Kirsten: My Mother

My mother is one of the sweetest, most selfless and caring persons I know. She is quick to drop everything to help someone in need. I know her love for me is unconditional. No matter how different our opinions, beliefs, and viewpoints are; her love, support, and wish for my happiness is unwavering.

I was always quiet and pretty closed emotionally. I had a difficult time opening up and expressing my feelings while I was growing up. My mother could always tell when something was bothering me, and she would sit and wait very patiently until I was ready to talk.

I love that my mom introduced me to classical music; she constantly had it playing. I think this is how I came to appreciate it so much. I love that she was always home when we returned from school. I enjoyed cooking and baking with her, and I’m grateful that she passed to me her fervor and knowledge. I appreciate the way she dealt with my sisters and I when we bickered and fought; she would sing us, either “Love at Home,” or “Let Us Oft Speak Kind Words To Each Other.” Though we acted annoyed by this, her approach was effective.

I love my mom. She has been a wonderful example and I am grateful for her tremendous love, support, and encouragement.
