“A mother’s happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.” The most important and beautiful person in everyone’s world is our moms. They are the one who carry us for about 10 months without any sighs or complaints. Most moms do their best to be a great role model for their children, or even others; however, some of them can give up so easily that they leave their family scarred for life. My mom also belongs to one of these strong, compassionate and understanding moms.
She is a inspiring hero in my life because she is supportive for other family members, and is determined for our family to become the best mother. My mother illustrated her protection as a best assistance through her life to family members. Especially for me, I was first-born child for her so that she abetted me anytime and anywhere I went. For example, when I was in the kindergarten, she left a post-it note on the back seat of my bicycle every day. She always used to say that “No matter what bad things happen to you, I always believe that you can handle it because you are my son. I love you.” My mom wrote this kind of letter differently every day.
It was so shameful at first that I hid it as soon as I noticed that there is a tiny yellow paper on the seat. I did not understand why she wrote this especially only for me. After she left our family, I started to realize that how important these post-it notes were. Although she was not always there for me, and sometimes scolded me, she supported, encouraged and took café of me anywhere I went, and anything I did. According to her last post-it which was 26 days before she left, “I know you have become much mature now, but I am not really sure about your inside. Don’t you have to run diligently for the future as there have been some delays in your life? You should know that finding out your goal is always first.
I believe you, and hope you can think and behave more independently.” My mother was the only person I know who did not give up anything she started or decided, and sacrificed her life for other family members. My mom used to keep doing something secretly as the way how my grandma did although there was an obstacle ahead. For instance, she did not tell anyone that she became more illness because she was concerned that anyone who knew about this would waste of his time worrying about her; she wished that she did not want to be others’ obstacles. While my mom was staying at Korea to cure her illness, she once said, “Do never waste your time tearing because of me.
This is my life I chose, and have to bear. Even though something worse occurs to me, you just have to ignore it and keep moving for your future.” I could not give up for her as my mom did not give up receiving treatments for cancer in Korean, although it caused losing her weight a lot, and made her worse, This was a huge hindrance for my family because if my mom was not able to come to Canada again, we would not receive our PR, and live here anymore. However, ignoring what her doctor’s saying, she came back for us to maintain our life in Canada. We all knew that she would not live longer than at least a year. However, her life was not that long.
My mom was determined after she had morphine in the hospice. She fell asleep so deeply that she could not move and talk. About a few minutes before she died, my mother tried as hard as she could to open her eyes; at last, she did not open them, but what only she could at that time was crying. Only my family recognized her tear and perseverance which probably she desired to show us even until the end. We had to say, although she was determined, and did not want leave us, “You can go now. We will not bother you anymore; we have seen that you do not want to give up even now. You just have to rest in peace.
Thank you for everything you have done so far. You were determined enough to become the best mother in the world.” After we said this, she started to give up her life as she did not want to be an obstacle for our family. . Can all mothers overcome this circumstance and assist others as what my mother did? Most moms probably are able to be supportive to their family members and perseverance on what they have to face. My mom was not only a mother to our family but she also became the best mother as she showed us her encouragement, support to others and determination what she wished to be done.
My mother illustrated how much she could help and believe in me no matter what happens between us; moreover, my mom did not give up what she started although any hindrances, which seemed painful, challenging and complicated, occurred to her. Therefore, my mom is my hero who inspired me as she was abetting and determined.
