Happy Mothers Day

First off, I want to wish all of you mothers out there a very very happy Mother's Day. It's one of the hardest yet most rewarding jobs there is.
It's on this day I really miss my mom. I lost her when I was just 25. She was an amazing mom and a great friend.

I have been lucky to have two other Moms in my life though. The first is Patty. DSC00134.JPG She married my dad a few years after my mom passed away. The first time I met her I just knew I was going to hate her. No one was going to replace my mom, especially someone who was only 9 yrs older than me. It didn't work though. As soon as I met her, there was a bond there and it's lasted all this many years. She and my dad are no longer married but it doesn't matter. Patty and I are bonded for life. She's a friend and a confidant. She's someone I can always turn to for some common sense advice. I am so thankful for having her in my life.

The second is my mother in law. I don't even like to refer to her as "in-law" because she is so much more to me. She has been such a source of comfort and love for me, I can't even describe. She comes up to visit us on a regular basis and we always have fun. I may pick on her but I love her dearly.
To these two women ~ Thank you for being the mothers that I needed. I cherish you both

Yes my friend, I too am not fond of mother's day, but I am finally coming around to what people have been saying for years that I am a mom and I need to let my family acknowledge that. So with that said, you are a stellar mom raising all of your own and half a world of others who consider you mom. Have a great day and know you are loved greatly.
