I have been lucky enough to have TWO of the most wonderful mothers in the entire world. One gave me life, the other completed my life.
My mom, June, is the one who brought me into this world. Without her, there is no way I would be here…at all. She did her best to raise me right, and I must say I think she did a hell of a job. 🙂 She is a wonderful grandmother to three beautiful children (two of which are mine. See, I have the majority of her grandkids so therefore I am her favorite.) On a recent (meaning in the past year) trip down to San Antonio to see us, we all went to the Riverwalk. She posed in front of the Alamo with all three grandkids (the older two are mine).
Not only does she love and support her grandkids, but also all three of her daughters, and her stepchildren as well. Yes, she joined the ranks of being a stepmother, along with myself, when she married her husband. She freaking rocks! It’s not an easy job loving another woman’s kids as you do your own, but she has done that.
Now for Lisa, the woman who gave me my husband.
Without her, I wouldn’t be where I am today. She gave me another precious gift, her second son (and the smartest and handsomest and awesomest and bestest one out of the two, but I don’t think I’m biased at all…lol). As far as mother-in-laws go, I got really lucky. I love this woman to death. She loves me back. I actually enjoy visiting with my in-laws (all of them). They are an amazing bunch. Anyway, she is the reason that my husband is as amazing as he is. I just want to thank you for giving me such a wonderful man to love and spend the rest of my life with.
Both of my mothers are amazing women. They are strong, beautiful, and independent. I have learned so much from both of them. I can’t even imagine my life without them.
Thanks, to both of you, for being just who you are! I love you!!
