Happy Women's Day 2020

To celebrate International Women's Day, I want to express gratitude in remembrance of the most important woman of my life - my mother. Not only was she the strongest woman I ever knew, but she made countless sacrifices for my sake; everything she had done has shaped me into the woman I am today.
After a difficult childhood in a family with 5 siblings, my mother's challenges continued as an adult. She was diagnosed with cancer during her pregnancy, and 5 years later, she became a widow. Despite these tragic events in her life, my mother dedicated herself to raising me up. She took on numerous jobs, including hand sewing, house cleaning and babysitting, worked hard and saved every penny towards my education. I am forever grateful for her love and selfless dedication, and could not have thanked her enough.
When I found out that my girl friends have challenging relationships with their mothers, it made me further realize and appreciate how blessed I was to have had my mother. I sincerely hope my friends can mend the relationships with their mothers while they have the opportunity to do so.
Who are the important women in your life? Remember to celebrate them today and cherish their love for you!
Happy Women's Day 2020!
