A Month of Gratitude - Day 6

Monday, December 13, 2010
I am teaching my Hot Daughter to drive, and yesterday was her second lesson. Aside from an inadvertent turn onto a road far larger and busier than she was comfortable with and an unfortunate accident with a now-late squirrel, it's been far less stressful than I would have anticipated.

Historically, it's never been easy between my Hot Daughter and me - we both spent her teen years being angry and hurt. Things are better now, though, especially since we've both adopted the attitude that being right is not nearly as important as being family.

Today I'm grateful to have the opportunity to rebuild my relationship with my Hot Daughter on a foundation of trust, respect and mutual support. Profoundly grateful. Thanks, Baby Girl.

Hot damn! Score one for Boogie! One less Damn Squirrel in the world. I do hope HD and HM are not too traumatized!

So glad. :) (well, except for the skwerl, and some crow somewhere is thankful for that too.)
