Day 303 Question 303:
Who is the most important person in your life?
Today my dad called me and told me that my mother was in the hospital. She had been having some sharp pains in her back near her left shoulder blade. I had to be with her. I stopped trekking on the elliptical and I headed straight for the hospital. My mom had been admitted and all of the tests had come back clear but the doctor wanted to keep her overnight and do a few more in the morning. I love my mom with every part of me. I love my dad more than life itself as well but my mom and I have this connection…this connection that makes her the most important person in my life. I sometimes think about the time I know she will be eventually gone and I can’t help but feel that my entire life is going to fall apart. My mom has been there through everything but it is within this past year or so that we have really been close and I have been able to really understand and value our relationship. I have wanted to give back so much to her to tell her thank you for everything she has ever done for me.
I admit to taking my mom for granted for far too long and I have now seen what a beautiful, wonderful woman she is. I cannot take back the past or relive it but I can make up for it in the here and now. If I leave this life as kind-hearted and warm as my mother is then I will die happy….and I know my mother would be proud. My mother is the most important person in my life because she has (unknowingly) taught me to love those around me and treat them with kindness. She has taught me that speaking out of anger and getting all worked up will never solve anything. My mother is the person that has always given me hope in humankind and if there were more people like her in this world….we would see a much more peaceful world. There is not a single person in this world that knows me the way my mom knows me and I think it is because of this that I fear her departing this life. My mother is my comfort in this life….she is the only person I truly believe when I hear the words “Everything is going to be ok”.
The answer is simple because this wonderful woman gave me life and taught me what love really is.
This is very beautiful. Your mother should be proud. You are richly blessed to have these beautiful parents. I lost my mom a couple of years ago. She was my best friend.
Don’t take her for granted. I know how hard it is when they are gone. I miss my parents every day. Although my dad died many years ago, losing my mom was, and still is, one of the most painful events of my life.
Your post has inspired me. I thank you for that. Tell your mom how much she means to you and give her a big hug, for your words have brightened my day.

I read this post today and I have to say, it inspired me. I could have written it myself. The sad fact is, I cannot. My mom passed away over two years ago and it still hurts. They say time will heal but I say, only time provides acceptance. I still grieve and with the holidays approaching, I find myself thinking about my parents. My dad passed away years ago and I still miss him. I recommend this article as a reminder, don’t take those you love for granted. One day they will pass and your life will never be the same.
When I read her post she states, “I sometimes think about the time I know she will be eventually gone and I can’t help but feel that my entire life is going to fall apart. My mom has been there through everything but it is within this past year or so that we have really been close and I have been able to really understand and value our relationship.”
Those were my words when my mom was alive. Those were my words before I said goodbye.
God has given you a wonderful mom like her! and God had given her a sweet and loving daughter like you!^_^
What a great piece to highlight your mom. You are lucky to have her and be so close. I never really got to have a good relationship with my mom, before she passed away 16 years ago. Enjoy your time together.
it seems like for most people our “mother” is the most important person,I definitely agree with everything that you said and it is like the exact words I want to tell about my mom,
hopefully your mom will feel better soon, have a great day!
Mothers are beautiful gifts, especially if they realize that motherhood is a privilege. I was so happy with your post and I wished that everybody has such a story abouth their mothers. I love my mother because she replicates a loving and caring mother as you have elaborated. Yet, I know of many homes that are far from this. I hope that our generation would be able to correct the mistakes of our predecessors.
Lovely post as always!
Beautiful tribute, Diane. My mother has been gone 18 years now, and I still miss her so much. Hope your mother is feeling better now.

A beautiful mother-daughter story! Love life and mother are all the same to me.
What a beautiful tribute. I hope she’s ok. Had to repost this as I too did not always appreciate my mother and now hope I have enough time to make up for my ignorance.
