In My life

Could it be that I am the only one with GREAT step parents? Because all my life I have heard stories about them being mean. It's in the movies, the story books, and the cartoons. Even in real life stories.  It's a rare occasion when you hear about them being good. 

I don't remember a time in my life that I have not had a step parent. Up until I was 16, I only had a stepmother, and after that, I have had a step mother and a step father. So if the stories are right, and step parents really are usually mean, I gotta say, my parents are awesome. Because they chose the best people ever to remarry. I love my step parents.

My step mother is warm, kind-hearted and she always goes out of her way to make everyone around her happy and comfortable. She is a friend when I need her to be and a parent other times. 

My step dad is the best. He is so loving and kind, I really couldn't ask for anyone better. He doesn't have children of his own so I am the closest thing and he loves me to bits. 

I mean, they are not perfect human beings, because nobody is...but as far as parenting goes, they really are perfect. I am so thankful for their presence in my life, because without them, I am sure my life would be much more different. Not in a good way.

My stepdad Abdul Rasheed, and Nafew :)

So yeah, my step parents are awesome. I have never had the pleasure of living with both my parents at the same time. So it's these two people that fill the huge void whenever I am with either of my parents...and I have no complaints. Just a whole lot of gratitude. 


  1. I love, love, love this!! You made me tear up! What beautiful words! I am 100% sure they are as grateful to have you in their lives, as you are to have them in yours.

    I adore my step-mom, too. I'm going to call her right now to tell her! :)

    1. It's so good to know there are others that feel the same way. I kinda feel like I have two moms and two lucky am I?
