I spent the day at the doctor with a former client, who is now a close friend. She is 92 years old and one of the strongest women I know. Because of her age, and the fact that she is always dressed to the 9s, people in the waiting room kept coming over to tell her how fantastic she looks, and they all told me how nice I was for taking my grandmother to the doctor.
It seems, the way we were interacting led people to believe we were family. You don’t need to be blood to have a close relationship. I am very fortunate that I do have an amazing mother and aunts in my life, but there is still plenty of room for an honorary grandmother.
In the spirit of Mother’s Day, celebrate loving the women in your life. The mothers, grandmothers, aunts and friends.
