Valentine’s Day is a day to show love. This year as I started to think about the day my mind went straight to my stepmom sisters. A group of women who overflow with love and support for one another.
I wrote this Valentine for all the wonderful stepmoms out there to thank them for the love they show to one another. Whether it is on a blog, on Twitter, Facebook or in person… stepmom sisters are blessing each other.
You understand the journey and share your joys and sorrows
You never judge but listen and offer a loving word and hope for a better tomorrow
You love each other through the hard times
You share advice on how to achieve peace time
You make sure another stepmom never feels alone
You give love to another when it feels like there is none in their home
When a stepmom hasn’t been heard from in awhile
You reach out with a kind word, an offer to help, a gentle (virtual) smile
You validate one another’s joys and fears
You develop trust and gently tell one another what they really need to hear
You are love
You are a gift!
You may not always have the best days but you will always be the best. On those days when you are down and feeling blue, please know your feelings are real and you are not alone. So many of us have shed the same tears and cried the same cries. We’ve wished for the same things and let go of the same dreams. Together we are stronger, smarter and wise.
You bless all those around you! Today on Valentine’s Day and everyday… please know you are love and you bring so much love to each other. Thanks for who you are and what you do.
