It has been a year since I have seen my parents. That feels odd to me. I don’t live by my parents but I have been lucky enough to see them multiple times a year . . .up until now. Unfortunately, life just got in the way. Luckily I will be seeing them soon and they are coming to me! I love being able to share my life with them. I have multiple things planned for us to do but really . . . I would be happy just to have them in my home doing nothing but everyday life with me.
I know this will sound crazy but, I also enjoy saving things for them to help me with. Not that I am not capable but there is something nostalgic about the help that I miss. So here are 5 things I am hoping to have their help with while they are here.
- Having my mom help me with some mending projects
- Making Easter dinner together
- Sitting on the couch and having a discussion about everything and anything
- Discussing the best way to keep bugs out of my house (I live in a forest)
- Finalizing taxes and making sure that I checked every box

I understand your thoughts about just wanting to do “normal” things with your parents because I feel exactly the same way! I miss just getting on the phone and chatting with them and helping to make dinner and………….having my Mom help with the mending projects! Well, I’m still here and so glad to be able to help you! Thanks for getting us here so that we can spend time with you and your sister! Life is short! Love you!!
I am so glad that you and Dad were able to come out and spend time with me. I do cherish every moment we get to spend together.
