I owe all that I am and hope to be to my angel mother also. I do also feel this way about God and my dad, but yesterday was Mother's Day, and I want to thank her for that.
Last night I watched a show about how a mother advocated for her daughter, and fought for her to get whatever she needed. Sometimes the enemy is too big, and the mother has to step in to speak for their children. And that is what a mother is supposed to do.
My mom spoke up for me with doctors, schools, and rude parents with ruder kids. People might not have liked her for it, but a mother does that when her child is suffering and needs her help. A mother fights for her children. And my mom did, and still does, even to this day.
I am thankful my mom taught me to be strong myself. There will always be people who don't like me for what ever reason, and who will not help me with what ever I may need. Sometimes my family and I are on our own, against a world that doesn't want people like me around.
True, there are some good people out there, and true, I am not an easy one to deal with. But when it come to a child with a disability, a mother has to always be ready for a fight. And a mother has to teach her child to advocate for themselves. She also taught me to advocate for others, to be a voice for those who have none.
She taught me that life doesn't have to be the way it is. We can fight for right. We can fight for justice. Sometimes we won't get it, but unless we try, we will never know.
Thank you Mom, for all you have done for me. I love you.
