My Wish For All The Moms Of The World
I was on Facebook this morning, and saw that my American mom had posted this on her status. It made me want to write about it:
"To all the UNSELFISH MOMS out there who traded sleep for dark circles, salon haircuts for ponytails, long showers for quick showers, late nights for early mornings, designer bags for diaper bags & WOULDN'T CHANGE A THING. Lets see how many Moms can actually post this. Moms who DON' T CARE about what they gave up....and instead, LOVE what they got in return! Post this if you LOVE your LIFE as a MOM!"
I love my moms above everything in the world. Yes, in plural. I have one biological mom, that I lived with the first almost 17 years of my life, and then my host mom American mom (since she's not hosting me anymore) that I lived with during my exchange student year. Now I'm back to living with my biological mom again, until summer at least. Then I will move out because I will be finished with high school and ready to take another step forward in my life. And I know that my mothers will love and support me and stand by my side every step of the way.
Like this status above says, mothers sacrifice a lot for their children. And being the oldest, I feel like I was the one most of the sacrifices was made because of. I am happy my mom made these sacrifices for me, or my life would never have been like this. And I hope that someday in the future I will be able to make the same sacrifices to have children of my own. Not in another 7-10 years, though.
Mothers sacrifice for their children. But I am not a child anymore. I am 18 years old, and I don't need my mom in the same way as I did before, I am capable of taking care of myself. I therefore want my mom to get back what she sacrificed for me. I want her to spoil herself and not worry about me so much.
My wish for all the moms of the world, is that their children will want to give back to their mothers what the mothers sacrificed for them. Moms are awesome, moms are necessary, and moms deserve to be spoiled again. To sleep in in the morning, go to a spa, get a new hair cut and a manicure, to walk around with a new hand bag or go out for a night in a new outfit and high heels. To fulfill the dream they gave up on when they became pregnant.
Moms should get this one thing in return from their children when their children have become adults. That is my wish for all the moms of the world.
