Two Very Special Daughters

I have two very special daughters in my life. Though not blood, they are my daughters. One is Jenny. Jenny is my son Chad's wife. This young woman is so special to me. I couldn't ask for a better daughter in law, in fact I hate the term in-law. Jenny fills our life with such humor, and I can't imagine life without her. Chad and Jenny are so happy, and so in love. To watch them together fills my heart with such joy. I love Jenny to pieces, and always will. She and Chad have blessed me with two of the most wonderful grand daughters, and I couldn't feel more complete.
The other is Becky. This girl has been in my life since meeting my husband 24 years ago. She was only 4 then, but it was just the start of a very special relationship. Becky is Ken's step niece, but became an important part of our family. I basically raised Becky from 6 to 11 years of age. I'm so fortunate to have her in my life. She has blossomed into a beautiful woman, a wonderful mother, and special friend. I consider her my daughter in every sense of the word.
Yes, I have been truly blessed by these young women. I can't imagine life without them, but what mother could? After all, they're my daughters!

How lovely to be blessed with these women in your life. I would certainly treasure each one of them if I had such special ladies in my life. I do treasure my one daughter, but no daughter in law.
