My Mom visited over the weekend and just left this morning. We talked, shopped, cleaned/organized my neglected house, went out to eat, and set up her new MacBook (and Facebook profile!). And I’m feeling incredibly blessed.
I’m so grateful for her humor. For her perspective on life. For her patience, and gentle encouragement, and willingness to learn. For her humility.
I’m thankful that we don’t agree on everything. And that she continues to practice her debate skills (which sometimes drove me crazy when I was younger, but now means that I consider many sides of an issue before deciding what I think).
I’m grateful she lives only a few hours away, and that in between, we check in regularly via email and phone (and soon, over Skype too).
I love that people who know her can tell I’m her daughter.
I’m thankful that even after spending all weekend with her, I am sad to see her go home.
What are you grateful for today?
