Family is a beautiful thing!

Last evening our daughter (who graduates from law school in three weeks) stopped overnight on her way to an immigration hearing for a client she has been working with in the law clinic. We went out to dinner and has a wonderful time, talked till almost midnight. I got up and fixed her favorite pancakes (I enjoyed my Multi-Grain low fat waffles and no sugar syrup). She is in the hearing now and we won't hear anything until after 5:00... another 2-3 hours. She is working to get asylum for a young woman who left Africa after a series of horrible incidents. I am so proud of the young woman she has become and of the relationship we have. If it took those awful teen years and shouting matches to get here, the price was small indeed.
She is my best friend, the one who though she is a mixture of her father and my mother, understands me better than anyone, challenges me when I need it, supports me when I'm low and loves me maybe as much as I love her. What a blessing I have been given.
