Just a little message to remind everyone that mothers day is just around the corner. I personally think I have the best mother ever. After I got divorced in what seems like a million years ago even though it was back in 96, I got custody of all my kids in 99, one in 97 and the other 2 in 99. I was a single dad going to school and working nights, and my ex had disappeared (she would reappear 10 yrs later) it was my mom who moved in with me to help raise my kids.
She did not have too, she could have said you had them deal with it, but that's just not the way she is. She selflessly helped me raise my kids never thinking of herself only the family.
I owe alot to my mom and my kids will call her anything from Abuela to Mami because that's what she has been for them.
My mom is now 82 yrs old and she has dementia so it's not easy all the time being with her, but I will take care of her the way she gave of herself to take care of me and my kids.
If your mom is still around sparksisters and brothers cherish them and remind them that they are loved!!!
