I Admire My Mother

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,487 People

    To this day you are the strongest woman I know.

    I know I never could've endured all you have in your life with the strength and dignity you have. Although I know as mother you made some decisions raising us that you later decided you didn't agree with (an experience I'm sure I'll find out about myself someday when my kids are...

    I love my mother very much

    even though we hardly get along. In fact it gets very volatile at times, but i admire her strength and her ability to endure. She is the reason discipline and the will to keep going runs through my veins. When I finally gain the career success and the future I want, I'll know...

    My mother is my inspiration

    for a lot of things. We don't always see eye to eye, but she's gone through so much. She's given birth to eight kids (I'm the second youngest); lost the love of her life, (my father) the man who had been there for her ever since they were children to an awful accident; worked...

    Survivor

    I do admire my mother. She had a rough childhood, generally ignored by her parents and harassed by her brother. She was taught to stifle her emotions; they were a sign of weakness. This avoidance would prove to be a survival tactic for my mother. When my mother was 17, she...

    I really do admire her.

    Due to circumstances, we're not as close as I wish we were--both physically and emotionally. But God, do I love her so much - just the thought of her brings tears to my eyes at times. Despite having barely any food on the table to feed 11 of her own children, she took on 2...

    My real mother who is in Heaven is my

    I Do

    During my mother’s childhood, money was tight. My grandfather was an alcoholic, and chronically unemployed. My mom doesn’t talk about him much, but from what I gather he was definitely verbally and possibly physically abusive. My mom got jobs babysitting at a very...

    than my mother. She has done things I could never do. She's made a marriage survive for almost thirty years and she's raised four children. She's now an amazing grandmother as well. She can be asked to do a million things and she'll get them done in record speed. My father has...

    My mother has helped me through a lot.

    To be honest, I'm not sure if I would've been alive today if it wasn't for her. I've been through a lot, a lot of struggles and pain in life. My dad has been abusing me for as long as I can remember, and for all that time, my mother has been supporting me and helping me. She...

    I admired my mother very much

    because she loved her kids very much. She taught us the facts of life, how to stand up for our opinions, read to us and helped us with homework in our school studies, and so much more. She was a total woman who I miss. She passed away a few years ago and is now free from any...

    Mine makes me nauseous. She's poison and I have no doubt that there is a God because she is the devil. Pages like this make me so jealous because even though she carried me for 9 months, she gives less that a rats testicle whether I'm dead or alive. Id die if my daughter felt...

    not only is she just a amazing, kind caring person, but the fact she has put up with my dad for 35yrs and still is putting up with him. Not that my dad is bad, but I can't imagine putting up with a man that long haha.
