Between our busy schedules, I do not get to see my mom nearly as often as I’d like. At the beginning of 2013, I moved my monthly homeopathic appointments to Wednesday so that while I was on her end of town I would be able to visit her. Last Wednesday was the first Wednesday things worked out that we were able to meet.
I was excited. Although we catch up on the phone several times a week, it’s always great to have one on one time with her in person. After all, my mom is one of my very best friends and one of my favorite people in the world. She is someone I share so much of my life with. Someone I can be myself around (even when I am feeling sensitive or blue, or just have a lot on my plate), someone I laugh with and confide in—everything from the joys and struggles in life and with my health to the calls I used to make to her about figuring out the first few years of this thing called marriage. She is always there for me.
I know I am blessed to have such a beautiful person as my mom and do not take it for granted. It is no wonder that at her last job she retired from 6 months ago she had many friends of all ages. I think to some she was the cheerful, fun and interesting mom maybe they wish they had. I completely understood how bummed they were when they found out she was leaving and offered to still meet with her, showering her with hugs. She is one of the kindest people you could ever hope to meet and is always reading so is a wonderful conversationalist, never running out of interesting things to talk about. If you bring up a topic of conversation, there is a good chance she has read something about it and has something to share.
Last Wednesday we met in a town that has many, many restaurants—most of which are chains. Living with multiple food sensitivities, I am lucky if there is more than one place in any given town that is safe for me to eat and actually provides a healthy meal worth eating. Chains are not usually in this repertoire. We decided to meet at the Woodbury Cafe. It had been a long while since we had eaten here. I guess we kind of forgot about it. The food was delicious and so was our time together. I took some pictures to share with you.
I love you Mom! And I look forward to our meeting later this month! Thanks for all the support you have given me over the years with my health and diabetes. Your encouragement and love all these years has carried me far and gotten me through some really tough times. Thank you.
Peace & Light,
