Jeff Rodgers

Mom: Sherri Rodgers

My mother is the best person in the world. I love her dearly for all the things shes ever done in my life, which even for the rest of my whole life couldnt pay off of what she's done for me. She drives me all over MI just to play a sport. That means alot to me, which is hockey. Even the hours we spend in the car arguing and changing the radio, to the channel we want can't stop me for knowing she's the best mom in the world and no one can replace her. Even the chanting of the fans and respect givin by many, my mom still, and will always be my number one fan! For all the times she's hug me when I'm lonely and change my diaper when I was little, and care and trust me so, I'd could never repay her for what she's done for me. Not even $100,000,000,000 (one-hundred billion dollars) could be enough to even equal what she's done for me. She feeds me, cares for me, gets me ready for school, drives me all over to games, and that's not even close what she's done for me. Most of all, what we do for mother, is love. XOXOXO!

Another thing my mother does for me is when there is a thunderstorm, my mother comforts me when I am scared. She hugs me and tells me "It's going to be all right.'' Sometimes she even lets me sleep in her bed with her. That helps a lot. My mother does a lot of other nice things for me. She gives me hugs and kisses. She comforts me when I am sad.
