I would like to reflect on my life as a mother. Mothers play an important role in the family and it takes learning and practice. It is not an easy job because we learn as we go. As many as 21 years ago, I had my first born, a son named Graham and to this date I have watched him grow up learning the values and scruples that he has learned from me.
Watching him enjoy football, hockey and working on vehicles has given me great pride as a mother. My role as a mother changed when I had a daughter named Deanna ten years later. It’s a special bond so loving, so giving and I feel so proud she is a part of me. She enjoys ballet, hip hop, and make up and makes me happy to watch her grow into a beautiful young lady. Being a mom is a blessing in my life and has brought so much joy and love into my heart.
I’d like to close this by talking as a daughter not a mother and how much I appreciate mothers day.My mother was a caring and wonderful mother whom I admire and who has taught me to be the mother and person I am today.
My children would describe me as the most hard working loving mom out there who raised two kids as a single mother and doing a very superb job
It’s not easy to accomplish what I have as a single mother.
