My mom…my rock. She is the one I call 13 times or more a day, often just to simply hear her voice, to tell her that funny thing the girls said or to just chat about the days events. I often think back over my life and the relationship I’ve had with my mom. It’s often been one of openess, communication and connection. Now in my own season of motherhood there is a yearning to learn as much as I can about her, know her deeper and take in all the stories I can. I look forward to the evenings her and my dad come over to eat a meal and connect with us. I look forward to the moments of driving down dirt roads with her talking about dream homes. I look forward to sitting at the table over a cup of coffee and talking about our moments in North Carolina. I look forward just to be with her!
