It takes a queen to raise a princess! Every year, many of us struggle to find the perfect way to express how much we love our mothers. Since it is mother’s day I would like to take this opportunity to thank my mother for how much she has supported through out this competition. When she was my age, living back in El Salvador she did not get any of these opportunities that I do. She didn’t get to go to her prom, and did not get to compete in pageants or anything like that. I do my best everyday to make her proud. My mother means the world to me and she deserves nothing but the best. She is the strongest woman I know and all her hard work means so much to me. As teenagers, we may sometimes forget how much our parents love us and we take for granted how much they do for us and how hard they work every single day to let us do the things we love; whether it be sports, play an instrument or compete in pageants!

My mother and I on my prom day!

I wish I could have given my mother more today as a gift, but I was glad to know that my special card and red roses put a smile on her face.  I hope to be as strong as a woman as my mother is, as beautiful as she is and as loving as she is. My mother is truly my inspiration and I learn so much from her. Without my mother’s support I would not have felt as confident at the provincial Ontario pageant. Knowing that she was there waiting for me after my interview put me at ease and her kind words calmed my nerves.  Without my mom I wouldn’t be at where I am today.  I work hard every day and strive to be my best not only for myself, but to make my mother proud. I’d like to thank my mom for always putting a smile on my face and believing in me. Especially at times when I couldn’t believe in myself. She truly deserves the world.

She's so beautiful!

Here is a poem to share with all mother’s out there!

That Wonderful Mother of Mine

The moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of that wonderful mother of mine.
The birds never sing but a message they bring
Of that wonderful mother of mine.
Just to bring back the time, that was so sweet to me,
Just to bring back the days, when I sat on her knee.

I pray every night to our Father above,
For that wonderful mother of mine.
I ask Him to keep her as long as He can
That — wonderful mother of mine.
There are treasures on earth, that made life seem worthwhile,
But there’s none can compare to my mother’s smile.

You are a wonderful mother, dear old Mother of mine.
You’ll hold a spot down deep in my heart,
‘Till the stars no longer shine.
Your soul shall live on forever,
On through the fields of time.
For there’ll never be another to me,
Each melodious measure,
Oft the teardrops flowing,
Oft they flow from my memory’s treasure.

I do not know what I would without my special mom.
Happy Mothers day to all of the hard working and beautiful mothers out there! Every mother deserves to be told how much they are appreciated.

Love from yours truly,

Miss Teen Wellington County
