To the special mothers in my life...
My Grandma Sue!
She has battled breast cancer, heart problems, and the loss of her husband/love of her life to lung cancer. She lives the life she wants in the house she built with her spouse, in the town she moved to in the late 1950s. She is independent. She has made the trip from Texas to Tennessee and beyond (Arizona, North Carolina...) for every important event in my life. Still. At the age of 73. She exemplifies the bond of family. She is my grandma.
She is grandmother to my children, but, more importantly, she is mother to my husband. She raised the most loving, supportive man--a man who encourages me and pushes me to be a better person. She raised a responsible man, but a man not engulfed by his responsibilities. She gave me my other half, and she brings peace whenever she visits my home.
And to the ones who make me a mother...
You are my heart.
Happy Mother's Day, all.Because of the holiday, the Sunday Foreign Post Roundup will post on Monday. Come back then!
