We Are Friends!

So, a couple of weeks ago, I posted about how difficult it is being a step-mother. You can read that post here.  That was my "freeing" post. I wrote what I felt and didn't care what anyone thought of me. I received awesome feedback form some really amazing women who have gone through or are going through the same situation as I am. It felt so good to finally get all those feelings out and have someone understand.

Well, last night I had a moment. A moment I thought wouldn't happen. Amberly, my 7-year old stepdaughter called ME to chit-chat. Yes me! I was in shock when she called her Dad and asked to speak to me. She really didn't have anything to say, she just wanted to chat. Honestly, I was in such shock, I can't even remember if I "chatted" back. At that moment, I realized "WE ARE FRIENDS!" She likes me and trusts me.   I have been anxiously awaiting this moment and it just happened. It feels GREAT!!!

I hope to continue this relationship with her. I want to be her friend. I want to be that person she can come to with anything, especially during those dreaded teen years. I am loving this moment and will try to ride it out as long as I can!
