My mom is the most important person in my life. She has inspired me to show the world that I can still learn from the mistakes I make no matter how bad they were.
My mom has inspired me to be strong and to be there for my family. She was a single parent of four, working but also trying to be there for me. Even when I was doing drugs and getting into trouble with the law, she was there. When I was at my grandma’s she would tell me that I was my father all over again. My mom would say “you are not like him you are like me”. Her words of encouragement didn’t work immediately. Now that I am older and more mature I know she was right, I am nothing like my father no matter how much I look like him.
My mom is a big motivation in my life to this day. She is standing behind me on my positive decisions in life and confronting me on the negative ones. I will be leaving Generations soon, and will always remember all of the encouragement that she gave me. One day I will be able to give the same support and encouragement to my kids as they grow up.
My mom is special in a lot of different ways, but here are just a few of them. She always compliments me in my work and my stories. She thinks they are funny, and so do I. She also cooks me a special homemade meal for my birthday. She will always make sure I am healthy and active. And she will read me a book every night and give me hugs and kisses. We make up handshakes and jokes together. She tries to make me laugh when I am sad about something. Like, she sings to be funny, but not a lot. I am usually the one who makes her laugh. She takes naps with me when I am sick. She makes me a sick couch and makes sure that I have everything that I need. I love that! She is always there for when I am sick or hurt. I love it when she "nurses" me back to health because then I feel like her little baby again. We take pictures of each other and talk on the phone a lot when she goes out of town.My mom is always a special person to me. I love you Mom
Happy Mother Day
