My mother is an inspiration to me because she has been through many complications in her life. Although she has been through hardships she has always over come them to give her children, which includes me the love, support, and strength I need to carry on. My mother was the third oldest out of six children. She grew up providing my uncles and aunts with everything they need. She was practically a parent and didn't have the fun children should have. Don't get me wrong she had her share of fun, however she was forced to grow up early and begin making her decisions based on the better for the family. She was then put in a foster home at age 17. She got in with the wrong crowd to help my family and began to do bad things. As she progressed and missed her family she began to strive for good. She was released to her parents on good behavior. She eventually got her GED. Finally she began learning and trying to fulfill her dreams. She met my dad however faced many consequences with being with him and they split up. She then met her husband and they have been together for 14 years. During there time they had my sister. They have raised us to be great children. All my ways and views are based upon my moms and the right ones. She has given me everything even when she has nothing. She has taught me things that will better my future and help me through life. Now that her dreams have been full filled she recently took her husband to the doctor and was told he has at least two to four years left on earth. He was diagnosed with Pleural Blebs. She is now losing something that means the most to her besides me and my sister.
Word of advice live your life with your family and never look back. Things may happen but better things will happen later if given time. Always no there is always something to live for no matter how big or small you think your life may be. Stay strong and fulfill your dreams.
