Ali brought home a thankfulness list from church last Wednesday night and proudly presented it to me, asking me to read it in its entirety.
I suppose she thought I would be relieved and happy to come in fifth on her list of thanksgivings, and I suppose I am. It’s not like I’ve gotten to be a stellar Mom lately. And, at least I didn’t come in last, behind “other, other, other, iPad, Minecraft” like her beloved godmother Amanda did.
But my favorite, by far, was my mom’s spot on the list.
She came in second place. She is pretty awesome and all and she totally deserves at least second.
But she came in second – right behind “Grandmama’s Laszanya.”
Should you be such a good cook that your food is better than you are?
It can’t be a bad thing.
