No matter how hard this year so far has been for me my mom has been nothing but supportive and always here for me to lend a shoulder for me to cry on or just to listen. I know I can call her at all hours of the night and during the day just to talk when we are 4,000 miles apart and she never will complain. It is times like this deployment I realize even more so how important she is in my life each and every day. Through the years of growing up she has turned out to be not just my mom but my best friend. I can only hope to one day be the mom she has been to my brother and I.
Happy Mama's Day to all the other moms! :)
