Thinking of My Daughter

I’ve been thinking of my daughter a lot. She is busy being a junior in college, holding office in a sorority and working on group projects for all of her management classes. She lived away all summer so she could keep her job. I miss her. She’s pretty awesome to hang out with.

Even though she and I are very much alike in a lot of ways, we can also be at each end of a very broad spectrum. She is me when I was a young adult. I am me grown up. I understand her because I was her. She will understand me when she is me. Right now, we meet in the middle. We enjoy the middle. I get to visit her tomorrow and spend some time smack dab  in the middle. That makes me very happy.

I wrote this for my daughter Kelsey:

It was my perspective at a moment yesterday. That moment came after I received a phone call from my daughter that started out with “Mom, can I just tell you how excited I am that I get to see you soon?”. So tomorrow, if you need us…you can find us in the middle.


About finefrugality

I am a wife, mother, business owner, farmer, foster parent, retired probation officer and so much more. :-) I love to save money any way I can. I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.

    Awesome. One of my fondest memories of my mom was a time I dropped by her house unannounced when I was about 26 or 27. She saw me when I walked in the door and her face just lit up. I love her and I appreciate her. Thanks for inspiring me to think of that moment.
