Today I do not have to go to work. To honor the veterans, mom came over, and today we will visit the army. The Salvation Army, that is! In all seriousness, today is a great day to appreciate the freedom we have, and the high price at which it came.
Last night, as I was showing my mom different things that are new in our house since she was here last and my latests crafts and whatnot, I remembered she hasn't read our adoption profile yet. Of course, she was excited to read it!
After she was finished she said, "Wow, who are these people?" (In a good way, lol).
Herb says, "You like it? Does it make you want to give us your baby?" Because, of course, that is the test of a good profile.
Mom laughs, and then a light bulb clicks in Herb's head. "I guess you already did give me your baby."
Mom says, "Yeah, my first born, no less!"
It was such a simple conversation, but at that moment I felt so treasured by the two people who love me the most in this world.
Having mom here is always such a joy, and I can't wait to make her a grandma - she's going to be a great one!
