Best Mom/Trainer/Best Friend

I want to start by saying that my mom is the greatest. We do not have the dynamic that normal mother-daughter relationship. I have been riding horses since I was little because my mom owns a horse farm. She has been my trainer from the start. This has been hard for her because I was a hard kid to deal with and she had to work with me 24/7 because she was my mom at home and my trainer at the barn. But that has made us so much closer today. She has never given up on me and made my dreams come true. I have been to national finals multiple times with ribbons. I was first overall 2 years in a row for national finals. Our bond is 10x better than any of my friends and their mom. I talk to my mom about everything. Now as I got older, to make our dynamic more confusing, she is my employer. I work at her riding camp. I am head counselor and we work together a lot. She is amazing at balancing when to act like my mom, my trainer, or my employer. My mom is my best friend.
Not only is she my Mom but she has 4 other kids. She has a step son, Chris, that she treats as her own. He has a kid, Brooklyn, who my my drives 5 hours to visit all the time. She has a kid, Jesse, who is the youngest manager at GM. He graduated from SUNY Buffalo and had a job right out of college. She has another son, Corey, who is currently studying computer science at SUNY Brockport. And finally a son, Phil, who is only 14 and has taken 2 college courses.
And even more than her old children, but "adopted" children. She has touched so many kids' lives at the barn. Many of the kids she has trained come back to tell her how much she effected their life. If a kid has a bad home life, she will kind of take them under her wing and help them with what ever they want. They all see her as a mother figure.
She is the most amazing mom and deserves every award.
