Hi there folks!
I haven’t written a personal blog post in a long time. I don’t share a lot about my personal life because that is just the way I am but I did want to write a quick little post about my birthday.
My birthday was April 22nd and I turned 31. My daughter and husband surprised me by filling up my craft room with balloons and streamers. It was very sweet. While my daughter was in school my husband took me on a mini shopping spree to Hobby Lobby where I bought some new fabric.
On the way to lunch at Chipotle my mother called me to wish me a Happy Birthday. For some of you having your mom call you is nothing special. But for me it brought tears to my eyes and I stopping breathing for about 10 seconds. The last time my mother and I spoke to or saw each other was in 2004. It was completely unexpected but I am so very thankful it happened.
We spoke to each other as if we had just spoken to each other yesterday. The years fell away like nothing. Pictures of her face were floating around in my head and I imagined she was right there in front of me while we were having this conversation. It was a short conversation but at the end we both said what I needed her to know and what I needed to hear from her…I love you.
Many more phone calls have taken place since that day and she has even spoke to my daughter (her granddaughter) as well. I am hoping for many more in the future and hopefully we will be able to see each other face to face soon.
Words cannot express how full my heart feels right now. Just wanted to share that with you. Thanks!
