Question: What is your favorite moment with your mom?
Answer: Oh, now that’s a hard one to answer! I have so many favorite moments with mom! I love to chat on the phone with her. We always end up laughing about something the children have done or the day events have brought about. I love to take country drives with her listenting as she shares her heart with me. I love reading the emails she sends me, watching her cook with my girls or cuddle with my toddlers. I love to see her hold hands with my daddy. I just love every moment I am with mom. If I had to narrow it down to one special moment it would be, without a doubt, walking through the gardens with her! Mom and I use to take garden tours each year. The first year we started this, I remember walking through a tree covered path, feeling the breeze blow, and smelling the fragrance of the flowers. Oh, I can still see the vivid colors of the garden in my mind. I desperately wanted to just reach out and walk hand in hand with her but I was nervous to do so in front of the crowds of people that were there that day. Once we got back to the car we talked about all the beauty we saw and I mentioned that I only regretted that we didn’t walk hand in hand through the garden. “I wanted too” I told her, “but I felt odd in front of others.” She had the very same feelings and at that moment we both made promise to each other that if we ever wanted to hold hands or embrace in public we would do so. Since that day we have walked hand in hand through gardens, shops, and parks. Those are my most favorite moments with mom.
With much love,
