearjerking and hard too.
Goodbye is the Hardest Word
This is exactly what happened to an OFW from the Middle East and her employer. Tears ran down not only on the OFW’s face but also her employer when it was time to utter their goodbyes to each other. The OFW is going back home to the Philippines.
As seen in the video posted by a netizen named Anthony Enriquez, the Filipino domestic helper was seated in a wheelchair when she bid goodbye to the people whom she served for 33 years. According to Enriquez, the Filipino took care of two generations of the family.
She looked after her employer’s children ever since they were little and she also took care of the children’s offsprings.
Positive Reactions from People
Due to the series of physical and mental abuse to several workers, the video of the OFW from the Middle East gained positive feedback from Filipino Netizens as well as other OFWs.
A lot of people admired the employers for treating the Filipina as part of their family already.

Hopefully, there will be more stories of good news to spread all over the world. It is not normal for a domestic helper to serve a family for 33 years, but with the respect and good will that the employers showed her, she was able to last being away from her family.
