I'm grateful for the relationship I have with my daughter. We can laugh, and snark, and laugh some more. We went looking for an area rug for her living room tonight (none found). I'd called her in the a.m. and asked her if she wanted to go look tonight and the happiness in her voice that I wanted to shop with her made me grin and my heart go "smoosh". People avoid shopping with her (me included) because she wears you out by the sheer number of places she likes hit, then backtrack, lather-rinse-repeat. However, she has been seeking me out to shop with her for her new place and this time I'm doing it with her. The joy it gives her just increases mine and the here there and everywhere becomes worth it.
