Five Things I Admire About My Mother

Happy Mother's Day. 
Be thankful that you have someone who cooks, cleans, and does laundary for you. 
Because of her, you always have warm food to eat, organized room to study, and clean cloth to wear. 
All those things she does every day seems easy for us, but they are not easy for her.  
Let's show our appreciations to all the great moms in the world. 

This is my mother. Isn't she beautiful? The photo was taken when she was my age. Aren't we look alike? I hope so. 

Since I was a little girl, my mother and I were very close. This is one is my favorite photo from childhood.

And today, we are best friends. This is one is my favorite photo from recent. 

Last year, I shared Five Life Lessons My Mother Taught Me. If you have not read that post, I strongly recommend you to read it. They are all very useful. This year, I decide to share five things I admire about my mother. 

1. She is always on the top of everything: She says there are no people who are naturally smart. If you want to be smart, you just need to prioritize what to do first. Only smart people know how to manage time. She is always well planned and ahead of everything, and she never do things at the last minute. I can always depend on her. 

2. She is capable of performing any task: She can multitask. She can also do a mass of difficult work fast and accurate. These parts of her I get very jealous. I can never multitask, I am a slow person, and sometimes I even make mistakes. Believe or not, she can do the work of three people. She is a super woman. 

3. She is good at keeping her goals: Once she made a decision in doing something, she will accomplish it no matter how much time it will take or how difficult it is. I am weak sometimes. If I set my goal too tough to achieve, I would easily give up. I have to change. I need to learn to not give up. 

4. She is always calm and stay positive for whatever happens: Every time I panic, she can calm me down. Whenever I fail, she encourages me to stand up and tells me to look on the bright side. I like her positive thinking and never shows her desperation. She is such a strong person. Someday, I will be a mom, too. I hope I can be a great example to my children as she did to me.  

5. She is a perfectionist: She is very neat. She likes to make our house clean and organized. She always make sure what she wears are washed and no wrinkles. She hates messy places and dirty things. She is a perfect house wife. Someday, I will have place on my own. I hope I can make my place as neat as my mom cleaned my room.  

I love you, mom. I feel lucky to be your daughter. 

Lastly, to all the great moms in the world, I hope you will have a wonderful day, and feel grateful for everything you do for your family. 


  1. Those things are just what a mother does.

  2. This is great, Xiaoxi! Has your Mom seen this page? I think she would really appreciate all the wonderful things you've written about her. With such a great example, you will definitely grow up to be a great woman and mother like she is.

    1. Yes, my mother have read this blog post and she loved it. Thanks for all your compliments.

      Would you tell me you last name? I know several people who named Michael, so I'd like to verify which one.
