Special ladies in my life

I didn't get to post on Mother's Day but I wanted to post about a few special ladies in my life. I have at least 4 special women that have meant a lot to me & my kids & so many more but I wanted to write about these 4 in particular. My kids are so blessed to have many grandmothers & aunts that love them dearly.

First there is my mom- I am so grateful for her giving me life & now that I am a mother myself I appreciate more & more the sacrifices in her life that gave up for her kids. I am sure she had dreams that she put on hold to raise her family, and for that I am grateful. The kids like to visit 'Grandma Mommy' as they call her.

Next there is my mother-in-law- Grandma Linda. The obvious fact that she gave life to Matt is one thing, but her continual sacrifice for her kids & grand kids is amazing. On any given weekend she has at least one of her grand kids with her. She will always have a special spot in Zeke's life since she was there the day his history with our family began.

Another lady that has a special spot in my life is my step-mom. Although she & my dad were only married 6 short years before he passed away, she is still someone special to our family. The kids know her as Grandma 'Nore

Lastly, Matt's Aunt Janita has become another special person that I am blessed to have in my life. She has the patience of a saint with the kids and they love their 'Aunite Nia' - Maddy in particular because she is allowed to eat honey with a spoon at auntie's house.

I know these 4 will eventually read this post, so I just want to send you all a special hug & a big thank you for being part of my life.
