What are the best qualities of your mother that you like most? Do you have those qualities too? Do you or would you carry on with those qualities with your own kids or future kids? I would say my mom is persevering and hardworking. She and my dad made sure that we got good education and finished our degrees even if we really have hard time on finances on those times. She is a strong willed woman and has positive thinking. Though she was suffering from cancer before, she had a fighting spirit and would really like to live longer. I wish I could have those qualities too. Happy Mother's Day to all moms!

My mom is also persistent and hardworking. She is very determined and would really do her best just to attain something. She work hard to be able to send us to school, their dreams is for us to finish school even if they didnt finish their studies due to financial problems. She is a loving mother and very supportive, even during this time wherein we already have our own families. Happy Mother's Day to all motheres out there!

My mom has a never say die spirit. If she sees something that needs to be done, she does it. She did everything she could do, and more. She went back to college in her thirties, got her bachelors, then her Masters in her forties. She did all this while while alternately working, and then being so sick we thought she was really going to die. Even when she had to halt classes temporarily she utilized her time to do everything she was capable of. She has a strong spirit, a hardworking spirit, and a loving one. If there is a need, she will meet it. I have always been told I look like my mother, but I would rather mimic her on the inside.

That's nice. I think our moms have same good qualities. My mom too didnt stop from working and learning until her retirement age. She finished her bachelors degree by studying while working. Then she got her masters and then later earned her doctorate when she was around 40 too. Thanks for sharing here.

Being a pediatrician my mother took excellent care of us medically. One cough, one sneeze, and we immediately got medications! Whenever I would go out of town or out of the country I always had with me a bunch of medicines for every possible illness that I could have. True enough all of us 6 siblings grew up to be healthy adults.

It's good to have a mom who is a pediatrician coz she knows well how to take care of you not only of your physical/material needs but also your medical needs and welfare. Thanks for sharing here.

My mother is an amazing woman. She has to be to put up with me. :-p She has a way of understanding things when nobody else will. I love my mom, and I am closer to her than I am to even my bestfriend. She probably knows things about me that a mother shouldn't but, that's okay. When I become a mother I hope I can carry her understanding with me. I dont know what she did when she raised us because she let us be us, but she instilled values in us in ways that we didnt even know they were being taught. Not once did my mother have to raise her voice with us and we were never scolded for voicing our opinions. I love that about her. I hope that I can be that understanding and accepting when i become a mother because there is nothing that really bothers her.

My mother is no longer with me in the physical world ,but I can still feel her energy. She was strong but at the same time very kind. Is hard to maintain this type of balance.

Dear friend, If I start my mothers list of qualities I hope it would be like a novel. I am like this here only because of my mom. The best qualities I could see on her is that she is loving, hardworking, innocent and honesty in every aspect with more caring not only to me but also to others too. My respect to other women was only from the basic of my mother's effection I got. Apart from these she is a good and honest wife too. I could only see my parents as made for each other.

My mom always taught us to have class. Something a lot of young women nowadays are lacking. Always loved that about my moms. Happy Mothers Day...

Hello,joyce! God has given all good qualities to a mother,she is most tolerant,sacrificing,and all the more the most loving qualities.we need not question for her qualities.all these are reserved for you and only for you.that is why mother is compared with the mother earth and the father with sky.as mother earth has enough reserve for your feeding so also your mother has fed you.so we must honour our mother and father.it is not the gift she wants from us,instead she deserves our service to her.thanx.
