An Everyday Hero
By

Everybody has an everyday hero. An everyday hero, though who they are and why they are our hero may be different from the person next to us, have at least one thing in common, they make a difference in our daily lives. Everyday heroes can be intelligent, brave, kind, loving, or anything else that you may consider as a heroic trait. For me personally, I consider my mom to be an everyday hero in my life.

One of the heroic traits I see in my mom is that she is always there for me no matter what. She is the one who comes to my mind when days are filled with dread and then, my days become bright once again. If I am going through a "rough patch" in life she is there, standing by my side ready to do whatever she can to make that patch of my life great once more, if not better than it was before. When I fall she is there, right next to me, ready to help me up any time that I need.

Another trait my mom has that makes her an everyday hero in my life, is that she always has time to lend a listening ear and comfort those around her. No matter how petty something bugging me may be, she will sit there right beside me until I have finished speaking out. She then hugs me close and manages to find the perfect thing to say. She does this time and time again always ready to lend yet another listening ear and a flow of comforting words. Everyday it comforts me knowing that once I get home all my worries or complaints will look trivial after spending a few seconds with her.

This trait, is the last in the order of writing, but not in importance, for that is a fact that I will not counteract. The trait my mom possesses that I find to be her best, is the fact that she always has had the unconditional love that I think all heroes must possess. No matter whats done, said or expressed she will be there with a love that always forgives, and never fades away. The only way her love ever changes is the fact that it grows stronger

    One kind of hero that exists all over the world is the everyday hero. The person that I consider my everyday hero is my mother. The qualities that make her my hero are her way of doing things, and also how she sacrifices herself for me. For example, she is responsible and shows her stronger side in front of us when we are facing difficult times. Also she is so lovely that almost everyone likes her when they meet her. She always says to me that her duties are to look after me but at the same time to give me the freedom to make mistakes and find bright sides of my mistakes. The way that she influences me is that I see that sometimes she leaves what she is doing for her to take care of me. Even though many people argue that heroes are not real, I will disagree with them because I believe that everybody has a hero who protects them and looks after them.…

    An important quality I admire about my mother is her strength. I grew up with a single mother that was both a mother and a father to me. I never really focused on not having a dad around; it wasn’t as important as having our mom, who was always there for us. No matter how hard it was for her at times she always found strength. Strength, to be able to help her daughters whenever they needed something. Strength, to work and provide us with a good home. The greatest strength I have l admire about my mother is the power to keep fighting when everyone expects you to give up. Her strength has molded me and made me into who I am today. I’m someone that’s looking to better her life with hard work and perseverance.…

    My hero is my mom. My mom is a person who has many responsibilities, but is always willing to give her time to help others. She always understands what I am going through. She knows what’s it like being a fifteen year old and going through high school. She is always there for me when I need help with homework or advice on how to do a presentation or studying for a final. She tells me what are the best things to do and the bad things not to do about relationships, friendships, and in school. “Everyone in this world makes mistakes, no one’s perfect, but if you put in the effort to try and do your best, that’s all that counts.” This is the quote my mom told me once and told me to always remember it because it is something that will help me with life. My mom has given a lot of…

    When people hear the word “hero” they automatically think of superman, batman, Spiderman, etc. however they seem to forget that we have heroes walking the streets of the community. My mother is my hero, why? When I was younger, I jammed my hand in the wardrobe door, obviously I had started crying.

    I’ve been in this world for 14 years now and all I can say is that I thank god for creating the women that created me that I can depend on anytime and call my mom. After all the bad and rough times, put downs and fall downs I been through; there was only one person that could endure my life. After all the mistakes I've done through the past years, it was her who helped me out. And those times when I was heartbroken or confused out of my mind, it was her who gave me advice.

    My mom is an independent women who worked full-time, kept our family close, put dinner on the table and supported each of us any way she could. My mom did a spectacular job of raising us even though at times it was a struggle raising 3 children alone. Through the years of watching her as we grew into teenagers we gained our own independence around the house, at school and in our personal lives. The great example my mom set for us allowed us to become successful in our personal and professional lives by making good decisions, working hard towards our goals, and taking responsibility for our actions. Growing up was not always easy, because we moved around a lot which meant we always were attending a new school. Having to make new friends all of the time, we learned to find friendship in each other.…

    My Hero

    • 1645 Words
    • 7 Pages

    My hero is one that is very close to me. My hero is the person that gave birth to me. My hero is my mother. I chose my mom as my hero because to me that is what she is and more. My mom is literally the backbone in the family. She takes care of everything in the family and around the house. Before I began to drive my mom would take me everywhere. My mother like many others has been to the moon and back just to help me. She is such a kind person, she gives me advice about anything, she is always helping me convince my dad about anything, and most importantly she helps me get away with everything. My mom is not just my mother she is more than that, she is like the best friend I could ever have. I remember the amount of times that I had castings and my mom would drop everything she was doing to pick me up from school, take me home to fix myself up, and then drive to the castings wherever it was that they were. My mother is perhaps one of the mentally strongest people that I know. She has been through so much throughout her life that I don’t even know how she was able to get through everything. Most of what I know about life lessons it is because she has taught me. My mom is the most inspiring, talented, and intellectual person ever. There was this one time where she told me this sad story about her and her first boyfriend which for her was the most embarrassing thing ever and I really don’t blame her. What that guy did to her was terrible but she got through it. She told me that story as an example of how to explain to not trust anybody no matter who they are or how much you think you know them. My mom wasn’t born in America she was born in Cuba though she did travel to the United States because she was an athlete. Her water polo team was an olympic team in Cuba, therefore, they were invited to many places outside of Cuba. Out of her entire family she was the first person to leave Cuba at her age and the she left it indefinitely when my dad came. Of…

    Every morning, I would feel irritated with my house being too loud and too noisy as the sounds of the pans and pots from the kitchen would echo in my ears, causing me to wake up. My mother never forgets to prepare breakfast for me despite leaving for work at dawn and returns home at dusk. When I feel thirsty while I am at school, there is always a full bottle of water inside of my backpack to keep me feeling hydrated. During the times I struggled with homework, my mother would encourage to do my best, support me, and try to help in as many ways as possible even if she did not understand the materials I was learning. My mother, who plays a vital and significant role as my motivation and inspiration, is someone I strive to emulate. I have noticed many of her…
