local junior college and working towards her dream of becoming a registered nurse. Although it may have been a struggle, not once did my mom lose faith in God or decide to throw in the towel. My mom always finds a way to persevere and seems to make it to the other side seamlessly without a scratch. I strive to one day be like her and possess this inner strength. My mother is always quick to forgive no matter the issue. Often times growing up, especially in my teen years, I did not always treat my mom with the kindness and respect she deserved. I often grew irritated at the smallest, most insignificant things such
as my mom asking me how my day went at school. I often replied with a snippy or smart attitude, when all she was doing was showing how much she cares. No matter how many times I responded to my mom in this way, she was always quick to forgive and let go. I strive to one day forgive like my mother. My mother loves with an unending love that only grows and swells with each passing day. No one can truly understand a mother’s love until they themselves are parents one day. I see my mother’s love in cleaning up after my messes. I see my mother’s love in doing the “little things for me.” I even see my mother’s love in helping me pay my college tuition. As it states in Proverbs 31:28, “A mother’s love reaches far beyond circumstances and feelings… It sees past flaws and imperfections… And celebrates God’s gift of love, sent from heaven in the form of a child.” I strive to one day love like my mother. If my mom were here this evening, I would thank her for teaching me how to have the strength and the courage to overcome any battle. I would thank her for teaching me how to forgive and forget. Lastly, I would thank her for teaching me how to love unconditionally. My mother has shaped who I am today and I will forever be grateful.
