I did writing a letter to my mom for one of my writing assignments. This one 4 Stars
I want to start by telling you that I love you so much. Words can’t express how much you have done for me and cared for me. You are a person that inspires me everyday and tells me to never give up on my dreams. I know there were sleepless night where you would stay up to take care of me to make sure I was protected, to make sure I was loved, to make sure I was clean, to make sure I was fed. You are the one person that always overlooked my faults. Your best treatment was the love you gave throughout my life. I know all the sacrifices you gave for me and all the compromises you did because of me. You are one of the strongest people I have seen, you would fight everyone and anyone for me. I want to thank you for always giving me good advice, Thank you for all the chores you did from the home-cooked meals to my laundry folded. Thank you for always putting me first, Thank you for your words of encouragement. I am so thankful to be your daughter.
My mom immigrated to this country in the late 1980’s. My mom tells me stories of the difficult time she had when they first came to U.S. My mom worked so she could provide for her family, her work sometimes left her tired not leaving enough time to spend with her children. My mom made many sacrifices during that time, she would often walk miles just to get the grocery because transportation was limited back in the days. My mom mentions that they were both advantages and disadvantages of living in the 80’s. One advantage is being able to communicate with people face to face. A disadvantage for her was to be away from her family and friends. My mom says things were definitely different in the 80’s but her happy place would be her children.
Writing this assignment definitely took some work. It was hard describing all the ways my mom has impacted my life. I feel like I can never say enough about her. Sometimes words can’t describe a person or how you feel. This assignment reminded me how much I love and appreciate my mom.
