So today I’m in Phoenix. Sun City West to be more precise.
I flew out Saturday to surprise my mom for Mother’s Day. I haven’t done something like that for her before, and it was nice to surprise her.
My mom put up with a lot when I was growing up, and I’m thankful she’s still talking to me. Even expressing that she’s proud of me (though I have come a long way since then).
I have a large number of friends and family (most of them younger than me) who lost their moms early in life and Mother’s Day is a hard day for them. I didn’t want to wonder years from now why I didn’t take the time to fly out and spend some time with my mom when I had it.
And it’s been a nice time so far, and I’ll be here until tomorrow. Thank you, Lord, for mothers, and in particular for mine.
Oh and here’s a #momselfie from yesterday:
