One of those is my stepmom...Mom to me...she's been around since before I was one and although I'll admit that growing up with divorced parents wasn't the easiest thing I've come to cherish her. When I was younger we disagreed more than we agreed on things...we had more to argue about than we did in common but in the end it brought us closer together. After all these years I've found a best friend...someone that is there for me regardless...someone that treats my children like gold and loves my family as much as I do. She has taken my into her heart and never treated me any different than if I were her own blood....there is absolutely no difference been her and my biological parents...she is my Mom as much as my biological mom is my mom and my dad is my dad. What a true blessing in life.
When we were over at my dad's a couple of weeks ago she was outside playing with Caleb and Allie...I got some great pictures of her playing with Allie....I could never repay her for everything she's brought into my life and for the friendship that she's given me. She has fibromyalgia and even though she knows after she plays with them and holds them on their command that she'll probably not be able to move the next day it never stops her from getting on the ground and playing with them.
