I Appreciate Everything That My Mom Does for Me

My mom told me that she would take me to look at apartments for rent in North Charleston SC after she learned that I would be going ot the community college there. She knew that I wanted to get my two year degree, and then transfer to a larger school so that I could graduate after 4 years. I knew that I was the only person who has gone to college in my family, but I didn’t realize what a big deal that was to my mom. She told me that she is very proud of me for making sacrifices so that I can go to school. because of that, she wanted to pay for my first six months of rent so that I could just focus on my classes.

Mom and I have been very close. My dad ditched the two of us when I was a small baby. My mother has had to do everything on her own with me. When I grew older, I was a little tyrant and gave her a lot of grief. But when I saw her crying one day, I asked her why. She told me that she was doing all that she could to keep the two of us together, and she feared that if I ended up causing my trouble that I could be taken away. That shaped me up quickly. I realized then how hard she was working for me. I appreciated everything after that point.

I work hard now that I’m in school. I want to be able to graduate and get a good job so that I can afford to take care of myself and my mother. She deserves it. I think it would be great to buy a nice house that we can both live in. My mom deserves that, too.
