Today, I am honoring my mom. She is amazing. She has survived so much. Through it all, she has been so caring and giving and compassionate. Many times growing up, we did not see eye to eye. I didn't understand some of her decisions. However, maturity and hindsight have shown me that she always had my best interest at heart. Today, her decisions make sense.
Mom has always been there for me, and my friends. She continually encourages me to try new things and to follow my dreams. She set boundaries when I needed them. She comforted me when I thought my world was or would fall apart. Helped me when I needed help and stepped back when she knew I had to do something myself.
Today, she is my mom and my friend. As I parent my own children, I remember her example and hope that I am making her proud. I love you, mom.
