On this Mother’s Day, we honor all mothers and grandmothers who have made a difference in our lives.
Some mother’s are our biological mothers and some elected to become mother’s adopting their children carefully.
Others are surrogate mothers and grandmothers, becoming that extra mother or grandmother to us.
No matter how we come by the title, there is no other feeling in the world I have experienced as being a mom and a grandma.
I was fortunate to be with my kids during their growing up years, spending lots of time doing everything with them, especially as they were young.
My kids were fortunate to have a second mom to them, Kathy Planck, from the time they were babies until Abby was 8 and Adam 10, when we moved from Indiana to Minnesota. She was there for them often and was there to fill in when I was gone or traveling with the kids dad. Kathy helped shape them during those crucial years.
She added lots of humor and her own flavor to their lives. I say it takes a village to raise a child and also as we become adults, to move along our path here on earth.
My mom (shown in the photo attached with my dad) as you’ve read in other blog posts, was and is a mom who was always there for us 5 kids. She made it her job to make sure we had dinner on the table, our clothes were clean, we went to church each week and had a sense of God, family and community. We knew we were loved always.
My mom is being honored at church on Mother’s Day this year. I wrote something my sister is reading and my only brother is speaking as well. Mom doesn’t know about it. This will be a surprise! My niece will FaceTime with me so I can “be there” in real time. I love technology!~
I got to spend the afternoon and early evening yesterday with my almost 3 year old granddaughter, Livi. What a joy she is! She’s so smart and fun and we have an amazing connection with each other.
Today Hale and I will spend time with Gavin and Phoebe, as we do most Saturdays. They are such fun and we enjoy being with them. Family time is so very important.
Leave me a comment below about your thoughts on mothers and grandmothers!
Blessings to you,
