Socks and roses and french fries...

I wish that more people could understand how important moments like this one between my mama and my brother are. Just those times when you put your elbows on the table and talk about french fries, or sit on the couch watching an episode of Golden Girls for the 20th time and talk about the roses in the yard, or spend ten minutes in Target laughing together over all the silly holiday socks on the rack. It's not the big moments that were planned to the nth degree, or how much you bought someone, or what kind of esteem and notice that you can bring yourself by doing something for someone. The moments that mean the world are the simple ones. I would give anything to talk to my mama again about socks and roses and french fries.  I will also be forever grateful that while she was here, we did a lot of just that.

  1. I totally agree. It is the little, everyday things that are most important, and unfortunately, all too often overlooked. I miss my mom and dad, and the precious moments we had together.
