 My Mom

" A mother's love for her child is like
nothing else in the world.
It knows no law, no pity,
it dares all things and
crushes down remorselessly
allthat stands
in its path. "
- Agatha Christie -

My mother was born in Rio de Janeiro. She became a primary school teacher at 17 years of age, married my father at 20, became a mother at 21 and some time before I was born she quit her job to be a stay at home mom. Almost six years after I was born she had my sister Renata. She's undoubtedely the strongest woman I know. My father passed away when I was 15 years old and she took care of me and my sister alone, being our mother and father at the same time, always doing her best not to let anything miss in our lives.

She loves musical movies, Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, her favorite color is blue and favorite food is chicken and shrimp. She loves Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and has the largest collection of Elvis records I have ever seen. Her birthday is on September 20th and her zodiac sign is Virgo. Her Chinese astrology sign is the Rat.

 A Mother is...
Someone who cares when others care less.
Someone who encourages when others ridicule.
Someone who defends when others condemn.
Someone with patience when others are impatient.
Someone who appreciates when others fail to notice.
Someone who gives security in a world of insecutiry.
Someone who accepts when others reject.
A Mother is a friend for all times, to cherish and protect,
as her achievements will linger for generations.

In December 2003, I was blessed with a wonderful son. My mom was a great help during the first months and she still is. I can count on her any time I need. I'm grateful for all she has done for my son Nicholas and I.
