Greatest Mom in the World

Greatest Mom in the World

My name is Crystal Doland, I am 24 years old, and I am writing to tell you about my best friend, my mother. My mother, Barbara Doland, is 47 years old. She has been a dedicated house wife and mother for 25 years. My mother is not the normal typical mother as most would think. When i was born my mom had no idea that I was going to be unhealthy. When I began walking, my mother began noticing how much I was struggling to stand-up and take a few steps, this is where the journey begins. When I was a toddlar my mother took me to all the local doctor offices to try figuring out what was wrong with her first born. My mothers fight did not end there, even though she did not get any answers to her questions, she began to realize that this fight would go on for decades. At that point in time she vowed to me, that no matter what she would never give up. After a few mis-daignosis's she then felt she needed to take our journey to the next level. At this point I was four and my brother was three.

One of the first albums that I grabbed in my search to rebuild was a box set I had purchased years ago by Garth Brooks and it got me thinking, was this the only album set I really needed?

The Great Debate: Dunkin Donuts vs Tim Hortons
