Why I love my mother

Posted in family, love, mommy by Tanae' A. on May 14, 2007

Unlike most people, I dont love my mother because of what she does for me. I feel as tho, the things that she does are only temporary and soon enough I will be able to those things for myself. Instead I chose to love her because of the woman that she is.

My mom is beautiful inside and out and there is a lot that I admire about her. I DO NOT WANT TO BE LIKE MY MOTHER!! She has lived a wonderful life and she has overcome obstacles and has still managed to come out on top. She has acquired the strength that my grandmother possesses and I believe that has allowed her to make it to where she is today. I do not wish to go thru life the way my mom did. I can say that I am an overcomer, but I dont want to have to overcome that many obstacles in order to get to where she is.

Today, my mom is a wonderful lady. Her first priority in life is helping others and making others happy. She puts her needs on the back burner most of the time just to put a smile on someone elses face and she rarely goes appreciated. She keeps God first in everything that she does and she prays her way thru any thing that is thrown at her. She has a heart of gold and a laugh that is absolutely annoying… and that is why I love her.

I do not love her because she provided for me throughout my life. I appreciate her but at the same time that is not why she is so dear to my heart. Me and my mom have not always had the best relationship ever but as I get older I realize that we are becoming closer. I love her for the woman that she is and not for the mother that she has become. I see the way that she guides people thru life and how she takes time out to help people when she doesn’t have to and everytime I see her giving of herself and the impact that she makes on so many people, I love her more. My love for her goes way beyond what she does as my mother.

I love her with everything in me and I know that her living will not be in vain because not a day goes by that she doesn’t help someone or put a smile on someone’s face. She is one of the most beautiful people I know and I love her because she is such a caring individual.
