I love this video! It reminds me of the many, many times I've fallen both physically and emotionally in my life. Every time I've fallen, my mom has been there physically or on the phone picking me up, dusting me off and telling me to get back on the bandwagon and try again. Except for 1 time when I was in grad school and I told her I was quitting, keep in mind I'd told her that every day for at least the first month. One day she said, "Ok Quit, but you will regret it for the rest of your life," but then again she was on the phone pushing me to be my best. And so I kept going and 11 years into my career I'm glad I didn't quit, but that she really did pick me up through that difficult ride and pushed me to be the best that I could be.
Thank you mom for picking me up, dusting me off, encouraging me to keep going and most of all for being happy with me in my triumphs! It's because of you mom that I'm the strong woman that I am today. I love you mom!
Today is my birthday. I am 36
