A little bit about me
I am currently reading "A Champion's Mind" by Pete Sampras. It is an autobiography about the great tennis player Pete Sampras, who was a favourite of mine.
The next book I plan to read is, "Eleanor and Park" by Rainbow Rowell. I am excited to read this book - I heard they are making it into a movie.
She is an incredible woman. She raised my sister and myself by herself, as a single parent. My father passed away when I was only 4 years old (my sister was 8 months) and my mother had the will and strength to raise us alone.
We didn't grow up with all of the advantages that our friends with two parents had, but we did have a very privileged life. I grew up in a large home, always had nice clothes, was involved in many extra curricular activities (like piano lessons, swimming, skating, and anything else I was interested in) and never went to bed hungry.
I try to imagine my life now, with my children, living alone and raising them and I realize how amazing my mother was. I respect her very much.
