Special women.

I have written quite a bit in the past about my mother. she's incredible. BUT today I want to write about two other beautiful women in my life:

BD's Mother and Grandmother.

They have embraced me into their family, and are just such incredible Grandmothers to my son. He has a very special relationship with both of them, and for that they hold a very special place in my heart.

BD and I conceived Aidyn very early on in our relationship. In fact we were only together for a few months when we got the big news. His Grandmother is a very Godly woman. She is very conservative, and we were both worried about how she would take the news.

We planned a dinner, and tried to come up with the best way to break the news to her. I was terrified. I loved her so much, and I was so worried that she would think poorly of me. When BD Finally got up the nerve to tell her. She simply smiled and said "Well, thats just great!" She hugged us both, and a week later she gave me a home-made quilt.

It was those simple words she allowed me to feel excited. Her warmness and heart warmed me and helped me get through those first few months. Between her hugs, home made apple sauce, and her prayers I will for ever be grateful!

As for BD's mother. She is incredibly sweet. She is hardworking, funny, kind, and creative. She is always busy, but when we visit she always makes time for conversation. She challenges me, supports me, and loves me. I love that although BD and I split up, she never gave up on me. She still allowed me to be a part of their family.

When BD and ended things, I cried even harder about losing his family. I thought things would be different.. and they were. Sort of. But these two women never stopped being supportive of Aidyn and me. I am so blessed to have them in our lives.

Next weekend Aidyn and I will travel back to Iowa to spend time with BD. I can't wait to give these women the thanks they deserve. I'll also spoil them with some special gifts and flowers. They may not be my blood relatives, but they are mothers in my heart.

Take time to thank the special women in your life. The ones that gave birth to you, and the ones that tend to your heart. I am so blessed to have such beautiful women in my life!

What a sweet and sincere post! My parents are divorced, but my Mom is still super close with my Dad's family. Those bonds never died when their marriage did.
