Thanks to the Mothers

I couldn't let the day go by without thanking a few of the mothers in my life.

First of all, my own mom.  My mother is the most amazing woman I know.  She is one of the most compassionate, loving people in the world.  Throughout my life, she has always been there; supporting me, teaching me, crying with me, loving me.  I have never doubted the depth of her love.  I have learned so much from her and love spending time with her.  She is a great mother and a wonderful grandma.  I love you mom.  Thanks for everything.

Next up is my mother-in-law.  I have so much fun whenever I am with her.  She is a wonderful person and an amazing grandma.  Most importantly, she did a great  job raising her son.  I will forever be grateful to her for loving, supporting, and raising Kirk.  I know she was a great mother because I see the fruits of her labor.  Thank you so much.

This Mother's Day, I also feel that is important to thank another important mother in my life, Zoe's birth mother.  That woman understands unconditional love in the way only a mother can.  She loved Zoe enough that she did one of the hardest things a mother could do, giving her away.  She is a wonderful woman and a great example to me of love and strength, qualities that I hope Zoe inherits from her.  I love her for what she has given my family and for the life she has given to Zoe.  There are not words to say how thankful I am to her.
