Until I became a mother, I didn't realize how hard it was. I guess my mom made it look easy. There are a lot of things I could say about my mom, but I'll just pick what stands out the most. My mom is truly one of the sweetest people I know. She is kind and tenderhearted. When I was growing up I don't think a day went by that she didn't tell me she loved me and when I talk to her now it's always the last thing she says before we hang up.
