This tribute to my one and only mother today is truly from my heart to yours. Today is without a doubt one of the most emotional days of the year. I was trying to think of what to say that would be special other than, you are the perfect mother, you are the best mother, I would be nothing without you, and so on.... But each one of these kept resonating in my mind, along with all of the memories up to this point. At 20yrs of age you gave your life to being a mother, you allowed us to alter your body, mind, and spirit forever. All the times when we would just ramble about everything and nothing all at the same time, it was as if that were the best and most important thing that you had heard all day. Everything wasn't peaches and cream, but no matter the situation you held our family and taught us how to weather a storm. My day truly is incomplete if I don't talk to you or see you. Today I thank you for being my mother, my role model, my heart. You really are the best thing since sliced bread!!!
