My mother is the most beautiful person I have ever met. Her smile and laugh are captivating. Her eyes tell a story of strength, perseverance, wisdom and kindness. Her beauty is not superficial it is only enhanced by what makes her who she is. I am lucky to be able to call this incredible woman mom. She is my confidant and keeps every secret of mine locked away. She is my teacher and has given me guidance through every struggle I have ever faced. She is my cheerleader and when I lose faith in myself she’s in my corner screaming “You can do this! You can do anything!” She is my role model and everything I do in life is to strive to become the woman that she is. My mother has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met. She will literally give anything within her means to those who need it. My mother is the image of a strong woman. She has never left my brother’s side, never has she even asked for a “me day”. She worked day in and day out to provide for my brother and I. She made sure we were fed when she herself was forced to skip a meal. She made sure we were comfortable, happy. Our wants were hers as well, she put our needs before all else. I can only imagine what it must have been like to have been mom until this point. I can guarantee you that 75% of her gray hairs are courtesy of yours truly. I was a handful, a mess. My mom, even when I strayed, has never been anything but supportive of me. She took my fits of teenage angst in stride. She has loved me every moment of my life and she has made sure that I have known. My mom is everything I aspire to be. When I have my own children I can only hope to be half of the parent that she is.
I love you mommy. Thank you, for everything. I hope that you never doubt how incredible you are and how phenomenal of a mother you’ve always been. Happy Mother’s Day.
