"Mom...the flowers of kindness you've given bloom again with every memory." My mom lived in an apartment and was not able to have planters of flowers, so she came to my house every spring and helped me fill my planters.

I would like to share picture of my Mom. Her name is Czesia. She is absolutely fabulous and I love her with all my heart. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999, went through radiation, chemo and surgery. I went with her through all of it supporting and caring when she needed. I remember shaving her head when her hair started to fall out. She made it through, and now we are able to celebrate Mother's Day for the last 15 years!!! With hope and prayers we will have many more years of Mother's Day Celebration. She is currently living in Poland, her home country, she moved back there after retiring from her CNA job. We see each other via Skype or when she is here visiting.

Mothers are like buttons and she did hold everything together! My mom made me laugh, wiped my tears, Hugged me tight, watched me succeed, cheered me on, kept me strong. Moms are a promise from God that you will have a friend forever!
Debbie gave me the fabulous gift of grandchildren. She provides them with unmeasurable love, kind words, and encouragement every day. I am truly blessed - and they are too.
