My Hero
- It was almost automatic as soon as I saw the topic that my Mom is the hero of my life.
- Dictionary.com’s definition of the word hero is “a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal: He was a local hero when he saved the drowning child.” - She was the most amazing person I’ve ever had in my life.

- I’ve never looked up to someone and adored being with them more.
- She was a one of a kind person and was the type of person to “give the shirt off her back” if someone else less fortunate needed it.
- Her favorite thing to do was get tan by laying on my boat and spilling her tanning oil all over the place.

- This was one of the funniest moments we had with each other, but then she got to fly down on the snowmobile with ski patrol as i snow boarded down.
- On her birthday this year i got “Mom” tattooed on my arm.
- This was in remembrance of the tragedy i faced last year when my Mom passed away to a flu.
- This was the worst time of my life and I never thought that I’d be the same ever again.
- But i knew i had to keep my head up, stay in school and graduate because that’s what meant most to her was me being successful in life.
- My parents were separated while I was growing up so my bond with her was much stronger that most peoples with their parents.
- She always told me if I put mom or her name on my body she would buy me a new car so i figured it only made sense for me to put it on me now just because she always wanted me to.
- When people who don’t know she passed away ask me what she said when she saw it, I always tell them she loved it, just because i know she’s looking down on me everyday...
