To My Kids’ Other Mother

Standard

Often times I am confronted with questions of how I am able to step back or how am I able to “share” to of my most precious gifts with someone in our situations. The answer is easy… God has opened my heart and mind in a way mortality can’t comprehend. I know ultimately all four parents involved want what is best for the children. 

There are times when I wonder if I matter to the kids, but the peaceful reassurance of the Spirit reminds me that each parent in our children’s lives plays a part and a role in their growth and development. I honestly believe there are no accidents.

To My Kids’ Other Mother,

Gratitude, respect, honor, and faith are words that quickly come to mind as I think of the mother you are to our two beautiful children. I have often referred to you as the “North Star” for the kids. You give them things I have not been able to. Divinity has been a key component in bringing to pass the reality of today.

When sister called me back in 2010 mentioning she was at the park playing with Dad and Joey, my heart skipped a beat. I heard the joy in her voice and knew this new person in her life must have been someone special. Then a short first meeting in the USU extension parking lot validated that validated you were in our lives, and that allowed me to open my heart and mind to a reflection and spiritual journey I had no idea I was about to embark upon.

I look at sister and how far she has come. You have pushed her and encouraged her more than I could. My natural reaction is to protect but I have learned from you, allowing them to grow is good! I see brother and how he pushes all of us with his independence, and it makes me smile. I know it will take all of us to guide his creativity. Oh, how I am grateful that God’s goodness has allowed all of us to enjoy His two precious children.

I love how we laugh, and I love how we communicate. I am grateful we are a united front and know there is not a better formula for our kids in our situation and I look forward to that in the future.

Sending my gratitude to you!

Crystal
