Before The Magic Began

For My Mom<3
My mom has been a Tragically Hip fan as long as I can remember. My mom and I shared my first Hip concert together last May. My mother Lori has been such a remarkable and strong woman whom I am so thankful to have in my life. Unfortunately, she was unable to obtain tickets to her favorite band.

My mom, being a big Hip fan, always calls me in excitement whenever she spots one of the band members around Kingston. My mom is so deserving of these tickets. I am writing because I would like her to have a chance to see her favorite artists in concert for the last time. I will never forget the first time she introduced me to them, I will never get their music out of my mind: "and then the hornet stung me" - Ahead by a Century.

Thanks mom for being a great lady and I hope you get to see the boys in concert. I love to see her smile when she listens to The Hip, they are the number one on her playlist and she can not get enough of them. I can not think of a better, more selfless or deserving person than my own mother.

Thank you kindly for your consideration. She does not know I have entered this contest. I figured I would give it a shot:)
