It was so wonderful to have my mother walk down the aisle with me.

When people ask me how I do all of the things I do, my answer should be that I don't know any other way. My mom worked and looked after me all by herself and I never felt like I was missing out on anything. She made sure I got to participate in everything I wanted to do when I was growing up. I also learned how to be independent. My nana was always busy too. She was never one to sit down for too long when she could be up making supper, working around the house, or going out somewhere. She was on the go all the time so I must get a little bit of that from her. From both my mom and nana, I learned how to cook and bake. There is not much I like doing more than cooking a big meal for family and friends, or baking something with E.
Being a mom isn't always easy but I don't worry too much about whether I am a good mom because I know I must be since I'm doing everything that my mom did and her mom did. There is nothing better than being able to rely on love to know you're doing a good job!
