Day 3 – Describe your relationship with your parents
This post was meant to be up last week but the past week has been rough on a brother. I thought writing this would be easy but the right words don’t seem to come to me. It shouldn’t be a struggle describing my relationship with the most important person in my life at the moment, should it?
Anyone who knows me well, knows that my mother means everything to me. After my father passed away, she’s been the backbone of the family and a strong one at that. If I were to describe my relationship with my parent then I will first start with admiration.
I admire how she manages to make so much with so little. How her prayers seem to get me through the most challenging of situations even though I felt like I couldn’t make it to the light at the end of the tunnel.
I wasn’t so close with my mother (studying in far parts of the country and not being able to see her for long periods) but as I’ve grown older, her influence in my life has only increased. She not only advises me but pushes me to look at things from different perspectives – a more positive perspective, if I may add.
There is nothing but love for my mum and that’s how best I can describe our relationship.
