Today's celebration is sweet and simple, I don't want to take the chance of of allowing my words to take away from the celebration. My youngest daughter is a young 17, she has been in the "Mom you're embarrassing me stage." You know, the one you dread, the one that makes you beg for even a hug. Well, I say has been because recently I have witnessed a few glimmers of hope that this dreaded phase is over!
Amidst the hints of this stage coming to pass was last nights encounter. I went in to say good night and
force give her a hug. When I entered her room she was laying on her bed, I bent down to say goodnight and give her a hug. As we hugged she said, "I love you mommy, I know I don't always act like it and sometimes you wonder , but I do, I love you and I appreciate all you do for me."
With this I went to bed with a happy heart….
