We're trying to decide on our next international travel destination. My mom goes with us when we travel. She rooms with my son. Everybody is in heaven.
Yesterday, I texted my mom and asked her if she wanted to go to Thailand with us this fall. She kept sending me these short responses that were basically different ways of saying no. When she texted me back, "Don't feel it" I realized I wasn't getting anywhere with her. I'm not use to that. Actually, it's pretty unacceptable. So I called. She kept saying she was scared of terrorism and I kept giving her reasons not to be. Right before my phone died I was like, momma, fear is not of God, it's of the devil. Ain't that in the bible? We both hollered laughing because the bible is not my thing, but it's totally her life. Then she was like, you bringing up The Word, I'mma keep on saying no so you can keep quoting the bible. 😂 I was like, what "stripture" is that? I know it's in The Word. Died laughing. Then my phone died. I was like, boooooo!--interrupting my laughs with my momma. Hmph. Bummed.
When I got home and charged my phone, she had texted me. Our exchange made me smile.
I think I'm winning her over.
