My mom is this magnificent woman, who does everything in her power to help other people that are in need, while at times she has deprived herself of her own personal needs. She has helped many families from her home country, Guatemala, and taken economic responsibility over a small boy suffering from leukemia and a woman who suffered from skin disease.

 

I love my mom for who she is and for the good things that she does, to try to ease the economic hardships that other families cannot handle. She is just like an angel from God to other families. She works every day as a house cleaner, to support my sister and I, and never ceases to give us a good, safe home. I know how hard she has worked, the frustrations and struggles she has faced. But she is a woman with her heart firmly set in her Lord and Savior whom is on her side, and has never given up on a situation, no matter how difficult. She is truly an inspirational little woman.

 

Sincerely, her loving daughter

My mom wasn’t like most moms. She had me when she was 21 and, because of divorce, ended up raising me and my brother on her own. She worked hard to support the three of us, something I never really comprehended or appreciated while living at home.

My mom wasn’t afraid to “get down on our level” and play with us. Sometimes my mom would chase me and my brother (even when we were teenagers) into her room and we would have pillow fights (sometimes tickle fights) on her bed. Once we were exhausted we would hang out in her room and talk. We talked about silly stuff, serious stuff, anything really. My brother and I always treasured those kinds of time with mom. She never seemed shocked or offended by anything we had to say. She just listened and offered wisdom when it was necessary.

My brother and I seemed to have been a constant source of entertainment for her, which was great because there wasn’t a lot of money to spend on movies or going out to eat. My brother & I loved to hide around our house and jump out and scare my mom. The all-time greatest scare was when I crawled up behind her pillows on her bed one night and, when she got into bed to go to sleep, I jumped out from behind the pillows. She hasn’t ever forgotten that one.

I recall having a chocolate pudding fight in the kitchen one night after dinner. The pudding was supposed to be desert, but somehow it ended up on all 3 of us instead.

Like most children, I didn’t really appreciate my mom the way I should have while I was growing up. Now, being a mother myself, I look back in awe at how incredibly involved my mother was in my life and my brother’s life. I value the time she played with us and I hope that my husband & I can enjoy our kids the ways that she enjoyed my brother & me.
