What can I say about my mom that I haven’t already said?
I had the best mom, hands down, way better than anyone else’s. That’s a very incendiary statement, I know, but it’s true.
My mom didn’t have to be my mom, at a time in her life when she should have been relaxing and traveling the world she and my dad decided to take a troubled teen into their home.
That’s a really brave decision, I’ll be honest, I don’t think I could do what they did.
I’ll be grateful to them for all of my life and beyond. I have told my children of the sacrifices that their grandmother made to take me and raise me.
I’ll tell my granddaughter about her great grandmother and the sacrifices she made in order to give me a much better life.
Because of my mother I had a good foundation that I could build on in order to raise my children.
I may not have been the best mom in the world (I already had that so my kids got me) but I was way better than I would have been without my amazing mom’s influence.
I always feel extremely blessed that God have me the children that He did. They are all amazing, smart, funny, sarcastic, snarky, kind, caring and beautiful humans. I seriously cannot imagine life without them. I’m so proud of the adults that they have become.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there, but especially the ones that raise the children that aren’t born to them.
