My Mom, My Hero

All her compassion, love and encouragement she has given me.  I hope one day to compare to the qualities she had to offer and to know that I can be proud of my accomplishments in life.  With the realization of her impact on her family, rest assured she lives through us.

This patch is from a cashmere sweater
which was a Christmas present to her.
