Meet My Moms!

Some people might feel sorry for me that I never got to meet my Mother since she passed away the day after I was born. Heck, I've gone through times in my life when I felt sorry for myself! As I mature I know the situation was not meant for that though. Because of my unique circumstances I've had lots of room for other women to influence me in very "motherly" ways. The Lord has definitely blessed me! These are the remarkable women in my life that have helped mold me and shape me in life:

Mother by Nature
This is my biological mother with my sister 1966. We never got to meet each other, but I know she loved me. My sister often tells of how excited she was that I was going to be born. I thrive on her legacy. I'm comforted to know we'll be reunited one day!

Mother by Nurture
This is my sister who through many sacrifices started raising me when she was only 14! She nurtured the good qualities in me to become who I am today.

Mother by Luck
...Not really. I don't believe in mere luck.
This is Wilma who I've been blessed to have as a mom since I was 16. There are no "steps" here! My dad did well:)

Mother by Choice:)
This is my awesome mother-in-law. She's the kindest person you'll ever meet! She treats me as her own and I always feel loved by her.

I love you ladies so much! Happy Mother's Day!
