I love my mother to death. She is the absolute greatest woman I know, and I idolize her. She has had 3 kids, all girls, been married twice (16 years and still going, yeehaw!), has medical problems up the wazoo and is always in pain, but she still keeps on trucking. She is strong willed and big-hearted, and she has always been there for me. She took a lot of crap from my biological father she shouldn't have had to, including verbal and physical abuse, and she gave up her prominent modeling career to have me, even when my biological father wanted her to have an abortion (nice dad, huh!). She put up with years of crap from me, being a more than typical teenager and result of a broken first marriage, but she still loved me and stuck by me through it all. Now, even though she has Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Rhuematoid Arthritis, and a metal plate and screws in her neck from 3-4 herniated disks and surgeries, she still gets up every day, in pain, takes her 8 different medications, and runs my younger sisters back and forth to school, pays bills, runs errands, takes care of as much as she can for the family, cooks, does laundry, grocery shops by herself, and loves our family to no end. In my eyes, there will never be a greater, stronger, more loving woman in this world, or in my life, and when she dies, it will be the most heartbreaking day I will deal with (unless something happens to my son). I could never tell her I love her enough, or show her enough. She sits on my highest pedestal! Tell me about your mom.

I idolize my mothers strength. She was a single mom and worked her butt off to make sure that I had everything I needed. My father never gave her a dime in child support, she did it all on her own, not even any help from the government. She's had a lot of struggles throughout her life and I admire her strength!

I know exactly what you mean. There was a good period where my mom had to do it on her own too before she met my step-dad (I've never referred to him as that though, I've never thought of him as less than my real dad, and I wish he was). She was working at a vacuum sales company at the time, and we were living in a small apartment eating tv dinners a lot and barely making the bills. She has always tried to give me everything she could. There has never been one time I ever doubted she loved me, no matter how much of a pain in the but I was.

My mom was a wonderful person. She got cancer when I was 10 and she still pushed on. Taking care of me and being the most wonderful person I have ever known. She was a strong, beautiful, wonderful person. Sadly, she passed away two months after my first child was born. After 10 years of struggling through cancer. But I loved her so much and still do. The best person I know was my mom!
