Spending 14 hours doing anything can be intimidating. Spending that time in a car with my mom….. I wasn’t sure what to expect. What would we talk about? Would we be able to agree on where to stop? Who would control the radio station?
It turned out to be a wonderful, exhausting, roller coaster of a ride. We talked about fun and depressing things in the past. Politics. Something’s we agree upon…. many things we don’t. We stopped at Wendy’s. That wasn’t good for either or us. We talked about the future. The traffic. The weather.
In a few weeks I probably won’t remember anything we talked about. What I will remember is that for 14 hours we just talked and connected.
