My oldest daughter T and I had a mother-daughter lunch Saturday. It was wonderful.
As they get older and their children get older they have so much going on in their own lives with their own families it's difficult to have sharing moments so we set some aside. We had a really good time doing absolutely nothing.
We chose a place and met for lunch (hitting the buffet) and as we ate slowly and conversed a lot we shared laughs and stories, catching up with each other and other family members.
We had a "memory" I love that, I wrote a story once about my growing older with all my memories and being satisfied with that and wanting for others to have the same. I'm still collecting them, memories I mean.
The story is to long to post here but I meant every word of it and am so grateful for what is most precious to me - those memories, and am excited to keep adding to the little scrap book in my mind.
My children when young were special and now that they are no longer children they are special still and every memory is precious.
Make those moments happen! Don't wait for them.
