Four years ago when one of those Universities asked for an essay on who was the most influential person in my life, without missing a beat, I made an essay on why my mom was the most influential person in my life.
Four years later, I still feel the same way and this blog entry may be three days too late to honor mom but it’s safe to say that with all the great things that my mom has done for us, it’s fair to say that I strive to make everyday mom’s day for her.
I’m grateful to my mom because with all the curveballs that life hurled at me in the past nineteen years of my life, she was always there. Of course, there were a lot of times that I wanted to leave home and just stop listening to her but in the depths of my heart, I knew that she was always right.
She was right about the school I went to.
She was right about the friends that I should avoid.
She was right about the boys who would break my heart.
She was right about what career to take.
I think she was sent on earth to guide me and she’s done amazingly so in the past nineteen years and we may have had arguments but no matter what happens, she’d always be that voice which tells me which way to go and I’d always be grateful.
Belated happy mom’s day mom! I love you and I’m proud to be your daughter 🙂
