Aloha is...capturing the LAST first day of school picture for my stepson, Aidan, as a student at Westview High School! (I'll find his freshman picture another time.) Other moms warned me how fast the time goes by and now I regret not believing them!
It has been an honor and a privilege to watch this kid grow up since meeting him at 9 years old. I only pray that someday when he looks back on this time, fishing through his childhood memories, that he'll see me. Maybe he'll see that for some East Coast chick with a funny accent, different opinions and views of the world, and no official experience as a wife or mother, that I had the courage to step up to the plate and take some swings at the game of stepmotherhood. If he sees that I was willing to try something new and different and give all I have, then maybe someday he'll be inspired to do the same.
DREAM BIG, Lil' Q!
Ps. He's barefoot because we're 100% virtual right now. Ha!
