I Miss My Mom

My mom has been away for almost a month and I am really starting to miss her. She will be back in the states later this summer but it is just not the same.
The kids and I love her so much. They really enjoyed having her around and being able to see her and love up on her as often as they wished.

It is so strange to think that at one point I doubted this woman's love for me and weather or not we would ever have a normal mother daughter relationship. The Lord is so good, I am witnessing his faithfulness as he restores the years that the locust has eaten.
My mother and I are building a mother daughter relationship. Ours might not look like the norm but it is what it is. A child getting to know her mom and a mom doing her best to be the mom that her daughter needs her to be. It's not always perfect but it is growing and I am so grateful for the chance to do it again.

I miss you Mom and I can't wait to see you and hold you again come this August.

I agree, what a real blessing to have this opportunity to develop a new relationship with your mom!
