Mothers are really special people. They, to me, are the most special gift anyone could ever have in their life. I mean think about it, your mother literally carried you for months, brought you into the world, and ever since then has been your number one for anything and everything.
Of course your mother is not perfect and you have had moments apart, but all in all, she has been there for you in more ways you could imagine. It is their kind hearts, quality teaching lessons, scary discipline and contagious smiles that have made you who you are. Each mother is so special in her own unique way, and to me, my mother is the most special of them all.
Over the years as I have grown up with such a wonderful role model of a mother, I have learned much from her and I have become a little version of her. Before, I was embarrassed when her friends at work called me “Little Luly”. But as time has passed, and as I have matured, I take that nickname with much pride and humility, because if I am even a fraction like her, I know I am doing a great job in life.
Like I said, my mother, is the most special mother in the world. She has an endless amount of love that she shares with anyone and everyone. Her love may be tough at times, but that tough love has turned into many, many lessons to learn. She has taught my brothers and I how to be more than decent human beings, teaching us to be kind and respectful to others, understanding and open to situations, and to always be grateful for what our life has entailed.
While learning these lessons of life, she has given us more blessings and memories than I could count. From blessing us with stellar educations to sharing memories on family vacations to Disney, my mother has strived every day to make our lives worthy of a story to tell.
With my father by her side and my brothers and I following behind, my mother has lived a great life, and it is still just the beginning. As we celebrate her birthday in January, I know that another year in her life means another year of moments to cherish with her.
Another year of her awful and quirky dance moves, another year of her contagious laugh, another year of me giving her a scare around the corner of the kitchen, another year of her tickle attacks, another year of her happy proud tears, and another year of her love. I have cherished the past, and I look forward to cherishing the future with my special mother.So as I take the time to write this article of appreciation for my mother, let this be a little inspiration to you to refocus on how much you cherish your mother.Maybe try not to get so frustrated with her when she heckles you, maybe ask her out to lunch between meetings, maybe giver her a call after class. Whatever you want to do, just take the time to cherish her and how special she is to you and the world.
