January 24th.. It’s a Big Deal!

Today is January 24th. For some of you this day is really of no importance. You woke up, ate breakfast, went to class, did some homework, and maybe went to practice for a sport. However, January 24th has a little more significance for me and my family because it is my mom’s birthday. Many people say they have the best mom is in the world but I am convinced that I in fact do have the best mom in the world. She has made such an impact in my life and I can say that I would not be the person I am today without her influence in my life. 

So mom, thank you for everything you have done for me. Thank you for listening to me, laughing with me, making me smile, putting up with my short attention span, and allowing me to change the radio station every 20 seconds in the car. I love you a lot and can’t wait to celebrate your birthday with you next week! POGS!
