Blog Challenge Day 17 of 30: My Family

Here’s what my family looks like. Not your typical family but we make it work. There was a time I carried a load of guilt that KT’s father wasn’t in his life full time. PLEASE NOTE: IN HIS SON’S LIFE.

Today I no longer feel that way. I love this little boy tween more than I can ever express in words. Instead, I try to be the best mom with a touch of friendship that I can be. I don’t try and take his father’s place. I’m not trying to be both parents.

I hope he knows that every decision I make is filtered through two lenses. I ask myself: What does GOD say about it? and how will it affect Krystopher? I’ve said not to relationships, jobs, trips, things to ensure my son is provided a good life.

More importantly, I cherish every mommy-son moment spent watching Food TV, playing Wii, playing superheros (I have this kid fetish for superheros, shhhhh don’t tell), dining, traveling and reading to name a few things we enjoy together.

This is my family. It is full of love and I wouldn’t change the look of it unless it was something much better gifted to us by GOD.

Don't forget a magazine subscription is up for grabs here

Air Kisses,

I have been thinking a lot the choices that I made in the past and the feeling of regret that it has caused in my life. But just like you I no longer carry unhealthy guilt!! We are not perfect but we do the best we can for our children. Continue to cherish every minute with your wonderful son!

What a handsome son you have! Oh man! The things we do and feel because of guilt.....I really believe that is opposite of what God has for us. You have a LOVELY family! Big hug to you! ~Serene

*TEARS* I am going to start bringing some Kleenex with me when I read your blog. LOL!!!!
WOW… this was a really nice post! I sooo agree with everything you have said. God has blessed you with a KING and he will know how to treat a woman like a QUEEN because he has one for a MOM!!!!

Your family is beautiful, it is unique and a special gift from God. It is a wonderful thing to have a child and to experience the wonder it brings. Cherish one another always.

Such a sincere post. I like that you said you don't try to fill his dad shoes but you try to be the best mom you can be. I love that you and your son have a relationship. Good relationships with moms areneeded just as much as relationships with dads.

I probably say this a lot but I'm amazed at how much you all relate to what I share from the heart. I appreciate the supportive comments. KT is one of the best things that has happened to me. I'm proud to call him son.
