News Obits School/Sports Community Opinion

— Dear Editor,

This last weekend my mother celebrated her birthday. When I sat down to write this, the words were not there. But then I realized why. What can you say about the lady who has always been there to always make us all the people we are today?

When you’re a child and even a teenager your mother is your hero, even though you don’t always agree with her opinion. I’ve found through life itself she had it right way back there.

I believe there is one word that comes to mind when my mother is mentioned to me, “Strong”.

If I can be just half the mother my mother has been to her children, I won’t have to seek so hard for the answers that will surely come my way. And when I start to doubt myself and feel bad, my mom can always make it better. She has made sacrifices for her family and even people she doesn’t really know.

And one thing I really admire about her is that she has enough faith to never give up on anything. She still is my hero. I need to tell her more than I do, even though I have an instinct that she already knows - I love you, Mom. Happy Birthday.
