My mother is one amazing woman. Her successes in raising me and my brother make me wonder if I could ever be half as good a mother as her. All I can do is ponder her strength as she managed to move our family across the country for my dad's job. I marvel at her energy that she spent volunteering at our schools for years. I admire her ability to lift us up when we needed it, and to let go when she probably would rather have not.
Mom, I love you. Thank you for doing so right for so long.
