My Mothers Love, I will forever be thankful

Updated on July 27, 2012

Love. What do I love?

Love. What do I love?... Well, I love my mother with all my heart! Although she is not with me physically, her spirit will be with me forever. She passed away when I was 13 years old, and although it's very unfortunate, that's not why I'm writing about her. I'm writing about her because I love her. I love her for many reasons, for bringing me into this world, for all the things she taught me, for raising me the way that I am, because, well, I love me, too!

I love her mostly because of all the love she gave me, the love that all children deserve to receive from their parents. I was lucky to have such a loving mommy in my life :)

An Angel that was taken away from us too soon...

My mother was truly an angel on earth that God took way too early from me and my sister, but I am very fortunate to have had her in my life for as long as I did. She helped me see the world in a different way from very young and I will always cherish the moments we had together. She did not candy-coat life for me, she prepared me to be ready for life's problems since I was little and even prepared me to be okay in case something ever happened to her one day and she wasn't around anymore. She would tell me ever since I can remember, that if she ever were to pass, she'd still always be with me in my heart. She even would ask me once in a while, to make sure I knew the answer to her question. And I knew, and still know now that she is a part of me and she is in my heart forever. She made me promise to her that the one thing I'd do for her was go to school and become something, anything I wanted to. And I did, I just got my bachelors this year, and I am planning on getting my masters very soon :)

Forever in my heart

I love my mommy for everything she was and everything she still is because I know I hold a part of her in my heart. I love her for trying to give me and my sister the best possible life she could give us. It wasn't easy but she did great and we had a great childhood. I love her for trying to give us all the things she didn't get to have when she was little, even though I know it was difficult for her. I love her for telling me that the man I was to fall in love with should have a good heart and that she didn't care what skin color or ethnicity they were.(Being of Greek descent that means a lot because Greek families tend to want only Greeks for marriage.)

I love my mother for giving me life, for teaching me all she did in the short period of time I had with her, for letting me see how life can be short, and so I live my life as happiest and fully as I possibly can, because of her. She gave me the most beautiful thing anyone can give to a child, love. And she showed it to me everyday. Thanks to her, even though I didn't get to say a goodbye, I know the last time I saw her I kissed her goodbye and told her I loved her when she was leaving for work. I live my life for me and for her knowing that hers was cut short. I love you mommy always and forever, and thank you for everything absolutely everything you've done for me and my sister!

      Sorry for your loss of someone who really loved you and raised you with love. Not everyone has that chance - even with the parent by their side the entire life. So, maybe it is better to feel such love for a short time than no full unconditional love for a long time.

      I have a friend who lost her father at the age of 10 and she was not able to fully grasp where her father went, even though she understood what death meant to some degree. She missed him badly and suffered a lot from his loss.

      Thank-you. Sorry for your friend too, it's hard but it has made me stronger. I'm always grateful for all the love she showed/gave me, but I will miss her for the rest of my life:/. Thanks for reading :)

      That was very sweet, what you wrote about your mom. I am so sorry that you had lost her when you were so young, but as you said, she loved you and showed her love for you all the time. This was a lovely tribute to her, and no, a mother's love never dies...I have four grown children and I love them all more each moment. ...and I have also lost my mom, but like you, I know how much she loved me!

      Hey EuroNinila,

      I haven't read any of your hubs lately so I popped by your profile to find something to read. My eye cached this hub so I started reading. Tears came dropping down as I read, I can totally relate to what you wrote. Me and my sister lost our father when we were children. I have never let the memories of him fade away. I know he is an angel watching down on us!

      Beautiful hub, I am absolutely sure that your mom is proud of you.

      Thank you so much for sharing.

      Voted up and beautiful!

      Have a wonderful day my friend,

      Chris Achilleos
