Thanks, Mom

My mother (right) and her sister, in Taiwan.

I’ve written about my mother many times. Today I’m going to borrow other people’s words.

From Heather Armstrong’s recent post:

I am successful because my mother showed me how it is done. She invested herself in me, and I owe her everything. I hope that she knows that I knew what she was doing. I knew that she cared and wanted me to learn how to work, how to be generous, how to be loyal. She is the reason I know how and where inside myself to dig deep. I was paying attention. I recognize the tireless campaigner she was on my behalf.

From Kevin Durant’s MVP speech (which you really should watch, with tissues handy):

“And last, my mom. I don’t think you know what you did. … You’re the real MVP.”

My Husband’s Book


Welcome to New House 5. It’s not just the top floor of a brand new dorm. For 56 freshmen, it’s home. A place where friends are made and doors are always open. A place where hearts are broken and tears are shed.

Watch as these students try to overcome their flaws and fears to create a bond so special that nothing can pull them apart. Not even themselves.
