Who Do I Admire And Why

Who Do I Admire And Why

My Mom and Dad.


Well that’s a tough one because I don’t admire just one person. I admire a few people.

I admire my dad because of his strong work ethic, my mom because she told me I could be whatever I wanted when I grew up.

I guess I’d have to say I admire my mom the most though because she pushed me to do things I didn’t want to do like learning how to drive. I was so scared but she kept telling me it was something I needed to know how to do and have a license to do it even if I never drove.

She said

You never want to have to depend on someone else because there may come a time when there is no one to help you.

She was right of course. I still don’t like to drive but I’m glad she forced me to learn and get a license because there have been times when no one was there to help me.

My dad, like I said, had the strong work ethic. He worked up until he couldn’t work anymore. I will never forget that day either. He was in so much pain that he was laying on one of the portable flats at his workplace and me and my cousin had to roll him around on it until we made him go home.

He was put in the hospital the same day, diagnosed with bone cancer the next day and was sent home to die. he lived for 2 weeks.

That was the worst 2 weeks of my life. Watching him slowly die and there was nothing I could do to help him. I never want to go through that again. Cancer took my dad and heart disease took my mom.

Anyway that’s who I admire.
