As you all know, my relationship with my mom has been a little less than average. We have a decent relationship now, but i still can't spend mothers day with her. Even though she has changed, she still isn't a great mom and i think seeing her on this day will make my day suck and that's not what i am aiming for.
Instead, I'm going to go spend the weekend with my dad and his sweet wife. Not my biological dad, my real dad, the man who raised me. My dad has always been there for me, he has kinda took on both roles, my mom and dad in a way. He taught me all the things a dad should but also some of the things a mom usually does.
He taught me to be tough, have compassion, a great work ethic, how to be a great friend, a loving spouse and above all the love a parent should have for there children.
Instead of going through the motions of mothers day with my mom, I'm going to spend it and celebrate it with the man who taught me to be a strong confident women and more importantly a great mother.
I know you don't read my blog dad, but i am truly grateful for everything you have done and continue to do for me. I am so happy i get to spend mothers day with you, I love you!
