Mom, oh boy where do you start?? Every person has a mom of course, some will guide you in your younger days of childhood, mine was such a "mom". So many times we just take mom for mom not realizing how she was shaping our young lives. She was always there to help with your cut finger or bump on the knee with a gentle kiss and hug. At the Sunday dinner table when we had fried chicken , she would say "keep the back for me," of course it was always on the chicken plate when it arrived at mom's side of the table. As I got older and smarter in my young live, I knew more than anyone, but mom was still there to help you each day When I reached adult hood and moved into my own place, who was there to help, right mom. Today mom is no longer with us on earth, but I still think of her offen, and wish I could hold her and say I LOVE YOU MOM.
