I’m truly lucky that my grown daughter lives just 25 minutes away. I do my laundry once weekly at her place. I can’t even imagine going to the laundromat and having to wear a mask, so I am grateful to have another place. Plus, I have to say I am more grateful to spend time with my daughter and her fabulous boyfriend of two years.
Each week the three of us go out to dinner. Our latest and greatest: Malibu Beach Grill in Port Orange. My daughter and I split a filet and scallops wrapped in bacon. I know what you’re thinking ‘really good food for your diet.’ To top that off, I had a couple of sippy drinks, too. I’m down 15 pounds now, just FYI.
In the midst of laughter and conversation, her boyfriend said something about being in another dimension. You know I love that! Hehehe. I shared that I had to come up with an idea for my blog and then told a cute little story. I had a reading this past week with an elderly woman who had many health issues – mainly several back surgeries. After the reading, her daughter came in to assist and we all went to the porch. I noticed a car parked in a tenant’s spot. I mentioned it, but let it go. They were waiting for someone else to get out from their reading. A few minutes later I suggested they move the car. Her daughter went to do it, and I said to the woman, ‘I wonder if the tenant is on her way.’ We chuckled. Sure enough, seconds later the tenant pulled into her spot. We chuckled again. I love that!
Somehow the conversation moved to talking about other parents. My daughter shared a story about her co-worker and her mother. And then my daughter said she told her co-worker and I repeat: ‘My mom’s waiting for me at home right now and it’s Friday night.’ We roared. Did I mention we were in our own private room? They know us there. LOL
Finally, before we left, I used the lady’s room, which was near our table. On the way out, I was met at the door by a male employee with a garbage bag in hand wanting to go inside. I said there was someone else in there. Back at the table, as to not miss a beat, my daughter’s boyfriend said, ‘in Spirit?’ The comment went right over my head. ‘In the bathroom,’ he said. We laughed. Could a mother not wish for anything more perfect? Did I mention my daughter sees Spirit and is a medium, too?
You know, sometimes, we just have to let loose and have some fun – laugh it up.
Guess what? It’s Saturday. You still have time!
Many Blessing of Peace and Love!
