Shout Out: April
You know that saying “it takes a village?” In recent years, I have discovered this to be so very true. This month I’d like to acknowledge a very important member of my village. Three years ago we moved into our current home. Just down the road lives my oldest son’s best friend. Our families have since become very close, and Aiden’s best friend’s mom, Amy, has become my best friend. She has been a constant source of encouragement and support. Both she and her daughter, Emma, have helped me with my kiddos on many occasions, whether it be watching them as I run out to a meeting or appointment, giving one of the kids a ride to/from somewhere, or helping with some other task that requires more than one of me! Amy treats my kids as if they are her own; they’ve even come to call her Mom #2! There are so many days I couldn’t possibly get through without her. So here’s to you, Amy, my amazing friend. Thank you for being there for me and for my family. I couldn’t possibly ask for a more caring, thoughtful, true, and loyal friend.
