I have been fortunate to be surrounded by incredible women in my life. My rock, my inspiration is my own wonderful, selfless, gifted mom (I LOVE YOU). My brilliant, talented mother-in-law, Peggy. My second mom by association, Ruth, we think we were separated at birth. My aunt Lucy, my hero. My step-mom, Judy who is never afraid to speak her mind, tell the world what she thinks, she has with an enormous heart. Nanny, Big Moma, Noveline, all gone but live inside of me. My treasured friend Flo, who has passed on, but never leaves my thoughts and heart. My junior high school english teacher, Mrs. Hunt, who inspired and encouraged me to be a better person. To all of my best buddies, from junior high and beyond.
So many women that I love, without them my life would be a dull place indeed. Happy Mother's Day to you and to all those fabulous blogging moms out there to whom I have come to know and adore.
