Mother's Day is a great time to stop and think about the incredible sacrifice that our mothers have made for us. From day one, literally, sacrifices were made from our moms to allow each of us to be where we are today. Instead of using my own words to describe the unconditional love and sacrifice, I will use the recent words of NBA MVP, Kevin Durant, in the video below. The emotional description of the commitment his mother made to him, and his career, says it all. She was there to support him, regardless of the awards, and he is wise enough to realize that he wouldn't be up on that stage without her influence. Well said Kevin, and thank you moms for being the quiet source of strength for every young man who is desperately trying to change his world with the gifts he has been given.
Please watch this video, and if you are fortunate enough to still have your mom, give her a hug today.
