Have you ever been influenced by some important person that helped you to be the person that you are today? I have been. The person that has exerted influence on me is my mother.
My mother is small and quite slim. Her name is Elizabeta. She has an oval face with beautiful blue eyes and a smiling mouth. She is forty years old and she is a very active person. It always seems like she is in a good mood. She always brings out something positive and cheerful. My family is quite small now. I just have her and my brother,so we always hold on to each other. She is the most important person in our lives. She helps in my development, also she gives me all the things that I need to grow up at the moment that I need them and she still gives me all the stuff I need to become somebody in the future. For example, by just being there when I need somebody to talk to and giving me advice how to correct things that I have messed up. Also she still takes care of me when I am sick. She teaches me how to behave, and how to respect other people. On certain occasions I get mad, but later I appreciate her words of wisdom and understand them. I can say that she is just wonderful. On the other hand, my brother and me used to be very mischievous and made her some really bad surprises. One day she was at work, and my brother and I were home alone. We were playing a game and then we argued about that game and started fighting. He tried to hit me and I started running. I came into the kitchen and blocked the glass door, but that was not a really good idea because he could not stop and he just ran through that door and broke half of the glass. One part of the glass fell on him and cut the veins on his left arm, and the second part of glass fell on my head and my leg. My bulge of the forehead was broken, that is my eye was cut, and my ear was cut a little bit. There was too much blood on the floor. We were so lucky because our neighbor is a doctor and he came so quickly to provide us emergency help. He saved our lives and brought us to the hospital. In the meantime he had called our mother and told her to meet us there. We arrived to the hospital and she was already waiting there, she was so stressed. They saved both of us, and that took so long because of my brother’s veins, but when they finished we were no longer in danger of losing blood. Mother took us home and she was talking to us for a long time, but, in the end, she was not angry anymore and everything was fine. That was our bloodiest and worst event.
In conclusion, my mother is the most important person in my life. She went through some hard times but she was really strong. Thanks to her, today I can say that I am a happy boy with mother like her. Without her my life would not be as good as it is now.
