Where Credit is Due
Think about this. You are close to your mother during the formative years of your life, literally depending on her for your very existence. Then when you move away as an adult, you rarely see each other. This is what happened to me. I live hours from my mom, and even though we talk on the phone every day, we don't see each other very often. I imagine this has happened to quite a few of you too. My mom was in town the last few days, and when I was at work, she cleaned my entire apartment and did my laundry. I can't tell you how much I appreciate these simple gestures. It made me realize how much I do need her in my life, and not just for the tangible benefits of her helping me. There really is nothing like a mother's love in your life and I am so thankful for her. I can't wait for her visit next week.
On another note, isn't it fun to look at the "grown ups" in our life and see them as kids? My mom was one cute little girl.
