Mother's Day

In case you hadn't heard, it's Mother's Day. I've posted about my mother on Mother's Days in the past but that was in 2011 when this blog just started.

We are still doing the same tradition (shocker) of going over to my brothers house and grilling steaks for the mothers and burgers, brats and dogs for the rest of us. I've actually been a little closer to my mom the last year or so because my kids get off the bus at her house so when I get off at work, I just go over there and hang out with her (when she's home) until both kids get home. So we've talked a lot more than in the past, plus I get to complain about work with her because I work where she retired from so she knows who I'm talking about. She's been actively involved with our trying to purchase a home as well as always helping out when we need it. Whether that be keeping the kids so we can go to appointments or even buying my daughter a new bat for softball. So things haven't changed, nor do I expect them to when it comes to my relationship with my mother. I love her and she loves me, that's all anyone can ask for. It's all anyone should need is to know that at least one person will always love them.

My mom, myself and my grandmother.

The 2nd mother in my life would be my wife. She may not get to "mother" her kids much anymore since they are grown and have their own lives but she is a great mother to my 2. She treats them as her own and does anything for them. She has gone above and beyond being just a "step" mother, she is the one raising them and is always there for them. She may have not of birthed them, but she's more of a mother than anyone else.

So to both of the Mother's in my life, happy Mother's Day. You are both loved and appreciated more and more everyday.
