I'm so thankful to have my mom here with me on this journey through life. She has been my constant friend, my support system, my confidant and even my fan. My father was always my biggest fan and I knew that and desperately missed him after he lost his battle with Esophageal Cancer 3 years ago. Shortly after his death, I climbed this really rough hill on my bicycle and I got to the top and pulled out my phone to call him. When I saw his name still in my cell phone and remembered that I would never be able to call him again, I broke down. My mom has stepped into that role for me. I think she honestly always wanted that role, but the father/daughter bond is a tight one that is always hard on mothers. I talk with my mom over triumphs and difficulties and we play games and take walks. I love her desperately and will hold onto her as long as I can and cherish our time together. She is an incredible woman with a huge, loving, giving heart.
