With b cry of joy ,I was born into the world.Tears rolled down my mother's cheeks .She smiled,and kissed me again and again, so tenderly and so lovingly.
Through my mother's love ,I grew up quickly.When I began learning to walk ,I fell constantly.Whenever I did so ,it was my mother who picked me up and encouraged me to try again.When I had difficulty learning to speak for the first time in my life ,it was also my mother who helped me so patiently.
However this was not enough.More importantly,she also gave me moral guidance.So many fairy tales,which she had read to me ,like "Cinderella,""Alice in the Wonderland," and "Sleeping Beauty," made me realize at an early age ,what was right and what was wrong, and how I should and should not behave.
I wish my mother and all the mothers in the whole world happiness and health throughout their entire lives.
