Daughter called me a little while ago. She went to the thrift shop today, and bought some things she'll need for camp next week, including a swimsuit and flash light. I'm impressed, and grateful that I don't have to purchase them. She continues to run hot and cold. Yesterday she was upset about minutiae. Today, we're having more adult conversations without attempts to manipulate.
I told her about the skunk that's been hanging around the house, and she was interested in my schedule. She wasn't insisting I come rescue her. In fact, she sent me a wonderful text this morning:
"How is your day going? you were right. with your love i would have a good day. thank u mom and god bless you."
It's wonderful to see her acknowledging my support. I haven't wasted my time.
