It always makes me sad when Nathan gets ready to go out of town. I suppose that I get very used to having him by my side and being the team unit and the synergy of being physically near each other.
As much as I miss him though, I know that he is the man that I would like to have my children with, and when those children are grown and they find the one they love, and that they want to spend the rest of their life with, that I would like for them to come and spend time with me, even if it has to be by themselves.
And I miss my mom. I really, really miss my mom, and I cannot even imagine how his mom feels.
It’s almost Mother’s Day. And every mother deserves to have their children nearby on Mother’s Day.
So even though I know that him being away is going to be difficult, I know that his mom gets him on Mother’s Day. And above all that’s something I consider one of the highest levels of importance to me. Plus, I’m 90% positive that I pinky promised his mom he would, certainly, no matter what, be there for Mother’s Day…and let’s be real for a minute: no way am I going to break a promise that I may or may not have sealed with a pinky. At a minimum, I would have made it a pinky promise, because it’s that important. And so, bring on the baths and puppy snuggles and chick flicks.
