My mom is an awesome mother. When I was younger I wanted to have other people's moms because I thought that I had the worst mom in the world, but you don't really know anything when you're young. I have a deeper appreciation of my mom today... A deeper appreciation of what she did and what she continues to do, today...
When we were young, my mom was a fulltime career woman, but the moment she gets home, she worked for us. Even though she's tired, she still had time to help us with our homework and she made us reviewers and mock tests to prepare us for the exams. She was also very active in school. She was a parent representative and volunteered for all kinds of school activities and events. I don't know how she was able to do all that and still remain as cool as she was.
I saw all of my sisters grow up and I saw how my mom brought them up, through the years. I never had a sister that threw tantrums in public. We were not brats and we were encouraged, instead, to work hard for our dreams. When you're young, it's not easy to see the good in things, but I know now why she had to teach us this. In the real world, you don't always get what you want... If she let us have everything that we wanted, then how would we learn the value of things; how would we learn the beauty in triumphs; how would we know how to tend to our own needs and work independently?
I look up to my mom because I know how difficult it must have been to be a parent to me... Also, being a wife now, I appreciate her even more. She was right when she said that it's difficult, but I didn't really understand that, until I became a wife, myself. I know other people also idolize their moms. Those who are privy to what happens in our household will know what I mean when I say, you don't know what my mom has done... So she's still the best for me.
How about you, is your mom the best???
