A couple of months ago Darling asked its fans to nominate women that had made a difference in their lives and always put the needs of others before their own. They wanted to give a special fan a chance to give that incredible woman in their life a BIG THANK YOU! They were touched by a young lady by the name of Palesa’s story and wanted to help her give her mother Emily a big thank you for everything she had sacrificed for their family.
Darling helped Palesa give her mother that much deserved Big Thank you and filmed the entire thing. Watch the touching video below:
I too, like Palesa, would love to give my own mother a special, well deserved and BIG thank you! My mother is an absolute gem. Without her, I would not be anywhere near where I am in life (literally and figuratively). Women sacrifice a lot every day, all around the world so that those they love around them can have a brighter and better future and my mother is no exception.
My mother is the strongest, most compassionate woman I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She is the feistiest, and most loving person alive. The first to lend a hand to anyone who needs it and always manages to find joy in every single moment of her day. Her positive spirit and her “this too shall pass” attitude always manages to get everyone around her back on track when they lose perspective and need to get back on a positive track. I have been influenced and continue to be inspired on a daily basis by her love, her never ending drive and her quest for a better tomorrow.
My mother’s life hasn’t always been easy but she has always had an extraordinary way of making things seem like they are alright and will be okay (which they always end up being/becoming). There is no one on this planet earth that has more faith in me, loves me, or believes in me more than my mother.
She may only have four biological children but she is a mother and a guiding light to so many. Her faith and prayers have the power to move mountains and shape lives. She is the greatest cheerleader any friend, child, husband, sibling and even parent could ever ask for and knows how to push you to reach for the stars and achieve your dreams. Mom, THANK YOU!
