Well, my best girlfriend because my husband Doug and my Dad are my best friends too.
I am so lucky that they are all right here with me on this journey to create 365 apples. None of them told me I was crazy, none of them has ever doubted me in my quest. But, my Mom is my mom and my girlfriend and it’s a bit different – and very, very special. She is there for me whenever I need a sounding board or a pep talk. She is there for me cheering me on and helping me come up with ideas. She has also always known when to push me out of the nest and since we are so close (unfortunately not in miles but in spirit) she has had to tip me over that edge over and over and over in my life. I’m just so lucky that she’s also always been there to break my fall.
We were talking this afternoon and like most conversations we have in the late afternoon, I was bemoaning the fact that I had no idea what to create for the day. I think I may be getting to be a bit of a bore on the topic so thank goodness it’s my Mom who hears my frustrations and not all of you! So, today I was wondering what to create and she suggested a bird’s nest – the suggestion has been floated before but I’ve never gone with it even though I love the idea. So we laughed and we said goodnight – and she wondered what I would end up creating for her to see first thing in the morning when she signs on to The Feeding Edge for her “Daily Apple”
Won’t she be surprised that I used her idea!
