    In honor of my mother...

    What do you appreciate most about your mother?

    It's my mother's birthday today and I wanted to dedicate a post for her! She is my absolute best friend who has sacrificed the most for me and I am not even exaggerating how grateful I am to have her in my life.

    I appreciate her intelligence, and how she proves that a college education does not define one's intellect.

    I appreciate her constant gratuity, for teaching me the ways of life, and how to treat people with love and kindness.

    I appreciate her soft spoken demeanor, and how she is able to remain calm but still be secure in her own opinions.

    (only answer if you are comfortable enough to do so, I know that not everyone has good relationships with their mother and I want to be mindful of that)

    Have a great one,
    Alex

    Hey Alex!

    Happy birthday to your lovely mother!

    My mother was the most beautiful and wise woman I have ever known. I truly appreciate everything about her. She protected me from so many bad things. Now that I'm adult, I appreciate every "No" she said to me because it was for my own good. I'm who I'm today because of her. RIP mother.

    Have a great day!

    Hi Alex!

    I love my mother so much! We are close and I don't know what I would do without her. What I appreciate about her the most is her example of generosity. She is always willing to help people and she is always there for me when I need her for whatever I need, I always know she has my back and will be on my side.

    Happy Birthday to your mom! and have a wonderful day!

    Happy Birthday to your mom! My mom is a fighter, she fights for herself and those she loves. She doesn’t let anyone put her down or make her feel any less than she is worth, including family. She is the strongest person I know.

    Re: In honor of my mother...

    I would say the thing i appreciate most about my mother is that she supports me. I didnt always have her support at one point in time she was led astray to listening to people who didnt know what the hell was actually happening in my life. But once she was no longer following the lies she came to my side to support me in the drama from my past.

    Re: In honor of my mother...

    good morning you guys,

    first I would like to start it with the poem that I wrote my mother and she passed back in 2005.

    in memory of my mother

    Lula latrice walthall

    hey Mama
    I have a question for you...
    a question that you can only answer to
    like Lulu where were you when I needed you
    like where were you when I cried
    no time for lies
    So let me guess your reply
    you were somewhere on the west side of Atlanta getting you getting high
    someone getting your groove on not thinking about me my sister's nor my brother you really need to give to flops about your mother I was kind of glad when you finally came to your senses when you finally realize what you had been missing
    a little mad that was a little too late once again I have to live to remember that day
    April 15th 2005 Crawford Long Hospital was the last day you were alive expired the day is the first day I can remember you telling me you loved me and it was the first I have to remember and honestly say I forgave you realizing life's crazy you get what you get so it's so it won't be worth pitching a fit
    R i p mam

    When I wrote that poem I was full of so much anger, hatred, and self-pity. That instead of taking the instead of taking hold of the two years to go to blessed us with to get to know one another, I was so stuck in her screw-ups, let-downs lies and disappointments that I never took the time to ask to get to know her.
    so in honor of my mother

    I am going to not ever get to the point where I can say that nothing matters not my child's know my tribulations I was always put my best flip Ford invented the best woman daughter. so I guess that I'm trying to say is in memory of my mother she ran stored in the Faith Love and Hope

    Re: In honor of my mother...

    I don't have the best relationship with my mother, but even so...I appreciate everything she's done for me and everything she gave up for me to have the opportunities I do.

    Re: In honor of my mother...

    @Muka10: Muka, Thank you! Your mother seemed like an amazing person, and I'm glad to know that she shaped you into the person you are today. I know she is looking down proudly at everything you've accomplished and overcome.

    @kltslp38: Hi Karen, I feel the same way about my mother! I'm glad that you share such a strong bond with her still. My mother always puts everyone above herself, and sometimes I wish she would prioritize her own happiness and needs more. Thanks for the greeting!

    @dgriffay: Thanks! I admire your mother's strength and perseverance. Those traits are the best and I'm glad to know that she is able to pass it on to her children.

    @Lostlionz: I'm so happy that you guys have mended your relationship with each other. Other people's opinions and constant need to control your reputation and life is the worst thing in the world, especially when it puts a strain to one of your most important relationships. I'm glad she's sticking by your side now.

    @Poetryworld: Thank you so much for sharing your poem. You definitely have a way with words, and I'm glad that writing helped you ease your transition with coping, and realizing what your mother meant to you. It's completely valid to have those feelings in the past, but it's great to know that you are able to look past her faults, and appreciate the time you had together.

    @Shybelle: That is completely understandable. Sometimes parents can get so caught up in our lives and try to control it- I know this even though I still consider myself to have a good relationship with my mother. It's okay to still acknowledge her efforts and sacrifice but still keep a distance if that is the best thing for the both of you.

    I wish you all the best! Thanks for confiding in this post! Thanks for the greetings.

    Re: In honor of my mother...

    There is so much I appreciate about my mom. She is one of the hardest working women I know besides maybe my grandma (her mom) because she will be 59 in less than a mom and still busts her butt working. She's a driver for UPS and although only part time sometimes when things gets busy she will max out the hours she's allowed to work.

    I also love that she is so caring and willing to help out if she can. She doesn't place judgment on people and understands sometimes people make bad choices but she doesn't let that define them. She will give 2nd chances to those that deserve it. Look at her and my dad, they just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary but from the 1st time they married as they did divorce but remarried a few years later. Things got bad but she took him back where most would have never done that.

    There's so much more I can say but I just appreciate how much she has done for me and the things she has taught me because I feel people like her are rare in today's society.
