I don’t know if anyone else in the world understands me quite as well my mom. If I hadn’t been her son, I feel like God would have made me her twin. She’s the super fun, crazy art lady who loves God, sunsets, cats, art, music, and culture…and guess what; me too!
She’s always been my biggest fan, no matter if I am playing in a punk rock band, painting a weird alien creature emerging from the bushes or teaching Torah on Shabbat, she’s supported me the entire way.
Though I went a different faith route than the rest of the family, she still supports my beliefs and my lifestyle. She first inspired me to look for truth when I was confused and always taught me to stay true to myself. I hope I still make her proud in everything that I do.
I love you, mom.
