I have three other Mom’s that I get to do this Mothering journey with! I say get to instead of have to, because life is better when looking at it with gratitude!
Many of us are sharing this parenting journey with someone outside of a “nuclear family”. You can choose to be angry, resentful or bunched up about it. Let me know how that is working for you. We choose to make it happen. To put in the work, to find our common ground to love and respect each of the pieces making this beautiful life possible.
I wanted to share a couple of clips from my Mother’s Day Facebook post and my husband’s.
This is what my husband wrote! “There are too many moms in my life to even try and tag them all. I have been so blessed with a mother, mother in law, sisters, cousins and friends that have made such an impact on my life. While it’s not the way anyone would’ve drawn it up, I have been extremely blessed to be a part of a blended family that includes the best mom’s on the planet! I hear stories all the time about all the drama involved in most of these situations, but the women in my children’s lives have always put their children above any potential drama. They are the backbone in this crazy family unit that we have assembled. I couldn’t be more proud of my children or the women who have molded them into the beautiful people they are becoming. Thank you to all the moms… there are no steps in this family. I appreciate you all so much! Happy Mother’s Day Stephanie, Andrea, Michelle and Jess.”
Here’s part of my post. “How Lucky I am!!!…Lastly to Andrea, Jessica and Michelle who I’m lucky enough to be on this mothering journey with and am proud to say that I love each of you ❤ ”
My children wouldn’t be who they are without these 3 women. My husband wouldn’t be the man I married without Andrea and Michelle. I wouldn’t have been the woman my husband chose without Jess. Over the last 8 years though, we’ve all become family. We work together, come together and love together because we get to!
Happy Day after Mother’s Day!! It is late, but I was busy enjoying the heck out of my family yesterday.
