“My Mom kept a garden for me”
My Mother kept a garden,
a garden of the heart,
She planted all the good things
that gave my life it’s start.
She turned me to the sunshine
and encouraged me to dream,
Fostering and nurturing
the seeds of self-esteem…
And when the winds and rain came,
she protected me enough-
But not too much because she knew
I’d need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example
always taught me right from wrong-
Markers for my pathway
that will last a lifetime long.
I am my Mother’s garden.
I am her legacy-
And I hope today she feels the love
reflected back from me
Mom’s Name & profession: Mankhanniang Zou, House Wife (My Mom is good in cooking and she is a responsible Mother)
My appreciation being my mom is that she never gives up in me and to my brother and sisters. The love that my mom owed to us is the treasures which no one can discover she is always my hero. The words that my mom taught me, the courage that she offered me, the boundless love that she gave, the desire my mom have in me is incredible. I love her so much; my mom is my Worldly God.
Even when I makes a mistakes she don’t ignored me nor she rejected me and encourage me to be a better person through my mistakes. She struggle her life only for us (her 2 son’s and 4 daughters’). My mom is the one who feel the most pain when I am failures, and she is the one who can be happy at the most when I am success in life.
Nothing is comparable with my mom. When no one loves me, when no one wants to accompany with me, when no one forgive me, Mom is still there for me; hug me and say “ its ok my dear”!!!
The most things I would like to give thanks to my mom is that “a prayer to God that she always pray for me and for my brothers’ and sisters’ which she still keep praying till today” and “thanks God for blessing my Mom and Dad; living with us till today”
I am sorry mom to make you suffer; your sacrifice for my educations till today. But I promise I will make you happy someday, I pray to God Mom and Dad will live long and pluck the fruit that you planned on me. We may be from rural places, a farmer family (where there is no electricity, no mobile network, and no puce road) but someday your son’s will lead you to urban life where everything will work with electronic. I am not a shame to be what I am today,; Its cuz of you Mom, I am proud to have such a Mother Like you…!!!
