My mom is like my big sister and best friend all rolled up into one. The best part? She is also my bowling partner and has been for more than 16 years. She bowls with my team here in Peoria, Illinois. We are the "Bowling Divas." Mom has always been there for us kids and Dad. She is 66 years of age and looks like she is 50. We preserve her well. She has always encouraged me and my siblings to do well and help others. She loves her grandkids, although they sometimes mistake the grandkids as hers. She still works because of the high cost of healthcare, and she likes to keep up with her cars. We think our mom is the best.
