There are always people in our lives that can be heroes in many ways, but my life’s hero will always be my mom. She influences me since I was born until now and also sacrifices a lot in her lifetime to make my and my siblings lives better. She loves us unconditionally, I have become the person I am today because of her. I adore her very much, not just because she is my mom, also such an amazing person with a gold heart, my best friend for life, an advisor, kind, respectful and strong person.
I am not her only child, I have a big sister and a little brother but I am my mom’s favorite child. My mom taught me how to be kind and loving but not to allow others to take my kindness for weakness, also to dream big and work hard to make those dreams a reality. Her life inspires me with confidence and great motivation on the road to success.
Most of my mother’s life is full of misfortunes and unexpected troubles. She lost her parents when she was 5 years old and has been raised by her aunt, she went through a lot in her childhood.
However, the way that she faces them resiliently and strongly makes her a real hero of my life. I found that I am her favorite kid, when I was 5 old years, I begged her to take me to my Godmother, then she said; “No, I don’t have time to take you there”.
I didn’t like her answer at all, and the next day I went to school, it was Friday but I didn’t come back home. I told my Godmother’s sister, who was 15 old years that my mom told me to “go with you after class and to spend the weekend to your house”.
She could not think twice and she said, “No problem, I will take you with me after class then”. She took me with her and when our maid came to take me home after class, she could not find me. She went back home crying because she was scared and called my mom’s office to let her know what happened. My mom could not imagine that her daughter was missing and she started crying and saying how she can’t live without me and took a day off right away and called for help from family members, friends and neighbors but nobody could find me, because my godmother never crossed her mind that time.
The worst part of her daughter been missing was that my dad was out of country for job mission. The next day, my uncle announced me through the radio and my godmother was listening to a radio at that moment and found out that I lied to her sister. She took me back to my house. Seeing my mom crying was pain for me, I cried deeply and apologized. She smiled at me and told me, I forgive you but do not do that again. She has a kind heart to tolerate my mistakes, and she gives me endless love but asks for nothing in return.
When I won the lottery (The Green Card) to come th the United States, I told my sister that I don’t want to leave my country because I don’t see myself living far from where my mom lives. My sister told her, but I did not know that she did. That day I went to my friend’s house party and my mom came to pick me up. When mom was driving home, she saw me look incredibly down; I couldn’t imagine leaving everybody and everything, to me that was difficult solution to make.
She smiled at me and said, “Tomorrow depends on what you are doing today” I pretended to be fine, and I said: I am ok, and she said: “It is a good opportunity for you, stop thinking a lot about leaving us. Everything is going to be alright. I promise! Once you get there just focus on school more than anything else and stay mom’s favorite daughter”. She encouraged me to be strong and to let God guide me. That was amazing advice I got from her and when I feel down, her strength and power inspire me to overcome difficulties. I have promised myself to become a strong successful person as my mother wants me to be.
