My mom is a pillar of strength, with a giving heart. She is honest and selfless and can make you laugh with her crazy ways. Growing up, we had our ups and downs, but over time she has become a best friend. She has always been there for me and my son, and she taught me how to be a strong and courageous single mother. She is 70, and still as beautiful today as you see in this picture. It is because of her that I am the woman and mother I am today.
