I was raised by an incredible mother. She was strong, loving, confident and had more back bone than any man I have ever known. My mom was a single mother who had to work several jobs to keep food on the table. Even though we did not have a ton of time together during those days, we did create some incredible memories. I knew, without a doubt, that my mom loved me more than any other person in this world.When I was growing up, I spent a lot of time with my best friend’s family. His mom always went above and beyond to make sure I felt at home. I was included on all vacations and trips. There was always food in the refrigerator that I knew was bought just for me. She talked to me about college and my future. She helped me my find my way.I started to worry about my mother. I did not want her feelings to be hurt. I knew that I talked a lot about my friend’s family. One day my friend’s mom’s name came up. My mom looked at me and said, “You can never have too many people who love you”. She explained that having this family in my life made her life easier. Knowing that they were there for me when she was working, put her mind at ease. Today my mother has gone to heaven, but my “Nuther Mother” is still here. My children refer to this lady as their Nuther Nana. My mother taught me the best lesson of my life. You cannot have too many people love you and you cannot love too many people. That is how “Nuther Cards” came to be. It is for all those special people in our lives who are linked to us by love.
The strong indepedent women who raised and taught me that you can never have too many people that love you.
My nuther father and my nuther mother.
The two people who loved me as their own and taught me many life lessons such as; family does not always have to be blood but can be linked by love.
