My mom never had it easy in her life. Her husband, my father left to get some cigarettes when I just had stopped wearing diapers. He was never to be seen again. Certainly not giving a damn about his family anymore.
After dad leaving, mom had to work hard to get enough money to be able to pay the bills and provide for me. She dedicated more or less her whole life to provide for her son. She did a great job doing so. I am forever grateful for the sacrifices she made for me.
