My grown up daughter who lives in California emailed me to make sure I was home yesterday before lunch time as something was scheduled for delivery. I figured she was going to send me something like the extremely cool fresh fruit bouquet all full of berries my son sent me for my birthday last year which they hand deliver.
You can’t see our driveway from the house, but I heard something drive up it (it’s steep) and went downstairs, opened the garage daoor, and there was my daughter!
Talk about surprised!!!
She works for a company that sends her all around the country to rig lights in hotels and convention centers, and they had sent her to work at Foxwoods in CT about 2.5 hours from here, so she booked her return flight a few days late so we could spend time together.
So I’m feeling very loved, to say the least!
For those of you who have teens at home, I have to add that this was the kid who spend most of her high school years seething in her room with the door slammed shut issuing out only from time to time to tell us how much she hated us!. SInce growing up she’s turned into a real friend. Calls me all the time. Even went on a vacation with me somewhere boring to her just to keep me company. It’s quite the transformation, but she’s really grown up a great deal over the past decade and I’m immensely proud of her
