This photo illustrates the beginning of a life of sacrifice, dreams, challenges and triumphs. A young student in this picture, my mom eventually became a psychologist (went to school and worked while raising me). I received a private school education, went to college and eventually became a mom as well. Although I will never truly understand the sacrifices my mom made because she ensured that I would never have to, I certainly learned the meaning of unconditional love through her. In many ways, we are alike … and in other ways, we are very different but together we’ve shared an amazingly rich journey. Our bond is one that could never be broken. Love you mom! Happy Mother’s Day!!
