Some people look up to celebrities to be their heroes. Which is cool, but that is not me. My hero is someone I've known my entire life. Someone who I loved before I even took my first breath. My hero is the person that gave me this precious life. My mother. She is probably the most independent person that I know. She raised me all on her own. It was just me and her against the world. No matter what life threw at her, she always managed to make it through, and with a smile on her face at that. She always worked extremely hard to make sure I had the best life possible. For all of this I am truly grateful. More grateful than I could ever put into words. My mom has been and always will be my hero and I love her more than anything in this entire world.
