One of the greatest things in life is to have a selfless, understanding, devoted and loving mother. These are the words that best summarise the qualities of my mother. It is not surprising that the person whom I admire most is my mother.
A quality that I admire most in my mother is her selfless devotion for us. Her own interests are of little importance to her where ours are concerned. She can forego a good night's sleep without a murmur, nursing us whenever there is a need for it. Her personal possessions are few of her scheme of things our interest take priority.
There is also no gap separating us from my mother and we do not create that artificial barrier called te generation gap. To my mother I am an open book and, as a rule, she does not pry into my personal affairs except when i need help. She speaks little but has an earnest and patient ear for our problems. Whatever I do she is always there solidly with me to render help and assistance.
In spite of her endless domestic chores, she finds time to read books that have educational value. She reads avidly health magazines and keeps abreast with developments, both national and international by reading the newspapers. However she has a special liking for poetry and on many occasions she recited her favourite poems to all of us. Being well informed, she is able to help us with out studies.
My mother does not have a rigid list of dont's : she gives us freedom os speech and action but make sure that we act RESPONSIBLY and prudently. She is a disciplinarian and would scold us harshly, BUT NOT UNKINDLY. She is a diligent woman and we have cultivated the virtue of working sedulously.
To my father, she is a companion and domestic accountant. When he runs into a bad temper, mother's moderating influence has a telling effect on him. Of course mother has her own share of weakness but it is not prudent to be conscious of them in one whom I admire most.
Indeed I am very lucky to have such a mother...
