5 Things I Admire About My Mom
If there's one person who has taught me anything valuable throughout my life, it's my mom. She is one of the most beautiful people I know - inside and out. Here are 5 things I really admire about her, although I could probable list hundreds!
1. She is SO selfless
No matter what it is, my mom will drop anything to help or serve someone else. Everyone in our community knows her as the most kind, thoughtful person who always lends a helping hand. She is constantly working on 700 things at once and usually, she puts hers at the end of the to-do list. She always makes sure each of our family members have exactly what they need before herself. And I can probably count the number of times that I've ever seen her buy or do something nice for herself (almost never). Even when I was thousands of miles away in Europe with a kidney stone, she was calling people and looking things up for me and researching people to contact and medications. She is the ultimate example of selflessness and service and I hope to be even half as selfless and caring as her when I am a mother.
2. Always my #1 Fan
I can't think of a time when my mother missed any of mine or my brothers sports games, events, or activities, she is SO supportive. And if there's anything we wanted to do or try, she was the first to cheer us on and help us get started - her and my dad are always my #1 fans! To this day, she is constantly celebrating my little accomplishments and victories with me and it feels so good to know I always have someone cheering me on.
3. SOOOOO Hard-Working
Oh my gosh, hard work almost doesn't even explain how much my mom is constantly doing. She works so hard at everything she does. On top of her job, she's taken on the roles of a tutor, taxi driver, cook, lender (lol), nurse, counselor, secretary and so much more. She has taught me to always work hard and to do things right. I am always amazed at how many things she manages to do on a daily basis.
4. The insane integrity
I have always admired how easy it seems for my mom to stick to anything and everything she commits to. She keeps her word and she stands by her beliefs. She's very honest, trustworthy and holds herself to high standards. I have let her down several times with my mistakes, but she continues to show love and be an example of true integrity and I love that!
5. Humble is an understatement
You'd think that someone as great and as beautiful as her would somehow catch onto the fact that they're incredible and let it go to their head a little bit... haha. Not my mom! Although she's superwoman, she is the most humble human on earth and I love that about her. Even though she deserves the world, she's never flashy or looking for any sort of extravagant recognition. She's incredible and there aren't words to describe it.
