My mother is my root, my foundation. She planted the seed that I based my life on, and that is the belief that the ability to achieve starts with your mind. If it were not for Michael Jordan’s inspiring mother, we might not have known the former American profession basketball player (also known as my grandpa’s favorite player of all-time). This quote shows how much mothers influence their children, and as a result, these children influence the world. Mothers do what they can to plant these “seeds” in our lives to help us be successful and happy in our future. Today is the day to thank your mother, aunty, grandma, or other female figure in your life who has planted that seed that helped you grow into the person you are today.
