I can’t explain what a driving, motivating, and inspiring force my mother is in my life. She has been there with me though everything, and I know that comes off as cliche, but its 100% true.
Through my whole life she challenged me to try new things. When I was young that was as simple as encouraging me to play soccer, learn the trombone, and do better in math class.
As an adult it was encouraging me to start my own website, supporting me when I wanted to expand to podcasting, and reinforcing my work ethic when I wanted to join PFF. She was even a source of compassion and comfort when I was unable to stay with them.
Someday I’ll write everything I want to about my mother and the tremendous difference she has, and continues to make in my life.
For now, I’ll just say thank you to her, and thank you to all the mothers out there who support their children in all their endeavors. Not a single one of us could do it without the incredible support we receive from you on a daily basis.
