Me: "Mom, you probably should drink some water.."
Mom: "That would be great. Thanks..."
So, I knew my place. I fetched the water.
Mom: "Your dad can pick up some petunias for you."
Me: "You mean, dad can just know what petunias to get?"
So, I didn't risk it. I got some petunias. and lilies. and hydrangeas. What can I say? They jumped into the cart.
Mom: "All I want for my birthday is to watch Julie and Julia"
So, I stopped at the video store after picking up the petunias.
Mom: "It would be nice to have Papa Murphy's Pizza for dinner"
So, after the petunias, before getting the video, I got the pizza. (after teaching pilates,) and after making treats for the kids.
So, when I finally got home, I put the tray of petunias on the ground, put in the pizza and watched Julie and Julia with mom for her birthday.
After all, it's not every day your mother is 65 and you get to watch a show on cooking while eating pre-made food.
So, yes, my life is good. I am thankful for the pizza, the movie, but most of all, a mother to enjoy them with.
