A mother is a lot of things,
a helper,
a listener,
and a friend.
She’s there to listen to your biggest problems,
And to remind you that you’re never alone.

She’s a great cook (and a great baker),
an aspiring comedian too.
She’s the go-to woman for fashion,
and book recommendations.

She knows when you’re upset,
and she’s always there if you need her.
My mother is everything (and more) a mother should be.

I love my mother,
though it may not seem like it, all of the time,
because she’s a helper, a listener, and a friend of mine.
