She drove to the store to pick up a few things. I had written ‘Hydrangeas’ on the list, but she spotted daffodils and instinctively knew which to buy.
Daffodils are displayed on the table.
I have this thing about pretty water.
When I see a pretty bottle of water, I purchase a couple. One for her room, even though she’s not normally here, and the other one rests on my bedside table.
I call it my ‘weekend’ water bottle.
Today, as my daughter was leaving for the store I said, “If you see any pretty water bottles at the store, grab us a couple.”
When she returned home, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the water bottles she had chosen. I think she outdid mine.
But, you know? I can’t help but feel like something really good happened here. She knows what a pretty water bottle is, and she knows what to look for.
This shade of emerald green sparkles from across the room as the light hits it.
She’s on her way to a beautiful, adult life my darling. Even with the water bottle.
