  I love my mom because I love Mom because she’s amazingly
  supportive of my life’s goals no matter how unattainable they
  seem. Honesty and compassion exudes from her voice, while
  a warm embrace comforts me. She is my rock. I confide in
  with my deepest fears, and is the first to hear the good news.
  This beautiful woman filled with grace, empathy, and love em-
  powers others to strive for a better tomorrow while remind-
  ing us of the wonderful things we have today. Passing along
  her teachings to my children one day will be an honor. I love
  and cherish my Mom always.

    I love my mom because, for some unfathomable reason, she knows just what I need
    from her.When my life feels off-balanced and incredibly chaotic, she reminds me, some-
    times not so subtlety, where I came from and who I am. No one can lead me to the brink
    and back quite like my mom. I put up a fight, and she still fights harder.When I am in total
    disarray, she magically finds the pieces to set me back together.
