Wednesday’s are for wonderment #wondermentwednesday October 17th my dad underwent a 6 1/2 hour surgery followed by 10 days in the hospital. To say it felt like the longest days of our lives would be an understatement. As my mom continued to gather herself, her thoughts and make her way to the hospital day-in and day-out for 10 days, my job was to keep the (business) place from going up in flames. I didn’t want to let him down. I didn’t want to let their business go under. I didn’t want her to worry. I was overwhelmed. On edge. Scared. Everyday for a little over a week. Let me tell you about my mom for a moment. She’s an independent woman but chooses to let my dad take care of her. She’s a strong woman even though her exterior may fool you. She’s capable even though some may think she’s not. She’s got the brain power and knowledge of a thousand pompous professors. And most importantly, she calms me when I need it the most. I cried more that week than I have in the past 6 months. You were my rock. You reassured me when I was doubtful, when I screwed up. We counted on each other - to help get through a difficult time, working together, laughing some, crying a little and built a stronger relationship. You are irreplaceable. You are phenomenal. I couldn’t have asked for a better employer, friend or Mom to go through life with. I love you, Mom. • • • • • #family #love #life #mom #mother #laugh #smile #myfamily #strong #strongwomen #wednesday #happy #myrock #motherdaughter #momoftheyear

    You and all your family are amazing! All very irrereplaceable! Miss all your pretty and handsome faces. Just so everyone knows how awesome Alex and her parents are, Alex and I dated for a couple years and I was young dumb and broke lol and didn't treat Alex or our relationship the way any smart young man would've and they still welcome me with hugs, like all my posts and treat me like a member of the family! Amazing people to say the least. Sorry for the long comment but I thought it was appropriate. Love and miss you all 😗☺ I hope everything with Michael and the surgery went well and he has a speedy recovery
