Visitors & Apple Pie
Lucky is the daughter whose mother will travel 1800 miles across the country to visit her grandkids. My beautiful mother drove to Maryland and then flew down to North Carolina to stay with us for two weeks. We had a great time and did a lot of memorable things, including watching Obama vote on Tuesday. (I presume he voted for himself, but he took such a long time filling out the ballot it made me wonder if he was having second thoughts...)
At the end of the two weeks, my mom's husband Terry showed up with his camper trailer and made us all the most delicious omletes I've ever had.
How is one to show gratitude to so much kindness and generousity? How do you thank someone enough for coming so far to see you? How do you express deep and sincere love to the person to whom you owe your life?
Naomi watches the process.
Full tummies, and happy people.
Come to North Carolina, and I'll make you an apple pie, too!
Thank you, Mom for coming and making so many memories with us.
