We didn't see eye to eye all the time and argued our fair share, but nothing severs the bond of a mother and daughter. Even though Mama was taken way too soon, I think of her every day and hope that she is proud of who I have become. I hope she sees her very handsome grandson and knows that he is a wonderful soul. I hope she can feel the bond between us and know she is missed and loved. I hope she can see that I have the greatest husband ever and know that we are good parents to Matthew. I hope she is proud of all of her children and is watching over us. I hope she knows she shapes our very futures. I hope she can feel how strong the Brannen blood runs through all of us!
I am thankful to have my stepmother in my life! She is always there when I need her and treats me as one of her own. She fills a void in my life and has the kindest heart! Thank you for taking the "step" out of your title and just being the mom I need. I love you Deborah!
As I am now a mother, today has even more meaning for me. I am thankful that Trace gave me his name and a son. I hope my fellas know how much they mean to me and that I wouldn't trade this life for any other! They are my world and I love them endlessly and unconditionally!
And of course, this post wouldn't be complete without speaking of my newest child. Lincoln brings me such happiness and I love him deeply! Then again, who wouldn't love that face?
