    I got to spend this past weekend in Cincinnati with my mom. I love being with her. She truly is my best friend. The funny thing is, the very things that used to drive her crazy about my grandma, I now see in her. When I mention this to her, she says that grandma was great and why shouldn’t she be like her. I can’t help but wonder if in another 20 years, my son and I will be having the same conversation.
