Simple Woman

I am thinking...
about seeing my friends tomorrow when we drive up to attend their mother's funeral.  Remember my mom as well.

 On long life as a huge advantage for a parentFrom my late teens onward, the relationship between my mother and me improved steadily. As the years progressed, I enjoyed her more and, yes, loved her more. Unless either an adult child or a parent has serious psychological issues, I am convinced that what I experienced is quite common. There is an enormous amount of luck -- good and bad -- in life; and one of the greatest pieces of good luck for a parent (and child, for that matter) is for parents and children to have the time to work things out.

I am thankful for...
my friends.  We are the godparents for their daughter; he is the godfather for our son, and she and I went through all the trials and tribulations of being young wives together.
