The Women of My Life

I have always been blessed with women in my life.

Strong. Beautiful. Independent. Smart. Caring, Loving. Feminine. Resilient.

Maybe that was to make up for the lack of male role models. Now don’t me wrong, I have my fair share of men to look up to and guide me….Uncle Harold, Granddad E.C, my stepfather Leon, Mr. Phelps, Mr. Harper, cousin David and countless others. The 8 men I had stand at my side at my wedding are each phenomenal and have left an indelible imprint on my life. My own father is not a real presence in most of my memories growing up where he should have been. I’ve long since come to terms with that and that’s not the point of this message.

The leading ladies in my life all amaze me and have filled up my heart. My wife is a strong, independent woman who is not afraid to speak her mind. Her heart is among the biggest I’ve ever seen and she forgives people completely and honestly.
My sister is one of the smartest people I know. She does this while still being a fun, interesting and well-rounded person. My mother is one of the bravest and strongest people I’ve had the pleasure to know. Her willpower and resolve are second to none and she taught me and my sister how to love and live and endure the world.

It makes me happy to know that my daughter will have these 3 (and my other adopted Mom’s out there) in her life. I have no doubt she will be AMAZING!
