college. We got caught in a pretty significant snow/wind storm and the return trip took about an hour longer than normal. Today, I went shopping with Sarina and we got stuck waiting to enter the mall for about 15-20 minutes.
These are the types of situation that would normally frustrate me, but neither one did. Both times Sarina joked, “At least we are together!!!” Yes, we are together. Is my relationship with my daughter really about picking her up/shopping or is it really more about hanging out and enjoying each other. In both instances, we chose to crank music, send out crazy texts (not from the driver!) and just talk to one another. We had a great time.
We always talk about the hurry and the hassle of the holiday season and how we need to slow down. So, let’s slow down and enjoy simple things like being stuck in traffic with your daughter.
