Big One went out this morning to plant trees. This is a volunteer activity and she has done it several times. She planted 13 trees last week and almost 100 seedlings today.
She is ‘out and about’ these days since she recently passed her driving test. This causes me a lot of worry from the time she leaves home until she returns. I’m told it gets easier over time.
When she finished the tree planting today, she forgot to call and tell me she was on her way home so I didn’t know they finished later than plan. When she walked in, I was ready to ask where she was, why she didn’t call, why she was late, and if she knew that she had worried me.
I couldn’t get the words out though because she was holding a beautiful bouquet of flowers to give me for Mother’s Day. Oh Big One, you are growing up.
