She does know…
The last couple blogs I have been zooming in on how there have been moments lately which have caught me off guard, in honestly the most beautiful way.
I am trying really hard to relish these moments because they are precious. They are rare, but they are there.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays I pick up my daughter from her Dad’s. On the drive I have a group of friends who I call. The calls are short but they are important and it is sometimes it’s the only time I can talk to some of my friends.
I call the people in this group my Tuesday/Thursday night phone call club.
One of the members changed it up and called me on a Friday night. Said friend I have known for almost two plus decades and lives on the other side of the country. So even though my daughter was about to get in the car I kept talking and just let her know who was on the phone.
They bantered back and forth then I let my friend know we needed to wrap it up. I wanted to chat a bit with G about her day.
My friend says… “G do me a favor take care of your Mom. I am far away so I can’t and she means a lot to me and a lot of people ok?”
My sweet daughter grabs my hand and says the following and please know I’m paraphrasing, lol.
“I will. I love my Mom. I know she gave up a lot for me and I will fight for her because I love her.”
Here’s the thing. I know my daughter loves me. What I didn’t know is that she believes I have given things up for her. I didn’t know she realized this. I will be honest it’s a few days later and I’m still surprised.
Why is this important?
Mommas- they see us. They know. They know. How often have you felt deflated or defeated because you felt like they didn’t.
Well.. guess what they do. They really, truly, do.
You’re doing amazing Mommas.
