Last month here in Korea was "Parents Day", a day for all people to remember and celebrate all the sacrifices our parents have made for us. Similarly, in New Zealand, my home country, last month was "Mothers Day" (Fathers day is celebrated separately on the first Sunday in September).

Mothers` Day is both a happy and sad day for me. Sad because I am not with my Mom in person, and I know all my family will come together on that day and go to my Moms house for dinner. On days like Mothers Day I really miss living in New Zealand and being close to my family.

It is also a happy day because I think of how lucky I am to have such a wonderful, kind and caring Mom. This year Mothers Day had even more meaning for me as I thought of myself in that role. It is a daunting, scary and exciting prospect!
I have tried to think over the past few months the characteristics I will need as I prepare myself to be a Mom. My own Mother has been the personification of these ideals. She has more patience than I believe is humanly possible, great compassion, amazing kindness and sense of fairness and always puts the needs of her family before herself. She is a hero. She taught me the difference between right and wrong and encouraged my independence. She showed me through example to always treat others with respect and kindness, and it will be returned. She taught me to forgive those people who have wronged me and always stay true to what I believe. And most importantly - she showed me the power of a smile.

And as I sit here and write this story, great memories and pictures flood my heart. I see my Mom smiling, happy and content. She is sick right now - she had a hip transplant 4 weeks ago - but she hides her pain and discomfort so that others are not inconvenienced. I wish her a speedy recovery and wish I could have been there to help her.

Mothers Day is in fact a really special day. We should take this time to reflect upon the sacrifices our Mom`s have made for us and thank them for not only bringing us into the world but for all the experiences we have since had as a unique and special person.

My Mom is the most wonderful person I could ever hope to know and anyone who comes into contact with her is truly blessed. I could never hope to have a better Mom than the one I have. If I can be only half the Mother my Mother is I would be a success. I love you Mom. Happy Mothers Day!
