Simple Pleasures - Talking With Her





Last night we talked about men, but the topic doesn't matter. Talking with her—heart-to-heart, mother-to-daughter, friend-to-friend—is a simple pleasure I never take for granted.

Occasionally, when she was a toddler, my brain would go into overload while she learned everything about everything, talking 90 miles a minute, asking why, what, who and how.

But these days, I cherish every moment of our conversations, grateful beyond words that God chose me to be her mom.



Linking to Dayle's (i.e., my wombmate's) Simple Pleasures.

  2. That's one of my favorite pics of her when she was a little girl. I labeled her "Miss Exuberant," if I remember correctly, and boy was she ever. Soooo adorable and full of life. I agree. Having heart-to-heart talks with a daughter is one of life's greatest pleasures.

  3. Gayle,
    I will second that whole heartedly! Nothing is quite as wonderful as talking with a daughter - on any subject.

  5. I was never blessed with a daughter, which I regretted for soooo many years. Then(!!!), when I least expected it, God blessed me with a precious daughter-in-law - more precious than gold!
    Your daughter is incredibly lovely ... I'm warmed, seeing your picture!

  8. You are both lovely ladies! I love this post, and look forward the days when I will share that camaraderie with my own girls! In the meantime, I'll try to "enjoy" those nine million questions! ;)

  9. Oh Gayle, I agree!! I could chat with my girls for hours on end and never grow tired of it.
    A marathon stream of consciousness suits me as much as a deep heart to heart.
