I don’t have a better definition of mother than mine. My mother is at the top of the list. My mother is my best friend. My mother helps me when I can’t help myself, and even when I can to help out.
I find it amazing my mother has four children. Yet, in her own way, she shares all of herself with each one of us. She takes the time, energy, love and support a mother should take with her children. She is always there for me no matter how busy she is. Her love is ever giving and never ceasing despite what I may do. We spend quite a bit of time together and one thing I notice especially about her is her kindness towards others and compassion when one may need her. In some ways she is a mother to all of her flock, including friends and strangers.
I look to my mother to set the proper example. She will turn eighty years old, in another two months, and she acts fourty at times with her personality and enthusiasm and energy which, by the way she has more of than myself. If you want to know what life feels like, look at my mother. She is full of it, along with a passion and desire to live. She travels quite a bit as my two other sisters live out of state, and brother as well. She does her best to divide equal time to all of us, yet makes us feel we get 100% of her time whether we are with her or not.
What a wonderful example to admire, aspire and look up to for a mother. Is she perfect? I think so. Everything I aspire to be with my children including family traditions have all been taught to me by my mother. She is an amazing woman and if I asked you about your mother, you would most likely say the same. However, I would not trade my mother for all the money, gold, love or anything else in this world. Yes, she is that special. She has a sense of humor that is unique and special. She still prepares Thanksgiving Dinner for 2o of us in our family.
When looking for inspiration with my own children, it is my mother I think of and I ask myself what she would do if it were her making a decision or giving advice to myself in order to provide for the needs of my own children.
Mother’s are not perfect and they make mistakes like the rest of us, but my mother is as close enough to perfection as it gets. Please remember to thank your mother for all she does for you. I realize how lucky I am, when I hear stories of other mother’s with illnesses to have her as my own. She is strong on the outside, but her inner strength is what always continues to amaze me.
