On this special day I pay tribute to a living breathing angel. Adrianne Sue Kramer was born Dec 9, 1940. She has had an impact not only in my life but in thousands of people who have been touched by this special women. I remember growing up in a family of 7 children and the most important part of my day was coming home from school to my mother’s arms. In today’s world mothers are sometimes looked down upon as not able to “cut” it in the executive world of business. I couldn’t disagree more with this type of mindset. In my mind a mother has more of an impact upon this world than any other vocation. A quote I read a few years ago says it best, “I believe in love at first sight because.. I’ve been loving my mother since I opened my eyes..” Another stated perfectly, “Your son will hold your hand only for a little while.. but he will hold your heart for a lifetime..” Thanks mom for always being there for me. Your unconditional love is felt when I have been next door or thousands of miles away. I salute you today in this daily echo but know I have saluted and honored you since the day I was born. I love you mom.
