The look on my mother's face...priceless
Monday, November 26, 2012
I decided to go back home for Thanksgiving because I was missing my mom. She didn't know I was coming and hadn't seen me since February of this year. So I arranged to stay with my sister and we decided I would surprise mom.
I pulled in about 5:00 and rang the doorbell. When she came to the door she had a strange look on her face and when she figured out who I was she was so shocked. She wasn't just shocked to see me at her door, she was shocked to see me, well less of me.
You might think this isn't much, but you have to know this. My mom wears about a 4/6. She thinks everyone bigger than her is fat. She isn't one to give compliments or praise. So when her face lit up like a flood light and she told me how wonderful I looked....it was amazing!
Truly, her face lit up and her complimentary words were well worth the 8-9 hours (one way) I spent in the car driving to see her.
