Mom So Hard

 I have three women in my life that I need to celebrate today. Each one holds a special place in my heart and has helped mold me into the person that I am today. It's hard to even really express or put into words what these women mean to me, but I'm going to do my best to try.

First, my wife, my better half and my best friend. I don't know who or what I would be without you. I have seen you grow so much over the last nine years of marriage. I remember going back to work a month after we had Noah and the phone calls of panic that he wouldn't sleep during the day. I remember the look of exhaustion when I came home. I remember how hard it was adjusting to life as new parents. I remembered the look in your eyes when you gave birth to Silas and how hard and determined you were to fight for a VBA2C. I will never forget the look of accomplishment that fell across your face. I know being a mom is hard and sometimes when we are in it that it appears there is no end in sight. I promise you that it will all be worth it because we will do it together. Thank you for showing me, true love. 

Second, my mother in law, Terri. I can't say I ever met a fighter as strong as you. A breast cancer survivor two times over is no easy feat, and I know a lot of people would have given up but not you. It's not in your DNA.  I'll never forget during your chemotherapy treatments that you always found time for the boys. You never let cancer get in the way of your life, and you kicked it in the ass. I'm proud of you. Thank you for loving me as your son, for putting up with my crazy antics and allowing me to marry your daughter. You are simply the best.  

Last but not least my mother, Indira Romero. I Remember you staying up with me late at night and helping me with math homework when I was a kid. You used to tell me that it would come in handy later in my life but I can honestly tell you that I have never used an imaginary number in my adult life. LOL. I am thankful for your steadfast love for me. I am thankful for patience and the long nights we had working homework. I am also appreciative of you instilling hard work in me and showing me that nothing in life is easy. 

I love all of you.

Happy Mother’s Day
