My mother is the most special mother/woman out there. She is the strongest woman I know. After she had me on October 21st, 1986, she had a stroke one month later. You wouldn't be able to tell now. She has been through so much in her life. She had to learn how to walk, hold silverware, get back out into the workforce, etc, all because of that stroke. And you know what? She got back out there, bigger and better than she was before. She got a job with the state, became president of a couple organizations, went back to school, and raised me as a single mother. There is no one stronger than my mommy :) She is not only my mother, she is also my best friend, and the best grandma to my kids. So I grew up with the coolest, strongest mom, and they have the coolest, strongest grandma.
