Because I fell, my mommy came to visit. She brought some cream for Kian's face(he ran into a table this morning), and some lunch for me. We had a very good visit, eating and talking theology and faith. I enjoy deep conversations especially ones that challenge me. My mother and I do not agree entirely and I think we both stretch each other in good ways. Thankfully now that I'm grown we're able to disagree and not have it turn into a fight. Then again, that probably has a lot to do with the fact that I'm no longer challenging her authority.
Part of the reason why it was so good to see my mom is that she's been super busy recently. I've been having a very hard time adjusting to this. In the past, she's talked to me everyday on the phone, but now when I try to get ahold of her she's out. But not only did I get to see her today, but we held Kian's birthday party at her house on Saturday. It was very nice to see both of my parents and Steve's family. Unfortunately, my sisters and his brother couldn't be there, but we had a lovely little party. My parents gave Kian a large dragon that all three kids are enjoying. Surprisingly enough, Kian can now say dragon, quite clearly I might add. I am so thankful for my parents(and Steve's) and for all the time they spend with us. Our lives are much enriched by their presence in them.
