With group projects, essays, and finals all piling up this month, I had almost forgotten that Mother’s Day is just around the corner. But this special day comes only once a year, and to me, my mother is the kind of special that no one else could ever top. She’s special because of her one-of-a-kind cooking; all the times she drove me and my brother to our extracurriculars; her edifying lectures; and her sense of responsibility as not only the eldest daughter in her family, but also as a wife to a wonderful husband and a hard-working mother of two young adults. She will always be one of my greatest heroes.
As I experienced more and more of the world, my mother’s life lessons also grew clearer to me. A part of me regrets that at times, I wasn’t always the most understanding, but the other part of me is hopeful that I will continue to blossom into the supportive daughter my mother deserves.
The strong willed, passionate, and hardworking young woman I am today would not have been possible without my mother’s loving support and guidance. I hope to carry the valuable skills and traits she has given me, as well as to continue looking to her as an inspiration for making the world a little brighter.
Happy Mother’s Day!
