In our lives , we came across many people . We see new faces everyday. Many of them remain anonymous , some may be acquitances, some will become our friends but from that , only one person will become our idol. What makes an idol? In the words of Oxford Learner's Dictionary, idol is person or thing that is loved and admired very much. I supposed that everyone of us have their own idol either a pop, singer , Prime Minister , or football players. For me, my mother, or 'mak' as she is affectionately called at home is my idol since I was young.
Perhaps, of all the people in their life , a mother holds a special place as their idol, like me! It is she who brings her children into the world, teaches them their first words and mould their character. My mother is the most interesting women that I know. She was more than just an ordinary mother. She has influenced my lives in so many ways that is difficult to imagine my life without to teach people her. She always been there to share my triumphant and victorious moments, and when I had my share disappointments and frustrations, she was there with her kind words of comfort.
In my studies, she is the most important person who always support me to success. Being quite a fastidious person about her children's study, when she know I got a problem in studies, she always at my back to give me all the advices and push me up. This situations trigger me to be more struggle in my studies to achieve what I want to be in the future as I'm a girl who had a big dream to be a doctor. She always said that nothing will come easily until we approached to it and only the sky is the limit in study.
My mother is both loving and lovable although sometimes she can be quite exasperating at me at times as she will babble when I did something wrong. But I know that's all for my benefits. Mother also a very open minded , good listener and empathy person as I can tell her about any stories including friends and love. She always have time to hear it and ready to give a helping hand about my problems. By hook and by crook, she will try to deserve all my problems as she can.
Mother is very much a workaholic person. You will always find her busy with a broom or a mop in her hand, cooks, sewing the clothes, or she may be busy lending to her small garden and cactus with her green fingers. Furthermore, she is very creative person. She know how to sew beads on the clothes, make vase or basket from old newspapers, glass painting and others until although she is homemakers, she also had been invited to teach secondary school student and other people that want to learn art work from her. During my holiday before entered university, I also helped my mother to teach people until I had being called by them as 'Little teacher'.
She also very enthusiastic to learn new thing as now she take part in Arabic classes and reciting al-Quran classes because she know that religion is one of the most important thing as it is part of a Muslim's life. Every Thursday night, that her routine to sit in front of the television watching Forum Perdana Hal Ehwal Islam. She also a woman of fortitude , it is her belief that only the strongest and fittest survive in this world. There is no place in it for moaners and weepers.
In spite of this, that's why I chose my mother as my idol. Otherwise, I know that there will come a time when she will have to leave us but, I do hope very much that the time will not come forever. She will be my friend and confidant.
