I love my mom because she has given up so much for me over the years after my dad left. She has taken up complete custody of us, worked full time to support us, and always been strong and supportive. She also has never been unreasonable and uptight and not ridiculously strict, but enough to know she cares. Last I love how open we are with each other. I think this is extremely important because it builds trust and I can always tell her the truth.
