Knowing She Believes In Me

22 Feb
Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and friends for Five Minute Friday.
This is where we come together writing for 5 minutes without editing or overthinking.
I love this community.

Check out what everyone’s is sharing on What Mama Did here.

Five Minute Friday

I remember all the times growing up that Mom would take me out for time that was just ours. It might be to lunch. It might be shopping for a new outfit. I loved these times with her. It made me feel so special. I had her full attention. 

We talked so much during these moments together. I would tell her about the latest happenings with my friends. I would tell her about the boy I had a crush on. I would talk about the latest book I was reading. I would share my dreams. And she listened. I knew she heard my heart. She offered words of encouragement constantly saying “I believe in you.”

We went for a few years without that face time since she lived so far away. Oh how I missed that time with her. But God is so good. Recently she moved to be closer to us and we are dating each other once more. My heart spilling out all over again. Sharing my dreams. And hearing her say once again, “I believe in you.”

What a precious gift these moments are 
and I will forever be grateful because she listens.
Knowing that she hears my heart.
Knowing she believes in me.

Here are a few more places I’ve shared my heart about my mom.

    Love that idea of dating your Mom- and that you have the opportunity to do it again. Nothing quite like having a Mama who believes in you, is there?!! Love you!

    Those things make such a huge impact on a child's heart, don't they, Wend? My mama lives close now, too, and I would not have it any other way.
