How Strong is Strong?

How strong is strong? Are you strong if you are able to carry a load of heavy materials? ...If you are a martial artist?...If you are the president? Superman?



Sometimes in life there are moments that we feel weak. There are things that are out of our control and events that we wish did not occur. There is one person whom I admire most and keeps me going when I feel down... 



She raised her 3 children basically herself... At her young age, she did everything to provide them with good schooling and a comfortable life... Everyday, she would wake up very early and sleep late to work. When she comes home, she sees to it that she spends time with her kids... She always had something nice to say with open arms. At times, she thought more about others than she did to herself.

Then she got sick. There were times she wanted to give up because of the treatments and therapies she needed to undergo... but even though she must not have been feeling great, she always made sure her kids were doing well. She would go out of her way to look after her children if they needed her.

If people would ask her about herself, she would say.. “I'VE BEEN THRU A LOT OF HARDSHIPS,DISAPPOINTMENTS,AND FAILURES IN LIFE,BUT ALL THESE MADE ME STRONGER.I DON'T CARE WHAT PEOPLE SAY OR THINK ABOUT ME.WHAT MATTERS MOST IS THAT MY CHILDREN LOVE ME THE WAY I LOVE THEM. THEY'RE MY LIFE AND HAPPINESS.IN THE END,IT'S WORTH THE STRUGGLE!”

SHE IS MY MOM!! She is the strongest person I know!
She is my rock, my angel, my soul, my life, my mentor and my best friend. She is a great gift that was sent down to me and my siblings... I LOVE U MOM..
