My girls are quite the students. They really exceed my expectations at every turn. They are smarter than I can possibly understand. They have such tender, compassionate hearts. They are wonderful students and friends. I am inspired by them daily. It is becoming more and more of a reality that they will soon leave home and start the next portion of their lives. That thought reaches up and catches me off guard often these days.
The girls have been working so hard, the school work load, taking up a new sport, developing friendships, and trying to enjoy a little fun. The way things have been going, not much time for fun. So I decided to surprise them. When I picked them up from school on Friday, I told them the big surprise.
We made a quick trip to OKC for the Taylor Swift concert. It was a last minute purchase of a sold out concert. We literally sat in the very TOP row. I don't think a single seat was vacant. It was wonderful. The concert was fabulous. The time with my girls, even more fabulous!
We stayed at a hotel downtown, went to see the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial, something I have wanted to do for so long. It was very moving. I didn't realize that my girls had not learned about this tragedy before our trip. It seems like it was just yesterday. The memorial was special.
I hope that this weekend is one that my girls will remember for many years to come.
I am so blessed to be their mom...
