Mom and I have been quite close my whole life, with it's rocky moments just like any other friendship. When I went through some of the worst moments of my life, she was there to help me. Most always though times have been good. Since I was the only child for nine years, because of my age difference between me and the other littles I was able to have a close one-on-one relationship with my Mom. Something I am so thankful to have. Love you Mom!
