It is Sunday!!!
Just came home…from the church.
I wanted to work, but decided to CELEBRATE…
to continue to celebrate my mom’s birthday! TODAY!
Even I came from the village and celebrated with our family, I wanted to celebrate in other way: to remember the good things about my mom, how much I appreciate her and how she influenced my character!
I made coffee and began to think…what are the words that could describe better my mom???
I think her SACRIFICE for others, for the school and for the society was the most what influenced me. I remember the hard time of working like a principle of the school. She tried not just to do all her responsibilities, but to do different project for to improve the educational system and conditions to learn.
From her example I understood very quick that I have to do something in my life for the society, not just for me personally or for the family. From the childhood I had the desire to influence this world, to do something essential in my life.
I liked so much to see my mom in front of people, how she was talking at the different kind of meetings in our village. I understood that so many people respect her, because she was talking from all her heart, showing the values in her practical life.
To be a teacher – it was her DREAM!
Because she is coming from a poor family of farmers. She didn’t want to work on the land for whole life like her parents, she wanted to be intellectual and she BECAME! She worked like a teacher for 40 years!
Love this picture when she was a student !!!
I loved to have her like my TEACHER of Romanian language at the school! She was the best teacher for me, not just because she was my mom, but because she was involving all students at her lessons and she was explaining very well that everybody could understand! She has the gift of teaching others- I loved this, learned from her and now I could teach others, too!
She loves work and to motivate others to work. She is the best motivation for my father to work and to have goals in the life, to have reason to live.
I remember so many times they worked together!
She is ready every time to cook our favorite food. One of our traditional food is “pelimeni” and “placinta”. She never will say: O, I am so tired and I will not cook today. ” When someone is coming home she will call and will ask: what do you want to make for you, what kind of food?
I don’t know who loves more: the mother or the father! They both love well!!!! To be romantic is value for whole our family because of them and because of our last name- ROMAN! I felt love from them when I saw them loved each other!
Now they have a new hobby- to grow chickens!!! It is easy to grow and it is help them to have a reason to live and could give us the meat when we need it! We sent chickens to Norway, Russia, Canada and o our friends in Chisinau!
I learned from my mother to read! Every Sunday after the breakfast we spent time together reading. now when she is talking with us on Skype she will read some interesting thoughts that she founded!!!
In Moldova we have a proverb: every man has to build a home, to raise a son, to dig a well and to plant a tree.
If you failed to do this, you has wasted your life. The last achievement for my mom was – to dig a well and to put a cross there! That is the symbol of her believing in God and every morning she is going to the cross to pray to God!
I don’t know what will be my last achievement…
but for sure I appreciate my mom’s ability to put goals and achieved them!!!
I learned this from her, too!
Happy birthday my lovely mom!
