Raising me wasn't easy. I put my mother, Sharon Brown Colvin, through absolute hell. If the saying 'momma tried' applied to anyone, it was definitely me. Today, I took her shopping as an early birthday present. At the end of the day we stood in front of my house. She broke down in my arms and told me how proud she was of me. She cried really hard. Before I was born, she had her tubes tied. Years later, she became pregnant with me. I was a bit of a 'miracle baby,' so she always told me that I was here for a God given reason. All my life she assured me that. We struggled so hard during my childhood, that one time a local news channel in Louisville did a story on us. My mom tirelessly worked two jobs just to feed us. Now I spoil her rotten, for obvious reasons. Holding my mother in front of my house today while she sobbed and continuously told me how proud she was of me… Well, it was a moment I'll never forget. Mom, you are the one who taught me how to work hard, pray harder, and to give freely to those who could never reimburse me. You are the real MVP. I love you momso. – Tony
