My Witty Mom

The Daily Prompt:

Today you can write about anything, in whatever genre or form, but your post must mention a dark night, your fridge, and tears (of joy or sadness; your call). Feel free to switch one ingredient if you have to (or revisit one from previous trio prompts).

It was a darkish night.  I was rummaging  through my fridge whilst talking to my mom on the phone.  I had just been to a parent/ teachers meeting that day and was telling my mother that the teacher said my littlest daughter is “insanely intelligent” (teachers words not mine.)

I was expecting my mom to say something complimentary and granny-ish…but alas, the words I heard through the phone said.  “I’m so glad one of my grandchildren takes after me.”

I was laughing so much, I had tears of joy pouring down my cheeks.

She is a witty one, that mum of mine.

This is a true story

  1. You must be so proud of that little girl. How great when these little ones make us proud. Tell the little girl I am proud of her and wish to get more beautiful stories of how she is making a difference in the world. Congratulations on your ability to tell a great story in very few words. I am learning from writers like you to say it short but great.

Namaste. My soul honors your soul. I honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honor the light, love, truth, beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
