What is a mom? Everybody has their own definition, but here’s mine: It’s just another word for God. Where would you be without your mother? You wouldn’t exist, plain and simple. But there’s much more to being a mom than just giving birth. I know that not every mom qualifies for mother of the year, but mine certainly did. As far as I’m concerned, she still does.

One of my earliest memories from when I was a little kid is my mother taking me to a gravel pit, where I caught a bluegill. I don’t remember for sure, but I think it was a Snoopy pole. Maybe she took me because she knew how much I wanted to go fishing. Maybe she took me to shut me up. Probably it was a little of both. It doesn’t really matter, because the point is she took me, and I thought that was just the greatest thing.
