Honest Words from X

Being told that you're the best thing that has ever happened to someone is amazing to hear from anyone, but being told that by a child - it really is priceless.

Last night, after dinner, X came up to me and said "Lela, I love you so much - you'll never know how much.  You're the best thing that could have ever happened to me and I don't know what I'd do without you, I never want to be without you!"  All I could do was hug him to keep from crying.

I knew being a mom was a calling that I would never not answer.  I never knew that I would be a step mom, never envisioned that as my life.  I always thought I'd marry the man of my dreams, we'd have a bunch of children & then grow old together.  Life handed me another option, more choices, tough choices in leaving my children's dads...and marring a man with a child.  Sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's really really hard and I have wanted to give up more times then I'd like to admit - but I didn't, and just when you think you're not noticed - bam, they hit you right in the feels.....and bring you back to "I appreciate you status".  I love this kid, more then HE'LL ever know.  I choose to love you and you me.  It's a bond that won't be broken!  Can't wait to see what you do with this life kiddo!


  1. Oh this is so very sweet. You are both meant to be together, as "mom" and "son". Keep up the great work people.

  2. He sure does love you honey. You're a wonderful mother, friend and wife. We are lucky to have you.
