This time in Florida is a gift. Sure, it’s not h.o.m.e. Well, it’s not our home. We are guests. Trying to be the best guests we can — both succeeding and failing on a daily basis, I am sure! But I wouldn’t trade this time with my mother — for anything.
We do simple things. Simple things that I will treasure forever.
I snapped this picture a few days ago, while my mom was eating her lunch – after she came home from getting her hair done. See her smile? That’s my mom. When I close my eyes — no matter how many miles away I go — she is with me — with that amazing smile. And her marvelous laugh. And her naughty sense of humor. And that sparkle in her eyes. And her words of love for me. Priceless. I spend every day of my time here in Florida — listening to my mom tell me her stories. [Even the repeats!] …. enjoying her laugh…..adoring her smile…..lapping up the time.
Time. Life’s greatest gift. Remember to spend it well.
I love you mom. #ChooseHappiness365 (184/365)
Ciao for now…..your little girl, Diane
