For my mom, all I can say is that Mother's Day should be everyday. For my mama, there aren't enough days in the year to for her to hear how dear she is to me. So let me make it clear: Nobody can compete with my mama. You bring more peace to me and always pray on your knees for those in need. You're my best friend and I cherish talking to you everyday! So from the bottom of my heart - I love you mom and my mission will be to honor the strength & wisdom you've given me! ~Mike Jr.
