To My Mother
I know that with the miscarriages that you had had, your pregnancy with me was not an easy one. Thank-you for doing everything you could, including six months of bed rest, so that I would make it here. Thank-you for giving me the gift of life. Thank-you for demonstrating to me in so many ways, including your years of cancer recovery, what it means to be a survivor.
To my Bahquine (grandmother)
Thank-you for being the rock of my childhood. For your stories and your unwavering love. Thank-you for showing me how a woman could be strong, and smart, and generous all at the same time. Especially, thank-you for being that adult person in my life who believed I could do anything I if I set my mind on it. And for telling me this way more than once.
To my Husband’s Mother
Thank-you for hubs. I am so sorry that I never was able to meet you and that you were not able to watch your son grow up, but I know you are so proud of the man your little boy turned out to be. I feel your presence watching over us and see you in the eyes of Daughter each and every day. She looks so much like you.
To my Husband’s Grandmother
Thank-you for raising your grandson to be such a thoughtful, caring man who is so respectful of women and who is so dedicated to family. Those last years of your life that you spent with us were precious and we miss you. Spending their young years with their great grandmother in the home taught the children more about what is important in life than anything we could have said with words.
