I’m so blessed to have the mother God gave me.
I certainly have been thankful for her for a long time, but going through this ordeal has reminded me what a remarkable and loving woman she is. There’s nothing like knowing your mom will support you before, during and after a tough decision.
Thank you for the big things… and the little things, mom.
Will and I love you very much!
Giving thanks for her today, as well as my grandmothers – who helped shape both of my parents into the people they are.
Happy Mother’s Day!
This is my mother’s mother Grandma Vivi. (I’m not sure what we’re doing here, but it seems pretty silly!) She died of breast cancer when I was in 2nd grade. She was a wonderful grandmother and a great mom to my mom! I remember her today.
Below is my dad’s mother Grandma Arlene. This picture was taken when she and my Papa were visiting my family in Toledo, Ohio, where we lived at the time. She had a stroke in the car on the trip home. I don’t think I was quite two yet when she died. I don’t remember her and that saddens me. She’s the only grandparent I can’t remember, but I know she and my dad were close. He’s the best and has told me stories about her. I’m thankful she was a good mother to my dad and I’m thinking of her today.
