Dear Mom, for the past 18 years of my life, you have been my go-to, my rock, the person I could go to for advice. We have of course gone through our rough patches, or highs and lows, but we always seem to find peace with each other. No bump has ever been, or will ever be too big for us to tackle together. There isn’t enough gratitude in the entire Earth to give thanks for everything you have done for me! You as a parent have sacrificed so much to be a parent to not only me but the rest of your children. You have done everything in your power to raise us in the best way possible; from helping us with our homework, to chauffeuring us around to our games and practices. You have gone above and beyond to raise me and my siblings, and for that I thank you. For everything you have done for us you deserve an immense amount of credit: being not only the mother, but the father figure in our lives. When our father passed, you stepped up to try to the best of your ability to fill that role.

You were the one who provided our school supplies, made Christmas wonderful every year, supported our sports, school, and even supplied us with countless life lessons. You are my biggest inspiration for many reasons. You have worked countless hours to help provide for all of us. I’m sure there were, and are days where you don’t want to get out of bed and go to work, or go do this and that, but you do. You have always tried to do what you saw best for your children.

In life we have role models that tend to do subtle things that they don’t see as making huge impacts yet somehow always leave the biggest. Everyone has that quote they heard from a coach, a parent, grandparent, etc. that has stuck with them through the years. Those sayings, quotes, life lessons that those people teach us are the things that help us mold into the person we are. I firmly believe that without seeing my own mom work as hard as she does day in and day out that I wouldn’t be who I am today; with that being said that is the reason my mom is my local hero. The drive to provide for her children and her constant hard work even when she doesn’t feel like doing it is what will always stick with me to do my best in every aspect. I see a hero as a person who will do whatever they can to help others. Some do what they can for the Earth, some their community, others help any person they come into contact for! My mom does whatever she can for me and my siblings, and for that, she is my local hero.
