Not only are Michele Thomas and Randa Olesky best friends, but they are also, in their words, “moms-in-law”. Meaning, Randa’s son, Stephen, is married to Michele’s daughter Lindsay. Their story of how two large loving families connected is completely unique. On this episode of Still With You we celebrate Mother’s Day with the the belief that one does not have to have had a child to be honored on this holiday. I am firm believer that mentors, teachers, leaders, even friends, carry the qualities mothers have in of caring for one another. After working alongside Michele and Randa for the past two years I have witnessed their genuine compassion for children and love for friends, even outside of their own families. They both have been a influential mothering voice to me and are close friends that I admire so much. Their is no one I would have rather sat down over brunch with to talk about this subject of mothering than these two incredibly strong women. Their words are full of wisdom and the stories they share in this episode will break and also bless your heart. Often the most memorable moments have sides of beauty and pain. They both agreed that the best way to be a great mom, is to let God lead.
To all mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, mentors, teachers, leaders, and caretakers we honor you. We are thankful for all you do to make our world a better place. May this episode encourage you to continue in your faithfulness to others. We love you! In celebration of this day I am a hosting a GIVEAWAY in partnership with Ciao Bella Boutique and Salon.
