Today I am thankful for my mother. The woman that always gave my brother and I the best. But my love for her goes beyond, I look up to the strong, powerful, take no shit, beautiful inside and out woman that she is. When I was six and my brother was one my mother decided to finally leave my father after years of abuse, cheating, and lies. She left everything behind, our home, our high profile lifestyle, our country, and our friends and family. My father at that time was the general of police force. We had it all, yet not safe. My mother bought us here (nyc) to get away from all the craziness going on. Here not knowing the language, not being able to use her career but she still somehow went to school, learned the language, got a good job and did it all alone with two small children. I never felt poor, like I had nothing and always lived in the best neighborhoods. She didn’t care if that meant she had to pay more for rent, as long as we were safe and in good schools. I love my mother she has given me the power to know if she did it so can I. Shes a determined, loving, caring woman that reached to the top with noones help but her own. Today I am thankful for my mother and all she did for us to be were we are today.
“All that I am or hope to be. I owe to my mother“..
