I watch her fill up her children's mind with imagination and wonder. I watch Danaka inspire her kids the way I was inspired. I wish to become a mother like her, a mother that cares without a resistance, and loves unconditionally. My sister loves the world around her, she has always wanted to make the world a better place. She has inspired me to help those in need, and love those who are broken.
In addition, Annie continued to convince Kate on why she is the right person to help Helen when she mentioned that Dr. Howe taught her all she needed to know. Kate began to warm up to Annie and wondered how a young girl like her would have enough confidence to teach Helen. Annie persuaded Kate and as a result, she gave her the job to take care of Helen. Kate seems to like that Annie has a sense of humor, and this can allow for both women to relate to each other. Kate feels good about Annie and welcomed her into her home when she said: “...We’ll do all we can to help, and to make you feel at home.
Maternity In Love Medicine In the novel “Love Medicine” by Louise Erdrich the mothers seem to defy history and control their families and their lives, the mothers seem to have most influence on the people around them. The mothers in “Love Medicine” are strong tough women, who suffer through seemingly unbearable pain throughout their lives which seems to influence them for the rest of their lives. One of the strongest characters in the novel “Love Medicine” is Marie Lazarre/Kashpaw who comes from a family of thieves, but heads her family with a no nonsense attitude that she has carried with her since early life.

When Marie was only 14, she followed through on her dream and tried become a nun despite her being part indian.
There 's a subtle wonderfulness to this story. It 's such a relatable story that involves day to day recounts of activities, Kimberly and her mother 's struggles and strives, financially and culturally. Especially from Aunt Paula. Once she said: “You can release your heart, older sister” (148). And another conversation is that “I am too smart to cheat….It is under me” (157).Even though Kim’s mother suffered loneliness ..she is such a bold character to suffer and sacrifice though she got hardships and rejection from Aunt Paula.
It shows she is very protective and loving towards Nelson and she is always worried something bad would happen to nelson. Patria not only cares about her own kids, she is very motherly to others as well, in this quote she was at the discovery day dance, which she was invited to, by Trujillo. Minerva said, “Always the mother that one. She got a handkerchief in that purse should someone sneeze, a mint to keep a child happy, a rosary in case anyone wants to pray” (Alvarez 97). The quote is very important because it shows her motherly characteristics, and how she reaches out to others.
These are her ways of showing her kids that she loves them. She appreciates her kids and adore them and I’m sure they feel the same way about their mother. Most of the other mothers don’t even pay attention to their kids/child, but they’re quick to give them to the maids. Hilly is always putting her kids first no matter what. Even though she is so cruel to everyone else, she will never disrespect her kids.
Remember them!” (111). Even while in physical pain herself and needing tending, Adele focuses on children, believing that to be a perfect mother one must be willing to sacrifice anything for her children. Adele tries to get Edna to see her point of view and adopt it. Again, Adele’s unsolicited advice shows how passionately she feels about the subject, which is not her own idea at all but simply society’s rule imposed on
Without determination, Annie would not have been able to achieve this miracle. Accomplishing teaching with success is troublesome without the determination to do so. In Act I of the play, Kate Keller, Helen’s mother, showed determination towards helping Helen. Helen struggled a great deal since the beginning of her life, and all Kate wanted was to help her daughter lead an average life like any other child; to do this, Kate needed determination. Kate’s motherly and concerned attributes gave her the ability and strength to support her daughter.
Adele is “the embodiment of every womanly grace and charm” who “idolizes their children, their husbands” (9). Together Edna and Madame Ratignolle discuss womanly duties of sewing and childbirth. Through their friendship, Edna confides her dual life that conforms and questions in Madame Ratignolle. Madame Ratignolle conformist lifestyle motivates Edna to become her own person away from the Victorian feminine ideal. Adele’s beliefs that a woman should devote her life to service leads her to advice Edna to “think of the children [and] remember them” (104).
My mom, my sweet, gentle mom. My mom is like my sister, we love to talk about juicy stuff and love to share with each other what we did during the day. I don 't like to imagine myself without her because she is basically my life. She is caring and kind and always have a smile on her face when she sees me. When I say her name I get a picture of her in my mind.
The relationship between a mother and a daughter holds a special bond of love and care. While mothers truly care for their daughters, this act of devotion can lead to conflicts. The strength of their bond is the determining factor in overcoming and being able to tolerate periods of disagreement. The excerpts in Amy Chua’s Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mom and Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club both display the reality of mother-daughter relationships. The attachment and deep affection that the mothers give to their daughters provoke arguments between the two.
Aibileen Clark from The help is my most favorite character because I realize that Aibileen is one of the strongest women that I ever known. It is not easy for everyone to control their own emotion when they were disdained and Aibileen proved it for me. I can see that to be maid is very hard and torture but she can distinguish that Mae Mobley(A baby) is innocent, so she take care Mae Mobley very well while Mae Mobley’s mother always ignore Mae Mobley and hit her. Aibileen is brave too. She dare to share her bad experience with Skeeter for Skeeter’s book even she knew that it can do harm for her if other white people know about this but she still try to claim for coloured people fairness.
In “Everyday Use” Alice Walker describes the narrator of the story, Mama with strong alliterations, and vivid imagery. Mama is a loving mother plagued by two polar-opposite daughters, Maggie who is a naive yet good-hearted person who wants to maintain the last connection she has with her heritage and Dee who is a selfish and egotistical character with a superficial understanding of her inheritance. Mama’s inner monologue gives us a glimpse of how far she would go to show this unconditional love, and the reasoning behind her rising tension and separation towards Dee. Mama describes herself as a “large, big boned women,” which she is very proud of her manly nature and ability to milk cows and butcher hogs. She is not the average “housewife” and
Cohen also effectively uses clear progression of thought to illustrate her burgeoning empathy toward her mother. She starts out with passages such as “My mother has become a character from a story I used to know; a face from an old photograph, the colors faded, her features blurry” (Cohen, 2015, p. 13), and, after her internal revelations, uses a kinder, more endearing vocabulary to describe her enigmatic mother: “My brilliant, beautiful, complicated mother” (Cohen, 2015, p. 45), “This loving and beloved woman was my mother, as were all her other shape-shifting incarnations” (Cohen, 2015, p. 419). Cohen’s method of understanding her mother may have been unorthodox, but her end result is not an uncommon experience; in the documentary The Story of Mother and Daughters, one interviewed woman says, “Mothers need to meet their daughters again after they reach maturity” (Weimberg, 2010).
