Because this has been such a bad year we hope she gets her million dollar wish. But before then we have a few things we want to tell her. Along with Remind her why we love that she is still here with us.
My mom has had to learn how to live on her own this year. No my dad didn't run away. She lost her dad. So a new normal has had to take place.
She did get her wish though. We were all in one place for Christmas. We were all in one place for Thanksgiving too!
My mom has been the one to step in when tears are running down my face and I can't be the strong mom any more.
She has gotten a look of PURE love and joy holding my new baby. She came up and was there when we brought him in the door. She came up every ( or almost) every weekend while he was in the hospital and she has been there to witness some pretty cool things. (Like first look at those pretty BLUE EYES! )
She has spent hours at pools watching while my dad does all the work keeping my kid up and down the stairs. She has rocked him and loved him and encouraged him along with me.
She has gotten FURIOUS at him being left on a bus or breaking his nose or falling down. And she has helped teach all the other kids that it is ok to be different and she encourages him to be the best Tyler ever.
But most of all. She is a great grandma. She loves all the kids. She loves everything about them and want even more for them to be happy.
