So, as Mother’s day approaches…I think of my own wonderful mother as well as my grandmothers. We share a common bond in that we had wonderful and long lasting relationships with our natural mothers. However, I must also honor all the women who taken on the role of motherhood to children who they never gave birth too. So…I honor Grandma Tamsey Shawver and Grandma Lulu Dollar and thank them for taking on the role of mother to Grandma Florence and Grandma Sophia. As they helped shape them into the wonderful women that they became in life…they have also helped shape me as their great granddaughter. Happy Mother’s Day Momma…and all of the other Mom’s out there whether you gave birth to your children or took them into your heart!
