I have always known that my mom is a very thoughtful person

I have always known that my mom is a very thoughtful person. This has become very noticeable to me over the past year or two. She to be supportive of everything that I am involved in from school to sports.
So far, this school year has been extremely busy for me. It seems like the homework has been dumped on. One weekend, I had a big project due the following Monday that I had kind of procrastinated on. I got really stressed and started freaking out and thinking that I wouldn’t finish it in time. My mom sat me down and talked to me. She said, “Lauren, you probably shouldn’t have waited until the last minute to do this project, but we can’t go back in time and change what has already happened. You need to settle down and finish this project. Freaking out and worrying won’t make it any easier to finish.” She stood up and walked out of the room to let me get to work. She poked her head back in and hurriedly said, “I know you can do it.” Throughout the rest of the night, I worked on that project. She stayed up later than her usual 8:30 bedtime to help me proofread and sculpt things out of clay. She took a small break to make us tea and then she came back and helped me finish.
After that was over, it really made me think about how much my mom loves me. It made me realize that she is very willing to give up her time to help people who she loves.
When I was little, we never had pets, accept for fish, because my mom didn’t like them at all. When I was in first grade, she finally gave in and let us get two cats. It was a very selfless thing to do. Now that I am older, I realize that she really doesn’t like animals but she let us get them anyways because she knew it would make us happy.
She really loves spending time with her family. This is a good thing because she is a mom. She takes off a lot of time from work in December so that she can spend time with us. She spends her December days baking and decorating with us which is really cool. I can tell by everything she does that she really values family time. I really admire her passion for our family. I hope that when I grow up I share that passion with her.
