Why Do We Admire Someone?
As we grow older, we find someone to look up to. Apparently everyone has someone that they admire. Most of my friends admire movies stars or athletes. Have you ever thought of about who you admire? Well, I certainly have. The person I admire the most is neither world famous nor a multimillionaire. I save my admiration for a special woman, my mother. She taught me to keep moving even though I’m close to giving up, she believes that there is always something special waiting for me, you just need to have faith and believe in yourself. There is one time that I wanted something really bad but she said no and told me that “want” is different from “need”. She told me that material things are not important we should be happy with what we have and be thankful for it. During my childhood life there are times that I hated her because she often scold me, but then I realized why she does that because it’s their way of showing their love and that, it is not us that they get mad at it’s what we did wrong.
My mother takes a big role in my life. Without her I don’t know what would I had done with my life. I admire her for so many things she has done, she has overcome so many obstacles that she is more like a hero to me. When I was a little kid we came to the U.S. from Mexico because she wanted for us to have a better education. She knew it was going to be hard, but she has always wanted the best for me and my brothers. When we came to the U.S. and we were going to really bad economic problems. My dad check wasn’t enough to support the family so, she had to go and sell tamales outside church and in parking lots to put food in the table. There was a time were she had to sell all her jewelry everything she had so we can survive. If it wasn’t for all her hard work and effort she put in we would had never been able to come out of that one. That just one of many things she has done for me that’s why I admire her she is my mom and my hero.
