My mother is not just another woman. She is extraordinary.

I know her for 35 years and 2 months, I know her very well, and I had learned to love her since the day we first met. My whole world does not only revolve around her, but she is the most influential person who inspires me. She is my “mother”. My mother is not just another woman. She is extraordinary.

My mother brought up 3 children when my dad working in oversea since I was 6 years old. My mother brought me up until 27 years old before my dad came back from oversea at year of 2008. She had been working hard for the past 20 years to feed and educate us. She has been my teacher, counselor and friend for most of my life. For me, she is a source of motivation and a reminder of what true love really means. Her good character and honesty and generosity make her the type of person everyone can count on in her neighborhood. She also is the one person who I feel close enough to tell some of my biggest joys and pains. My relationship with my mother is one that I really need in my life.

In a world where parents sometimes make you mad, I realize that I could never be where I am today had it not been for the sacrifice and motivation of my mother. I will always respect the influence that she has had on my life, and will take all that she has taught me as a motivation to be all that I can be while reaching my goals.

Mummy, I Love you.
