My mom turns 50 in a week. So for her fiftieth birthday she wished for one thing. To climb a mountain in Colorado by herself, and so she did. My mom conquered a dream of hers at 50 years old that most people would never think twice about. She climbed all the way to the top and was the oldest one there doing it. But that never stopped her from chasing her dreams. She will always be 50 years young in my eyes. So proud to have such a determined mother in my life. Seeing her chase her dreams and still being able to accomplish them even though many doubt her, makes me thrive to live a life-like hers.
