The Greatest Person I Know

 

 

Mothers dedicate their lives to their children.  We give all we have and all we know how to.   Many thanks to Michael for honoring his mother on Women Move the Soul.  As someone who has met this young man personally, I can attest that he is respectful, polite and eager to learn and grow.  They say you can know the character of a mother or a father by the behavior of their child.  They are a reflection of us.  Michael’s Mom, you truly are as awesome as he says you are.   – Tomaca

To My Awesome Mother:

You’ve worked till this day, very hard to maintain a great life for my brother and sister and I. We’re so very fortunate to have you in our lives…

The year my sister was born, you filed for divorce in order to keep drugs and smoke away from us. For the past seventeen years you’ve pretty much raised the three of us on your own with no child support whatsoever. You’re the strongest person I know.

Incredible is when you manage to balance a financial career, pick us up after school, and still help us with our science projects, math homework, and be there for each parents’ night. Seriously, always there, and if there was something we asked for that was too much at the time, you made up for it in so many other ways.

Through high school and college you give me the support and encouragement I need to keep moving forward.  I know it wasn’t always easy for you. I also couldn’t have been the easiest kid to raise, ha-ha, but you did raise us with so much LOVE and patience, everything I’ve accomplished I have you to thank for. You’re the greatest person I know. Thank you for everything you are.

 

I love you too.

-Michael
