My mother is my hero today, and for always. Our neighbors recently lost their son and have really just needed something to smile about, so my mom made dinner for them by the pool tonite. And my mom wanted to make sure that both of them were happy, so she made creole and jambalaya – and enough for 10 people. And then she added homemade desserts. She doesn’t know how to do anything small. But the best part was that we were all together and our neighbors were smiling and happy for the first time in weeks. This might seem like nothing, but it makes my heart happy to see my mom enjoying making other people happy, expecting nothing in return except friendship. She has been a role model and hero to our family and friends all my life. Thank you, Mom.
