Happy Mother’s Day to all amazing mom’s!!! ❤
Mother’s Day usually fills me with a bittersweet melancholy. My mother was awesome. She was a strong woman, with a big heart. My sister and I knew that we were her number one priority. She dedicated most of her free time to us, and seemed to be very happy with her choice. She encourage us to work hard, try new things, and step out of our comfort zone. I never questioned her authority, she was firm, but her eyes was always smiling. She believed that participating in gossip and negative talk about others (even when it was true,) would give you a negative prosperity debt. She also believed the opposite, that by thinking, speaking, and treating others in an uplifting, honorable way, you become a happier person. She was a doer, but always humble, and kind. She focused on what she could do, on solutions, no matter the situation. She was no angel, but willingly admitted when she was wrong, and made her best to make up for her mistakes. She didn’t make excuses. I never heard her curse, or saw her angry. I did see her cry, but mostly I saw her smile. Her smile is my strongest memory of her. To me, she will always represent the picture of a strong woman.
When I was nine years old she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was horrible to see my strong mother fight for her life for three long years. All the way to the end she had her positive ”can do” attitude. She never gave up. I can still feel her presence in my life.
This year I’ve decided to feel grateful over the twelve amazing year that I did have the most awesome mom in the world, and not give in to any other feeling. That’s the way she would of wanted it. Being a mother is the most wonderful feeling in the world. I know that now. I know that my mom experienced that. Thinking of that makes me happy. When I look into my daughter’s eyes, I see my mother’s eyes smiling back at me.
Happy Mother’s Day!!
