When I first open my eyes upon the morning meadows and look out upon the beautiful world, I thank God. It’s a different morning. Why so it’s different? Every morning is the same right? What’s so special about it?
Yeahhhh….. It’s really a special day and a different day from the other for a girl named Emily. Of course it’s different from in the other normal day because today she goanna graduate. Finally she achieves what she’s dreaming for after a long struggle.
I’m Emily a girl which are be abandoned by my own parents once I born. Why so? I’m their child right….. yeahhhh…. I’m their child but the most unwanted child because I’m a girl which just will be a burden for them. A girl who will leave them one day once she married and raising me is just a waste because I can’t bring any advantage to them. In their mind set only a guy can take care of their parents on their last day. So they give me to their friend who hasn’t married. Thanks to them. They didn’t send me to any orphanage or aborted me. So, I’m thanking mine so called biological parents for this because of them I born and get a wonderful mother ever.
“Emily”!!!!! Get ready fast dear. We need to go to your graduation dear said my mom.
Yeahhhh…. She is the same mother who is god gifted to me once my parents don’t want me. Grace is her name. She is my mother. She is my best friend. My mentor and so on.
Emily: Yesss, mom….. I’m coming in a while….
After get ready in my formal outfit I enter kitchen. My mom was making breakfast I go hug her from back and kissed her while wishing good morning. “Good Morning mom”.
“Good Morning my dear”, she wished my with bright smile..….
After breakfast we went to my college. Wow…. I’m so excited finally the day I’m waiting come and I full filled my mother’s dream.
When my named been called in the stage, I went to the stage to receive my cert. From the stage, I saw her crying. I know it’s a tear of happiness…… a tear of victory…..
My mother saw my in her place where her parents abounded her because she is girl too. She lives her whole life at orphanage. After that she work and moved to a small apartment and became an independent woman even she didn’t get a proper education. But today she did it by giving another abounded girl a good education and good life. She becomes my pillar when I’m down. She told my background when I was matured enough to understands the situation. We never have any secrets.
I went and hug her with tear of happiness. Finally I did it… I became the top student and get the gold medal. A thank you can be enough to show my gratitude for mom who lives only for me. She sacrifices her life for me even she didn’t marry anyone because she afraid the guy cant loves me as his own child. She is women named grace but she indeed a god gifted grace in my life.
“Every child is the same to the parents…. No matter their boy or girl…..It’s only on how you nurture them….. How they became at the end of day. A girl not a burden to the parents but a gem that should be treasured.”
