My mum is my hero. Literally.
Without her, I'd probably not exist. Or I would be starving. But she's here, guiding me through thick and thin, always loving me, never faltering. Yes we have arguments, yes we get angry at each other, but guess what? We put all that behind us, and we don't talk about it. Just yesterday we had an argument, but now I'm eating a plate of freshly baked cookies. She always helps me with school when I need, saving me more than once from overdue work, helping me bang on and do it, always there for me.
Sometimes I think she is strict, but she isn't. Well, I guess she is, but in a good way. She is teaching me always, helping me always, loving me. Always. When she is angry, she still loves me, when I'm angry at her, I know inside that I love her. We've laughed together, cried together... well, she cried, and it's mostly when we watch Disney movies, so...
My Mum is my hero. Always there for me. Always.
Happy Mother's Day, Mum. Enjoy it. You're my hero.

My mother is a nurse. She has been working so many days due to this Coronavirus. She is a lifesaver to her patients and even though this virus is scary and is life or death, she puts so much work into helping others with the virus. I'm glad that I know that she is helping anyone that she could help at the hospital. My mother is a hero. She is the type of person that has worked so hard and that will keep working hard to help others that need help.

Mother, you don't know how much I love you and I will love you. Of course, you must be able to imagine it very well because there is no person in this world who is capable of loving in such an immense way as you. I am trying, I assure you, but I am not able to express everything that comes to my heart when I think of you. You are a great woman, full of titles that you can not boast about, and so strong that you can with everything before something takes the happiness of those you love most.
When I was a child I thought you were a kind of superheroine, that was a long time ago... but today I am fully convinced that you are. Titled in love, at every moment you have taken care of my wounds in the knees and in the heart, healing with your kisses all my pain.
Mother, you were my babysitter, my nurse, my confessor, my teacher of life, my eternal companion... You have always known how to seal my sleeplessness and my worries. Someday you will tell me how you acquired that great skill, because being your daughter is a great privilege and I want my children to feel the same.
Kaydince K from USA
My hero is my mom because she is strong, independent, and faithful. My mom works two jobs, and raises five kids on her own because my dad can't be here at the moment. My mom has managed to stay strong and healthy for all of us kids and for the rest of our family. She manages to keep her smile on her face even when she feels down and upset. She suffers from many health problems and still is able to get through the day without having breakdowns and without losing herself. Overall, my mom is my hero because she is always positive and always has something kind to say about someone even if she has no respect for them, and even though times get hard, she still has time to talk to all of us kids individually if we need her. I thank her for giving me the life I have, because without her I wouldn't be where I am now.
