Real Simple magazine just sent me this Daily Thought. I loved it and wanted to share.
Ever give a gift that is a complete home run? My Mom does that…a lot.
After lugging my bags up to my bedroom in my parent’s house this past Christmas, I found a beautifully wrapped present waiting for me on my bed.
Once settled, I brought the gift downstairs to open it with my parents. I figured it was extra special since it seemed to be patiently waiting for my arrival (and not under the tree). Standing together I opened the gift and my eyes filled with tears. It was the most perfect framed quote for this time in my life.
Although tearful, it was such a joyful moment because it showed me that my Mom understands exactly where I am in life. And who doesn’t want their Mom to understand what they are going through?
This career transition has been unbelievably exciting and utterly terrifying at the same time, and I take a lot of comfort in knowing that she understands.
I look at it everyday. I sure am on my way…
