At the time of my birth it was found that I had or should I say have a condition known as Osteogenesis Imperfecta and my mother was told I would not live beyond the age of three years. Well, looking back on my life now, at the age of forty-nine, I have to say that I got much of my strength from my mother. She was always there for me growing up and continues to be here for me, even today. Whenever I awoke from an operation she was there at my bedside with a gentle touch and a warm smile that would light up the entire hospital. It was through her that I gained the courage to fight for my life and if there was one person I would like to be most like it would be her. Her strength, her spirit, her love and her understanding are all traits that I feel all humanity could benefit from and the world is a better place having her in it. I love you Mom!
