Tender Moments

This weekend has had a lot of tender moments.

Here’s the cook of the excellent meal we had for Thanksgiving.  Her and I went shopping on Saturday (her Dad stayed home nursing a bad back) and it was fun getting some new clothes for her.  She takes such good care of us when we come to visit and makes us feel very special in her life, which (of course), we are.  As she is in ours.

Here’s my favorite boy toy with a friend who has been coming over to spend holidays with us for a while.  He brought his girlfriend and her children with, the first time we’d met them.

This guy has a new name – huggy bear.  Nothing like 120+ pounds of love leaning into you, wanting to be petted.

This one wants to sit in your lap so you can tell her how much you love her.  Thankfully her breath isn’t too bad for a dog.

Did we do anything overly special?  No.  We enjoyed each other’s company, relaxed, told lots of stories, did a little shopping, and watched some movies.

I so enjoy visiting with our daughter.  Not every memory has to be special – what’s special is simply being together and spending time with each other before we go back to our regular lives.  It’s special to just visit about the ordinary things of life – jobs, cars, home repairs, and the upcoming holidays.  To simply be part of each other’s life for a few short days.

Word for tomorrow – INTELLIGENCE.  If you prefer to work ahead, see the list for the week under “A Word A Day”.

  1. Great photos! Sounds like you had a wonderful holiday. We enjoyed our family time as well. It is SO great just to be together. The time we have is so precious.

    • It really is precious. That was the biggest reason we moved to Virginia was to be closer to her. I miss living by my sister and mother, but it is wonderful to see my daughter nearly every other month.

  2. What a lovely young woman your daughter has become! It has been such a joy to share in your lives again via the photo challenge this year. Thanks for letting us know about it. Jaimie did a lot of oohing as she looked at the photos of the dogs. She would just love to get in on tall that doggy loving. :)

    • Thanks Jane! She really is lovely and a good person too. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the daily photos and blog posts. I’d forgotten that she’d studied sign language in order to communicate with Jaimie.

      The dogs would love Jaimie back. The mastiffs (Cane Corso’s) are great family dogs.
