Never mind creating me from scratch, which is really too incredible for further comment. I now have a keener appreciation and respect for the difficulty and importance of the parenting role, and I'm grateful for her guidance and patience through those dependent years. But when I think of my mom now, I think of our current friendship and her uncompromising love for me and my family; a constant source of strength and stability.
We're all lucky that our moms brought us into the world, but I'm feeling extra lucky that I also got a great friend in the bargain.
