I wanted to do a nice long post for Mother’s Day. I wanted to put everything I had into it to make it an amazing post for all mother’s and for my mother and step-mother. However the crash of my site today took all my energy and I am drained. I am heading to bed very soon but first I would like to say a few words.
To my mom
Thank you for raising me to be who I am. Thank you for being a wonderful mother that all other kids wished were their own. Thank you for always being there for me even if I just needed someone to talk to in the middle of the night. Thank you for letting me make my own mistakes but being there when I try to fix them. Thank you for being an amazing grandmother to Little Man. Thank you for being you. You are someone I look up to and find myself being like a little more every day and that is not a bad thing.
To my step-mom
Thank you for braving taking on a 13 year old as your daughter even though she was just hitting her rebellion stage. Thank you for accepting me as one of your own. Thank you as well for being there whenever I needed you. Thank you for knowing when I just needed time with my dad and letting it happen without holding it against me or feeling left out. Thank you for all the girl time we have spent together without dad. It has helped to keep our relationship strong. Thank you for being a wonderful granny to Little Man. Thank you for all you do for us and thank you for making sure our family stays close, including my mom.
I could say thank you for so many more things when it comes to them but I don’t think you guys want to read a 1000 page novel. These are two incredible women who always put me and Little Man first and have been there for me through all my ups and downs in life. Without them I would not be who I am today.
To everyone else who is a mother. Happy Mother’s Day! I hope it is a fantastic day and spent in whichever way you choose to spend it.
