I have realized at the age of thirteen that my mother has been the most influential person in my life. My mother is a housewife and the pillar of my family. She has been taking care of my younger sister and me after we were born.
I remember during my secondary school day, I always hated getting up early for school every morning at 6.15am. However, my mother has to wake up 15 minutes earlier than me to prepare breakfast and make sure I was never late for school. I really appreciate my mother for sacrificing her sleep for me, because of that I was never late for school. On the day that I do not have co-curricular activity (CCA), my mother would cook lunch and waited me at home. You may think that she must be used to waking up early every morning, but who will do that every day if one were to be given a choice.
My mother believes eating at home is a healthier form of lifestyle. She has been cooking dinner every evening, and usually it consists of 1 meat, 1 vegetable plus 1 soup. It can be an onerous chore at times, but my mother still continue making our dinner without fail. She insists that home prepared food is always healthier than dining out. She will try her best to reduce the amount of sugar, salt and oil usage without compromising the taste. Within my heart I thank her for taking care of my eating habit, because of that I do not have any illness like diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. She has definitely influent my life, without her I would be eating fast food like other kids would have because their parents are busy working.
