My mom was not an easy woman to get along with. She had a lot of mental issues which caused us to have a strained relationship. However, the one thing that she really taught me that I can truly count on, is how to take care of myself and to never be afraid of a challenge.

Our jobs as moms is to give our children gifts that will help them grow and flourish in their adult life. Things like love, nurturing, time spent together — those are the things that matter the most.
