i'm planning to go visit my daughter this friday. the plan is for me to bring down some boxes, help her pack up some of her dorm, and then go out and play. a little shopping, lunch, and maybe even a movie. we're both looking forward to it.
it reminds me of when i was a young adult and my mom and i would get together for a whole day. how i always looked forward to those times. they were like a mini vacation... a day's reprieve from the daily grind. but it was more than that. it was time with my mom, which i also enjoyed tremendously.
thanks mom for those days; for the time we spent together and the fun we had shopping and eating. and for nurturing my love for movies. those days enabled me to offer the same thing to my daughter. it's a wonderful tradition to pass on - maybe for many generations.
i'll be thinking of you this friday as dani and i enjoy our day.
