To Appreciate the Moms in My Life The number of hats a mom can wear, and the countless ways they can have a lasting effect on the lives of their kids, will never cease to amaze me. Who I am and what I do began with my mom. While I was growing up, she was an art teacher. My mom loved teaching, using her hands, and being creative. Because of her, I also wanted a career where I got to work with my hands and a job where I had the opportunity to educate people. As a chiropractor, I get to do just that. While I could go on about many more reasons I’m thankful for my mom, I would be remiss if I did not also talk about my wife and how she is an incredible mother to

our kids. Like my mom, my wife works as a teacher. She’s incredible with kids

That said, my mother isn’t just the person who raised me and inspired me to become a chiropractor. She is so much more than that. For starters, she has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. She loves helping people, and I like to think I inherited that from her. My mother cares deeply for her family beyond just when it’s convenient. She visits her last living 93-year-old aunt in her nursing home about three times a week. She also makes a point of staying close to her two sisters and a brother who still live within a mile of her. When she communicates with people about things she’s passionate about, you can feel that energy, which is another thing I hope I inherited from her. On top of all of that, my mother is a very strong Christian, and I’m thankful to both her and my father for modeling Christ to me and my sister.

an amazing mom. She makes sure her i’s are dotted and her t’s are crossed when it comes to keeping the kids’ schedules and staying organized. I honestly don’t know how she does it. She also has an unending supply of grace toward our kids, and I try every day to follow her example because she’s way better at it than me. On top of all of that, she’s just a selfless person with a magnetic personality. I think anyone who knows her will attest to that.

Day, I just want to say happy Mother’s Day to all of you out there reading this! I sincerely hope you are appreciated for all you do.
