As many of you know I am a "step" mom of 3 children. Our eldest is 25, Patricia, our middle is Elizabel at 19 and Angel our son is 14. He lives with us full time, the others do not. We have one granddaughter, Marianaly, and she is 8. I cherish being a mom!! So when we celebrated Christmas this past week, I was given some of the BEST gifts ever. It started with our granddaughter giving us both a HOMEMADE Christmas card and on mine it had Wela (Spanish for grandma) never had she called me that before. She always calls me Amy. I was beaming with JOY. Then my eldest gave me things to make me a DIVA, lol. Since I am going through chemotherapy, I have not felt that way. Zebra and pink phone case, pretty nightgown. Then my middle one gave me a mug with MOM on it....OH MY GOODNESS!!! It does not get any better. I have never gotten a MOM present before. A few weeks before Christmas my hubby and son talked about getting me a new rocker/recliner to help with my "therapy" so that was an early present.
I think maybe for all of us this HOLIDAY was a special one because of my cancer and chemotherapy. This will not defeat me, no way. It has though brought my family closer together. For that I am grateful!!
