My mom and I have a complicated relationship, and our phone calls on a Sunday often veer into that complicated territory. Which is why I wanted to record for posterity that today my mother said she was consistently amazed by all the things I do and the places I go, and she thought it was fabulous that a kid who came out of such a (socio-economically) poor background could get to where I am. She didn't outright say "I'm proud of you" but she clearly meant it, and it's rare that she ever indulges in straight-up praise, so I am going to enjoy the heck out of it.
