Day 6….Thankful for my Kids….


Day 6…  I am thankful for ALL of my kids.  I gave birth to 2 of them, but I have 5.

To my first-born:  You were a surprise…  I loved you with all of my being, you were a lot like me, but a bunch of your Dad thrown in.   Somewhere along the line, you became your own person, with a bunch of  I don’t know what thrown into the works.  While you and I don’t see eye to eye, I tried with you  Maybe not as hard as I could, but I did what I could with what I had, I just didn’t expect you to fight me as much as you did.    I also did not expect you to hurt me as much as you have.

To my second one born:  You were the apple of my eye.  I know a Mother is not supposed to have favorites, but I guess I kinda did.    You have been through a bunch during your years, and I still treasure the way, you call me up and just want to “talk”.   You are a special person,  and I am proud of the man you are becoming. I’m glad that you have found a purpose in life, and are truly starting to be happy.

To My Oldest Son …I am truly thankful, that You came into my life.   You are a truly awesome Young man. While we have had a “different” relationship, I am truly proud of the man you have become, and now that you are starting your life with a Wife, I wish nothing but happiness for both of you.

To My oldest daughter….There was a reason I never gave birth to girls,  I wasn’t sure how to act with girls.    I have loved you since I began dating your Dad.    You and I have had our differences. I have loved you though, more than if I did give birth to you.  I have been allowed to be your friend first, your step-mother second, and while we’ve had our “ups” and “downs”, I have truly been honored to be a part of “your” family.  I say “your family”,  Because  not only do I have you, but your husband and your 2 boys as well.  You’ve allowed me to become a Grandmother to your 2 boys, and that seriously rocks…

To My Youngest daughter….I  have watched you grow up into a young woman, from a very young girl.  I have spent countless vacations with you, and watched you blossom.  We too, have had our “ups & downs”, but I hope you know how much I love you, and also how proud of you I am.

To all of you, each and every one of you have Blessed my life in one way or another. While I may not have always been the “best” Mother, I’ve tried my best.    I am thankful for each of you, in different ways.  But I want you all to know, I love each and every one of you.
