The Legacy of a Mother
Driving for hours on end always affords me time to think, uninterrupted. As I was driving back to San Miguel a couple of weeks ago, the memories of the previous six weeks were floating through my mind's eye. Spending time with the family was a highlight. As was spending time with special friends. Of course, there is NEVER enough time to see everyone. I always feel bad when I have to tell people that I'm heading back and can't get together this trip. One of the things I was thinking about on the drive back is the fact that I've been a mother for 52 years now! Holy moly..... Then a Grammy for 23 years to seven "wonders of the world". It was super duper that I was able to spend so much time with the five grand kids in Texas. One of the purposes of the trip was to be there for Jessica's 23rd birthday and Christopher's 16th. It happened. What you don't know when you plan these trips are the little things that will happen that make you smile each time you think of them. The "little moments" of life!
