Mom's Always Know!

I have had an extremely hard few months with being called as RS president, six kids and other issues.  I have talked to my Mom every day, sometimes twice, asking her for advice, help and just a good listening ear.  She has been the sounding board and the wisdom I have needed.  
My parents got their mission call to Athens, Greece and all of the sudden I missed my Mom.  I know she is not gone yet but our phone calls will be virtually non-existent.  
Sensing that I felt left out and was already missing her. She and my Dad called me and asked if they could fly me out to "help" my mom get all her clothing ready for her mission.  "uh, spending someone else's money on clothes is what I do best."
I leave in 3 days and it couldn't come at a more perfect time!
Moms always know!

What a fun little get away, your parents are so sweet to think of you especially at a time when they are already thinking of a million other things. That is awesome!

Oh I'm so happy for you! You will have so much fun and you deserve it! Mom's are the best, it's so hard being away from them. I decided you never grow up too much to not need your Mom. In fact I think you need them more and more the older you get! They always know what's best.

Moms are great and I especially I love your mom! Enjoy your time. Also, you'll be amazed at how independent you become while she is gone. I know, you already are but it's amazing the resources you can pool when calling mom just isn't an option. :D
