While parked and eating lunch I came across something I wrote a while ago. Its a reminder of how much I appreciate my mom. When we're young we choose to go down paths that later we deem to be huge mistakes. These mistakes can often be life altering. My life story good or bad is filled with many ups and downs many of which included my mom. Today, as we inch closer to Mother's Day I can only think of the value of my mom. The love I have for my mom. I feel so blessed to have come to the other side with my mom next to me. Knowing the physical and emotional struggle she went through to have me and the ending result of me being diagnosed with Larsens Syndrome speaks to her strenghth at that time. My mom was a young lady who was forced to deal with adversity. Adversity that continued on many fronts for decades. But on that March afternoon in 1974, she was just a girl trying to figure it out. Thanks mom!!
