I love being a mom. I sometimes feel sad I only had one child, but when she turned out so wonderful why mess with “perfection.”
Seriously, my daughter has been pretty busy at work, took a trip to Chicago, has a social life and a visit to mom just didn’t fit her schedule well… until today. It was just a couple of hours but we caught up on some things, had a great talk and even watched our guilty pleasure – the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. It does my spirit wonders to have a chance to talk to her in person. We always seem to find something to laugh over.. today it was a sappy moment on the soap we make fun of.
It still amazes me how my daughter turned out to be the wonderful young woman she is today. I don’t feel I set a good example for her, but she turned out great in spite of that. Her dad, in spite of the demons he battled, loved her very much and was a good father to her. Some how the two of us were able to guide her to the woman she is today.
I am happy she is my daughter, thrilled she is my friend and forever will be in awe of the amazingly strong woman she is.
