It's my mom picking me up after I'd fallen down. Giving me a big. And reading me goodnight moon. From that moments to this one. Every single memory I have of my mom. Is that it's regardless of what was happening in her life. She was always always there for me. At free. Soccer game. Every softball game every piano recital every dance recital. Sunday's spent together at church in the local library. Countless Saturday's been finding shapes in the clouds. Making up stories about what we would do have we ever met a triceratops. In my opinion that friendly is looking dinosaurs. Although my mom would always remind me they were still dinosaurs. As a kid I was pretty obsessed with. Dinosaurs. Attendance that day that my parents are needed dinosaur national park. I did think life to get any better. Whenever my mom was away for work which they pleaded happen very often. She left notes for me to open every day. She was gone. All stacked neatly together NN special drawer or. With the deet on the front of each one so I would know which note to open on which day. When she went to France to learn about their child care system. I remember one was all about the Eiffel Tower. And another was about the idea is she hoped to bring home to help the kids of Arkansas. I treasurer asks. Each and every one of those notes. They were another reminder that I was always in her thoughts. And in her heart. Growing up conversations around the dinner table always started with what I've learned in school that day and I remember one week. Talking incessantly. About a book that captured my imagination. A wrinkle in time. Only half year. My parents had listened to me. Would they didn't talk about what they were working on education and health care. What was consuming their days in keeping them up at night. I loved to that my parents expected me to have opinions. And to be able to back them up with backs. I never. Once doubted. That my parents cared about my thoughts and my ideas. And I always. Always knew how deeply they loved me. That feeling of being valued and loved us. That's what my mom wants for every. Child. It is. That's wrong laying out her life. My parents raised me to know how lucky I was. They never had to worry about food on the table that they never had to worry about a good school to go to. They never had to worry about as safe neighborhoods. To play in. And it took me to care about what happens in our world. And to do what ever I could to change what frustrated me. What felt wrong. They taught me that it's the responsibility that comes. With being smiled on by fate. And it's. I. I know my kids our. A little young. Pelton but I Marty trying to instill those same values. In them. There's something out. That my mother taught me. Public service. Is about service. And. Her daughter and. I've had a special window. Into how she serves. A senior holding the hands of mothers. Worried about how they'll feed their kids. Worried about how look at them the health care they need. I've seen my mother promising. To do everything. She could to help. A senior right after those conversations getting straight to work. Figuring out what she could do who she could call how fast. She could get results. She always feels like there isn't a moment to lose. Because she knows. That for that mother. Turned acts Stanley. There isn't. And it's. I am. I've also a senior at the low points like the summer of 1994. Several people this week have talked about her fight for universal health care. I am I sought up close. It was bruising. It was exhausting. She thought her heart out and as all of you know she lost. For me then fourteen years old it was this it was pretty tough to watch. But my mom. She was amazing. She took a little time to replenish her spirits. Stanley movie nights definitely helped us dad is all of you now known likes police academy. Oh my mom and I loved us pride and prejudice. And rooms. And then. She just got right back to work. But as she believed she could still make a difference for kids. People are asking. This time. How does she do it. She keep going and mid this sound in the theory of politics. Here's how. It's that she never. Ever forgets who she's fighting for. She's word. To make it easier for Foster kids to be adopted.
