You write a touching story. At my son’s recent (second) wedding I told his father’s wife she had done a good job bringing him up. Not his step-mother…she won’t be that until I’m dead, but the exactitudes seem irrelevant in the light of the pleasure your son’s other mother gave you.

Funny, I didn’t even think to give my ex credit for the fine fellow my now middle-ages son is. He was always close to his sons and though we were not meant to be together forever, he seems to have chosen a mate more suited to him and he and his wife did well with our sons…..…. one more good thing in the world to think of before i sleep………

You are so fortunate in your new relationship with your son’s “other” mother and so fortunate that your childhood didn’t taint your mothering. I’m happy for you.
