She supports me, and the decisions I make, showed me that success comes from hard work, she inspires me and taught me to always believe in myself. Whenever I am faced with a problem and have to make a decision, I know that my mother will be behind me one-hundred percent no matter what avenue I choose to travel down is.

Success comes from hard work, energy, dedication, and a support system. My mother is one of my biggest support systems and examples. During my first semester at college, my goal was to earn an A as a grade in my Anatomy and Physiology class for multiple reasons. One reason was because I strive for great grades, and after I received a grade I was not happy with, my mother was there to boost up my morale and to encourage me to try different studying methods that would be beneficial in the course. After trying out new study methods and having more confidence in myself I was able to raise my average to an A. By studying hard, and having dedication with this class, I was able to succeed. My mother inspires me to do well in school because she had it a lot harder than me. She was the only one in her family to go to college, and to graduate as a registered nurse. She knows how challenging the courses are in the medical field and is well aware of the challenges I am faced with in the classes. She worked a full-time job while attending school, to pay her way through college. I admire her dedication she had towards herself and her future. She believed in herself that she could get through college and become a nurse, and she did.
In conclusion, I have been influenced by my mother to do well in not only school, but in life. She has taught me that in order to
My mother, for whom I have a very deep respect in my heart, has a most hard working nature. She rises before any other member of the family and goes to bed last of all. She gets up at four early in the four early in the morning and after attending to the call of nature; she takes her bath in cold water whether it is winter or summer. Then she offers prayers to God. By this time, other members of the family also begin to rise. My father is the first amongst them. Gradually my brothers and sisters all get up.
My mother’s first care is to prepare my younger brother, Mohan and younger sister, Kala, for school. She gives them a bath, dresses their hair and clothes them. Then she prepares refreshment which consists of milk and snacks or some other combination. As my father goes to office at 9:30 a.m. my mother has to prepare meals for him early in time. We are not rich enough to afford a servant. So my mother has to go through all the work of the house from sweeping the floor to clearing the utensils. She washes the clothes and irons them also. She does a lot of sewing work also. Our shirt and trousers are mostly made by her. She also knits our sweaters and pull over’s to be used in winter.
My mother has a religious bent of mind. She observes a fast on religious occasions and spends quite a good deal of time in reading Holy books. Sometimes she reads out excerpts from the Ramayana or the Mahabharata or some other such book to us. Her life is an example of hard work and devotion. Under her guidance and inspiration, we find a new zeal in life. All of us, brothers and sisters, have learnt from her to make a proper use of our time and avoid bad company. She has taught us to avoid the use of indecent language. We have been taught to be courteous and polite to others.
My mother takes us with her when she goes to attend social functions like marriages or birthday parties. She loves me very much and at times, imparts advice to me. When she goes out for shopping, I am sometimes with her and she buys me things of my choice. Father has great respected for the care and patience with which mother keeps the family. I fact, my mother is the pillar of the structure of household life. If she is out of the house even for a day, we feel very sad and uneasy.
At night after supper the whole family assembles for general talks and discussion’s although my father is much more educated than my mother, she is the centre of family meetings and she shows extra ordinary ability in discussing a point. She is so wise that everybody has to respect her viewpoint. Sometimes she relates very interesting stories and the account of the experiences of her childhood is worth hearing.
