A daughter is a little girl who grows up to be a friend. ~ Author Unknown
Wait a minute.
That was her, 31 years ago.
She doesn't look anything like that now.
She moved into her very first alone apartment a couple of weeks ago. She's been saying it feels like a hotel room still because it's devoid of 'homey' touches.
So what does Mom do?
I went and bought her several houseplants today. I also told her she can go thru all the boxes and bins down in the storage cupboards in the basement and is welcome to any of the kitschy stuff that's in them. As well as any art work that hits her fancy.
I might even toss in a box of nails.
They grow up and they go 'away'.
But they're forever in a mother's heart, no matter what their age.
