Growing up I always wanted to be a ROCKSTAR. I remember at a young age singing at the top of my lungs in the mirror and to every song at my dance recitals. I have to say as of late I am awesome at singing in the shower and even better with the windows down and stereo full blast while on the freeway. Other people may have a different opinion.
And while I used to think that being a ROCKSTAR came required funky clothes, lots of accessories, a go against the grain and do the unthinkable attitude I recently learned a different definition of a true ROCKSTAR.
rock– One that is similar to or suggestive of a mass of stone in stability, firmness, or dependability
star– To do an outstanding job; perform excellently
My mom is a rock star. Nothing in her life has ever been easy and you will never hear her complain about it. She may complain about other things such as who the Bachelor should have picked or who deserved to go home on Dancing with the Stars but she takes set backs in life in stride and overcomes the seemingly impossible.
She has already battled cancer twice in the past and three months ago was diagnosed with esophageal cancer. Early this year she started feeding herself through a feeding tube because she was unable to swallow and today she will have a tracheotomy to help prevent backflow of salivia into her lungs so she can continue to live the life she loves even if it requires spending extended periods of time in the hospital to get the job done.
Other people may have thrown in the towel and given up but my hasn’t lost her fighting spirit. She is strong, dependable, and excels through any adversity. She has given me a great life and has surrounded herself and me with some amazing people that have kept us going through this rough patch.
When I grow up I still want to be a ROCKSTAR just like my mom!
