My mother is not a perfect one but she has made my life a very meaningful one... I will not be where I am now without her constant guidance, love and care. She has taught me to be patient, to wait for the right moment. She has always been persevering in all her endeavors that I too learned to be one. Her simplicity has allowed me to see for myself that simplicity is beauty.Â Her faith inÂ God has guided me to the right path, allowing me to live a good life that is centered on God, and her belief that God hears and answers our prayers have led to a life of prayer, trusting and having faith in the Lord. She has always encouraged me to pursue my interests may it be singing, dancing, painting, drawing, writing, reading. Talents are meant to be honed and used and shared with others she used to tell me, so that when God asks what I have done with the gifts he had given, I would have an answer.
My mother is all this and more. And words are not enough to express how thankful I am for having a mother like her. I hope that I have also been a good daughter to her. Know always Ma that you are the wind beneath my wings... and now that I am a mother, I will teach to my children the good values that you have taught. And just like you, I will strive to be a good mother to Sam. Thank you, Ma for loving me unconditionally.
