Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, I get to enjoy it and also honor all mother’s out there. This Mother’s Day I wanted to share with you the “other mother” who has changed my life, and I am so glad that she was able to touch my life in a way no one will ever know.
So what is an “other mother”?
To me, an “other mother” is a mom who has helped me, has taken me under her wings, has supported me, and so on. A mom whose advice and support has allowed me to be a better mom, daughter, friend, and wife is the “other mother.”
Who’s the “other mother” I want to honor this Mother’s Day?
My friend Sherry.
An amazing and wonderful friend, mom, daughter, and wife; I was so lucky to have around for many years. If you don’t follow this blog, Sherry was my other writer and personal cheerleader when I told her about this crazy adventure I was going to take.
I wanted to quit my job and become a stay at home mom. I wanted to start making money from home and help other family with their finances. Not once did Sherry ever laugh at me, nor said anything negative. She was my personal cheerleader, she told me to go for it!
When my son was diagnosed with Autism and I was completely lost, Sherry was there for me. When 2015 seemed to be the year where I just couldn’t get things right, her advice and love helped me get through it.
Sadly, last year my friend and cheerleader was diagnosed with cancer and she fought till the end. I lost my friend last week, and the fact that during her last 12 months, Sherry did what Sherry wanted, to be happy; it gave me the encouragement to keep going and live my life to the fullest.
Her support, her love, and understanding has changed me to a better person. Her courage to live life to the fullest without worrying what others thought was encouraging; not only to me, but many others.
As mother of a special needs child myself, she was the person I needed that understood my fears and answered all my questions.
Life wasn’t always kind to Sherry, and yet she managed to keep going and continue to touch others. That is why Sherry is the “other mother” in my life, because she was an amazing person to my children and anyone she touched.
I will always remember you and will love you and miss you siempre!
