Genre: Family & Relationships

"I was a difficult child. I tormented my parents with my struggles for independence, disrespect, and disobedience. I was a rebel without a clue. I was not unlike most children and teenagers. I am pretty sure I rarely showed appreciation for what my mom did for me and gave to me. I simple didn't say thank you when I should have. This is my chance. Thank you, Mom." - Best-selling author Gregory E. Lang Lang says that there were many times when hew as hard on his mother and brought pain to her heart. Many times he didn't have the wisdom to take responsibility for his actions or the humility to admit that he was wrong. And yet she loved and cared for him in spite of his misconduct and ingratitude. Now, years later as a parent himself experiencing the tensions of parenting firsthand, he writes Thank You, Mom to express his gratitude to his mother, not just for the many sacrifices she made on his behalf, but also for the patience she extended to him in those turbulent years. In short, he thanks her for never giving up on him. He knows that he can't possibly thank his mother enough for everything she did for him while he was growing up, but in these pages he tries. In doing so, he touches on many universal themes that mothers and their children have always shared. "Thank you for loving me so much when it didn't seem that I loved you at all." "Thank you for helping me with my homework." "Thank you for making sure I learned to understand and respect 'no.'" "Thank you for teaching me how to do my own laundry." "Thank you for listening to me." "Thank you for protecting me from the dangers I couldn't see." Thank You, Mom is a gift book for anyone who wants to tell that special woman that you love her, that you know what she did for you, and that you look to her as the model for what it means to be a parent.

When you call another person "friend," you pay him or her your highest compliment.

Why I Need You evokes the tender moments of child rearing and the emotion-filled memories that last a lifetime, reminding them from time to time why they were loved - and why they were needed.

It is my family that I think about when in moments of reflection I ask myself what I am worth, what I have done with my life, and what I am going to do tomorrow." - Best-selling author Gregory E.
