There is nothing greater than the love of my mother. My mom is the silent hero, the boo-boo doctor, the therapist, the fighter and champion. I recall the first day I was in a hotel room in Redwood City, CA. I just drove to the liquor store to buy a six-pack of beer. My phone rings and I hear my mom’s voice. The first words out of her mouth was…”I hope you are doing ok over there and not drinking by yourself.” I looked at the cold Sierra Nevada I just opened and put it down by the bedside table and mind you I did not drink a drop. It’s crazy the things mother’s know even if you are on the other side of the coast.
My mom spent her life taking care of 5 children and working to support a household. She made sure we were brought up with faith. She baked cakes, made costumes, sold fundraiser candy and instilled a worth ethic that has brought me professionally success.
It took us all these years to finally honor her with a celebration to mark 60 years of bringing love into this world. I love you mom and thank you for making me the man I am proud to be.
