Several years ago, a local magazine named Skirt!, interviewed my Mother and I for their Mother’s Day issue. While we have had a complicated relationship — mainly because she detests flying and traveling is my greatest passion in life — I have always known that she is there for me when I need her the most and I am forever grateful for that. The following is an excerpt and photo from that article:
When Andi became suddenly and unexplainably sick fifteen years ago, her mother Margit took on her daughter’s illness as a personal enemy. “It almost killed me to see my child go from a nationally ranked swimmer to not being able to get out of bed,” says Margit. A tireless search led them to what would be Andi’s ultimate relief: acupuncture. Inspired by her own struggle and with her mother’s unwavering support, Andi is now a practicing Acupuncturist herself.
Margit: “Not only does Andi have the power to heal, she has the willingness to listen to people.”
Andi: “The beautiful thing at the end of the day is that I know my mom is always going to be there for me.”
