NaBloPoMo writing prompt for today is "tell us something you learned from someone else".
I am learning each day from Kate how to watch my beautiful girl grow and most of all learning patience. That's a new concept for me. Patience to wait and watch for when she needs me. In those in between moments when she wants to fly, I am learning to get to know her on her time. Learning how to be there the way that she needs me to be. Trying to not feel hurt when she wants her privacy, that's a big one. We went shopping this weekend and when she asked me to come in the dressing room because she wanted my opinion, I smiled. It was like the angels sang. My daughter is teaching me each day how to be a better mom. By the way, if you like coconut shrimp...you have to try this recipe.
Raw shrimp dipped in flour then a beaten egg..
