Everyone must have a source of inspiration and encouragement in their lives. Theirs idol can be of famous singer or actors such as Tom Cruise or even maybe sports stars like Eric Cantona. As for me, my source of inspiration is my mother my mother is not a well-known politician or a famous performer. She is just plain working mother who devotes her life to me and that is what makes her so special in my life. She never fails to wear a radiant smile that is able to lighten up the room she walks in, my mother sa always be my side during the good times and has always been a shoulder to cry on during the bad times. she takes good care of me since i was in her womb. she nurses me when i am sick and has brought me up to be well-mannered and well-educated person. my mother is one of important assets in my life as she always encourages me to study hard and make sure i have a good education so that i can succeed in life. she has been very patient with me and support me in everything i do. she has done a lot to boost my self-confidence and self- esteem. she does not scold whenever i failed in something, she will console me and make me feel better by telling me stories about her own failure and achievements throughout life. i would like to thank God for creating such a wonderful and loving person for all the kids in the wide world called 'Mum'. i know i shall feel like someone has cut off my right arm if anyone should take her away from me. no amount of money could repay all her kindness and loves towards me. i shall always cherish the sweet memories of my mother for as long as i live.
