One of my proudest roles in this life is being a "Stepmom" to two wonderful young ladies!  Partnering with their father and mother to providing them with what they need to grow up to be everything that we hope our children will be, it was reminded to me last evening when I was given this wonderful treasure from my husband's youngest, how lucky I am! 

"Compassionate and adaptable, a stepmom is a loving guardian with heartfelt priorties.  The vibrant pansy is a resilient flower that endures all conditions with grace.  It's bright center denotes the positive place where love originates and recognizing the strenth of this caretaker".
