I Rebelled Against Everything

With Valentines Day right around the corner I had to think of something I could get my mom. She always gets my sister and I something, and since this is the first time I've ever had a job I knew I had to get her something special. Over the past 2-3 years I have been a very difficult daughter for my mother to raise. It doesn't help that she is a single parent and has been since 2000 when my father past away suddenly of a heart attack. I rebelled against everything my mom wanted me to do. I barely graduated high school. Last year I could probably count on one hand how much time I actually spent with my mom and sister. It really hurt my mom deeply that I didn't want anything to do with my own family. There was many tears shed by her, and times I'm sure she thought I was never going to be a family oriented loving daughter. Looking back now I truly regret the pain and emptiness I caused my mom. I'm thankful that this year we've grown closer than ever. I love spending time with my mom, and I regret the time I missed being able to spend with her. You don't get time back, that's a hard lesson I've learned. I'm happy I realized my mistakes before it was too late.. For that reason, for Valentine's Day I am buying my mother a Strength key. She is and always will be the strongest women I've ever met in my whole entire life.
