This week’s issue made me really happy, whenever we have pieces from the children in school I always get a kick out of reading what they have to say. Many of the children said they loved their mom because she cooks good food or pays bills so they can watch TV.

Sometimes the actions we do every day and don’t give a second thought to can mean the world to someone else. I always try to keep this in mind and put my best foot forward, because you never know when what you just said to someone will be the last words you ever say to them.

On a lighter note, I wanted to take a page from the children this week and write about why my mom means the world to me.

My mother is a woman who has put up with more than any person should ever have to and stayed strong through more than I can ever imagine. A cancer survivor who never sat by and let life pass her by. She researched and read up on diet and nutrition to boost the immune system and kept herself going through a treatment I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.

Once she was on the other side and receiving clear test results from the doctor she was drug back into the chemotherapy room, to sit alongside by brother as he fought his own battle with cancer.

Every day I hope to be half as strong as my mom and I want to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day!
