It took me a few years to realize what an extraordinary influence my mother has been on my life. She’s the kind of person who always has time for her kids, always interested in learning something new, would sacrifice herself for her family, and is easily the strongest woman in my eyes. Growing up, I know I haven’t been the best son in the world but if you were to ask her, she would say otherwise. Looking back, my mom is the most positive and important influence on my life.
My mother actually is an ordinary woman but in her tiny appearance shines an extraordinary fortitude, perseverance, an altruistic soul and is very kind hearted. The kind of mother who brought me up with her whole kindly heart, the kind of persistent woman with strong willpower who had to face the toughest challenges in life, and the kind of person who always demonstrated great zeal for every unlucky lives without requiring anything in return. She has a great willingness to help everyone's misery though she did not have much, my mother taught me more than any one else, not only inspired me to have strength to overcome hardships in my life, but also left me with invaluable life lessons.
My mother's life is the succession of obstacles and grieves. Growing up in a poor family, my mother must work very hard to earn her living since an early age. Due to shortage of material condition, she herself has trained an extremely strong will and ability to sedately deal with each difficulty and stand up to move on from her failures.
I vividly remember the calamity poured down on my family when my mother' business went bankrupt. We had to sell our house and leave for another town to begin from "zero". This critical time made every member in my family really upset. But it was my mother, the persistent and brave women, strongly stood up and started over again after this great adversity.
Each of her failures, her grief, and the way she overcame difficulties to move on...
