Ever since my daughter has taught me to make a cup of coffee, using the pour over method, it has become a meaningful part of my day. I get so memorized by the pouring part, I have overflowed my cup, and catch myself drinking more coffee. I purchased my favorite ground coffee off eBay, to start using my coffee maker again, but the seller sent me whole bean instead of ground. Owell, just gonna haveta do an entire can of pour overs!
We are flying to Missouri tomorrow. That is where my daughter’s boyfriend lives. He came here at Christmas, so it’s her turn to go there. I was suckered into this trip, but I’m coming around, and am almost excited about it. I don’t have good memories of traveling during my marriage to her father. It was always stressful, but it doesn’t have to be that way now.
I told myself from the very beginning, I would do this for my daughter. That made it easier to accept because I would do anything for her. As time rolled by, I would ponder the trip, and pull positives from it. I’m going to think of it as a mini getaway, a change of scenery, or my first plane trip since my Cancer journey. She will be with her boyfriend most of the time, so I will have a lot of me time. I’m going to work on my book that I started before Cancer.
We are packing today, and it’s very quiet as we do so. I hope she feels my light heart from across the hall. As Mother’s part of our job is to take stress away from our child’s life. That has been my mission anyways. She continually takes the stress out of mine. Even to travel.
