We went out to lunch at Red Robin, then to Lily Nails to get Spa Pedicures *ahhh!* :), and then we went to the movies and saw "I Love You, Man" -- (honestly, I thought it was a dumb movie - and a perfect waste of $5.00). blah.
While Sarah and I were at the movies my dad called - but since my phone was on silent (so as NOT to disturb the other 5 people that were in the auditorium with us.... yes 5) I missed his call.
He didn't leave a voicemail.
I called him back as Sarah and I were walking back to my new car.
Me: "Hey dad! you called?"
Dad: "Yes... are you home, or are you two still out-and-about?"
Me: "We're still out, but we're actually heading home... what's going on?"
Dad: "Mom went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond and had a fainting spell so I took her to Urgent Care....."
Me: "WHAT?! What do you mean? Is she okay...?"
Dad: "She's going to be fine... yes, she's okay."
People, you don't understand.... my mom is my bestest friend in the world. If anything were to happen to her, I think I would just about lose all drive to live. I can't imagine life without her. I don't want to imagine life without her.
When mom and dad got home she went to bed. I followed her in her bedroom.
Me: "Mom... you scared me...." *kissed her on the cheek*
Mom: "Hey! It scared me too!" (spunky as ever.... my little Arab! ;)
Me: "You're not allowed to ever do that again... ever..."
Mom: (in her cute, little baby voice) "Otay... I not...." :)
Me: "Good.... or I'll be forced to poke you in the nose..."
Mom: (eyes opened real wide, funny facial expression) "Oooooo....."
Ah! She's adorable... in every way. I'm so blessed! :) I don't deserve such an amazing mother! Thank you, Jesus.
Please pray for my mother. The doctor thinks her pain medication for her hip is too strong, and that it might've caused a minor over-dose to her small body (she's 4'11'').
She's home now... sleeping. As spunky as ever. But we all know how quickly things can change - in the blink of an eye - for life is but a vapor: here today, gone tomorrow.
I love my mother more than anything else in this world.
She Is My Best Friend.
