Mondays with Mom: First Installment

Mom & MeWell, hello there! My name is Marcia, or as Amy’s friends used to call me: “Amy’s Mom.”

At the risk of sounding cheesy I will tell you that Amy and I have always been close, even though now she’s an adult, married and we live hundreds of miles apart – she’s my “Little Girl Child,” or LGC – my pet name for her.  Well, recently LGC informs me that she wants me to be part of her website, and contribute fairly regularly. [Groan] My initial reactions were:

  1. I’m not creative or all that interesting, and,
  2. I’m always behind in doing my own stuff without getting involved with LGC’s stuff.

But I have always found it nearly impossible to deny her requests when said request is within reason…that’s a mom thing. So here is my first entry: do ordinary things with someone you enjoy being with.

One of my cherished memories was over 30 years ago: planting petunias with my dear friend, Diane…but I don’t have a picture of that memory. The attached picture was taken recently when LGC and hubby were visiting us – we were cooking, an ordinary thing.

Often times the memories one cherishes are of ordinary things. Take a picture, it might become a cherished snapshot of your time together.

    Love this new feature! In response to reaction #1, I have learned that some of the mundane, ordinary things we do can often be completely unfamiliar to other people. So don’t worry about sounding uncreative or boring- you might be surprised by what you can teach others!

    I totally agree! So I have to include this quote that I keep on my bathroom mirror that seems to go along with this topic quite nicely:
    “It isn’t the great big pleasures that count the most; its making a great deal out of the little ones.” -Jean Webster
    Thanks for the post… a great reminder!
