Happy Mother's Day

The admiration that I have for my mother goes beyond cliché. I view her as a source of power, love, forgiveness, understanding and meekness.

At times, I attempt to view her objectively... setting the fact aside that I'm lucky to be her son, I view her through the lens of a man that has succeeded, failed, been weak, strong... conquered and been defeated.

To be a man knowing that my survival is due to the many attributes held by my mother and the powerful women that have been my foundation throughout my life, is truly humbling.

To see my mother as a man viewing a woman, I'm beyond blessed that this woman is MY mom!

Mom, thanks for being the great woman you are that just so happened to birth me 39 years ago!

Happy Mothers Day!
