Today, we honor the cornerstone of our lives, the strength we rely on, the glue of our families, the one who molded our hearts. We honor our Moms.
I have always wanted to make a difference and to be the type of person others could count on to help.
I wasn’t sure where that came from, but it drove me in my endeavors: social work, education, and community organizing. Along the way, I have met many people influential to my career and to my passion for helping others.
A common theme arose: many of the people who guided me were women, and they took me on like a son.
They are still the soft, comforting hand when I need it and the firm push when they expect more from me. Many of my friends are mothers and they care and guide me like only a mother could.
So much of what I have accomplished and everyone I have helped is owed to my Mother’s firm guidance and gentle love. The drive inside me to help others all these years came not only from Mom, but also my sister, and all the other incredibly strong women throughout my life.
Today, we celebrate Mothers with flowers, gifts and brunches, but we must cherish them every day.
