 Yep, that's me.
I spent Sunday night watching the super bowl at my friend, Candice's new home. Now when I say "watching" the super bowl what I mean is that I was in the same room as the 55" inch tv that was displaying the football game. (Now don't jump ahead of me! I'm not jealous of the tv or the new home, or the players who make millions of dollars each season! Keep reading!)
I was paying a little bit of attention to the action on the screen (mostly during the commercials) but honestly, I was really concentrating on the  game of Hand and Foot we were playing. Hand and Foot is a card game that is very similar to Canasta (I'll bet you're glad that I cleared that up, eh?). While we were playing, I was listening to the banter going back and forth between Candice and her mom. It was companionable and fun, teasing and sweet. If was obvious that they were friends and they really enjoyed being with each other.

I like that. I had that with my mom. I miss that. Jealous. Yep that's me.

Your mom raised a wonderful woman - you. And Em is right - you are blessed to have that relationship with her.
