Happy MomE Day!

When I was going through my divorce almost ten years ago, I traveled up to the mountains to talk to my Dad.  I didn't know how to tell him that I wanted
to leave my marriage.  I didn't know what he would say.  Would I be 
letting him down?  It took me a long time to begin speaking the words
that would form into the dilemma I was now in.  I cried a lot and he listened
and waited patiently until I composed myself.

And then he offered two bits of wisdom to me.
One is relevant to this Mother's day.

He said: 
"Enid is a special woman that I love with all my heart.  
She brings me peace and loves me.  
She helps me to be better than 
I am and loves me when I am not.
She is a GOOD woman."

As he was talking about her he was choked up with emotion
and I realized that this is what I wanted in my life.

She is so kind and loving.  I know first hand
what it feels like to be loved by her and
am grateful that I can call her MomE.
