Well tomorrow is Mother's day, and of course my Mom is one of the driving forces behind the person I have come to be. I am grateful for all she has given me and look forward to spending time with her tomorrow.
Their are 2 other wonderful women I would like to pay homage to as well. In the photo the person on the left is my sissy Dianne. She has been a huge part of my life in so many ways. My maid of honor, my childrens crazy aunty, my motivator to get my artistic act together, & more recently my very bestest friend. I can't tell you the amount of time we spend talking to eachother & laughing together each day! And who better to snap me out of a funk and hold me accountable for who I am.
The person in the middle is my cousin, Erin. We were married about the same time. We had our first born sons about the same time. We had our second born daughters about the same time, and then she had another daughter and I fell behind alittle. Then I had another daughter and then to top it off she had yet another daughter. For those of you that have lost count that's Erin 4 kids and me 3! So we have shared the bond of motherhood for almost 16 years now. She has been a wonderful support system for me. When I thought I was crazy I would talk to her and find out she was crazy too! It was so nice to have another person going through the same stages with me. We have learned so much from each other and she has enriched my life tremendously!
So to these 2 women, one who is an Aunty and one who is a fellow Mom-I salute you with all my heart, I praise you with the song of angels (Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhh! You have to make the sound!) and I thank you both for the friendship and love you have blessed me with for so many wonderful years. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
