There's a special bond between a mother and her children. My mom and I have always been close since I was young, particularly because we share so many similar characteristics. However as I've grown older, we've become best friends. I tell her everything and whenever we're together, I know I'm home. I will always be grateful to my mom for sharing her love of football, classic rock and Haagen Gazs ice cream. Thank you, mom, for giving me life and for being someone I know will always be by my side through everything. I love you more than you will ever know.
