With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it gives me great pleasure to express my gratitude to those who have made a difference in my life. Cents of Style gave me the opportunity to try out their adorable Grateful T-shirt for my fashion Friday story, and I am very excited to share this all with you.
Growing up, my stepdad was a very big part of my life. Though he was a workaholic, when I did see him, he would help me out with my homework and watch cartoons and movies with my siblings and me. I respected his traditional ways, as a provider for his wife and her children. I remember when I was 10, he drove me to my bus stop because it was raining. He had expressed his desire for me to not settle for less than what I deserved. He told me I needed a hard-working, God-fearing man who loved me unconditionally. That advice has stuck with me for many, many years. At 15, I received a phone call from my mother saying that he had passed away from a pulmonary embolism. It left me heartbroken, not only for myself, but for my family. To me, he was a great example of what a husband and a father should be.
To this day, I am grateful for his example, and his advice on my self worth. I feel grateful that I had the opportunity to know such a man, who I knew endured troubles of his own, but still stood tall and strong for his family. I truly hope that he sees my own family, and is proud of what I have become as a wife and mother, who I married, and how I am raising my children. I am blessed beyond measure!
