My Favorite Momery

In lieu of Mother's Day, I thought I would write about my absolute favorite momery. What is a momery? Your favorite mom memory!

My parents had just gotten a divorce and it wasn't a fun time in our household. My mom moved myself and two sisters into a tiny two bedroom apartment, where my mom and I shared a bedroom for a little bit. We made the best of it and I felt like my mom and I had a sleepover every night. I used to lay in bed and pretend I was sleeping every night until she came into bed later. I got quite attached to sleeping in the same room with her. One night there was such a bad thunderstorm and it was raining really bad. My mom was up doing laundry and ironing clothes while the rest of us were "asleep" in our beds. I remember she came into our room really late that night, (it probably wasn't even really that late, but felt late at the time) and said get up, there is something I want to show you. My mom brought me outside onto the balcony and pointed to a spider web. The way that one of the outside lights was reflecting on this huge spider web, with the rain trickling down it, was magnificent. She looked at me, and said, "Isn't it beautiful?" We sat outside on our tiny little balcony in the rain, and gazed at that beautiful spider web for quite a while. Just me and my mom.

I loved that night. I'm glad she got me out of bed to share that moment with her. It may sound odd, staring at a spider web, but it truly was a magical moment.

Do you have a favorite moment?

I love you, Mama! Happy Mother's Day!!

I love those moments too! It may be something simple, but the moment is magical!

I have a great memory of going out to dinner with my mom and ordering just an appetizer and dessert. It was fun and spontaneous...our little secret!
