Why I love my mom
I was on the phone with her the other day and the topic came up and I expressed to her that I was an atheist. She asked why and I explained. She was totally accepting (as always) and said that as long as I know why in my heart, then I can't be wrong. Even she admits the hypocrisy in religion and states the only reason she is still a Christian (non-practicing) is out of hope that she is right. She took the other side of Pascal's wager.

RE: Why I love my mom
I love my mom, really both my parents, because they have always been there for me, even during what I refer to as my "asshole" phase from my mid-teens until I graduated college.

I'm not one to worry about things as things will happen whether I worry about them or not, but my parents aging is a thought that sometimes stops and gives me pause. My dad is 71 and my mom is 66 and they are in great health but that can all change quickly. My worst nightmare is my parents inevitable infirmity.

Great mom. Smile Cherish her always, because when they're gone the loss is always a reminder that there's no more time, to make up for what we wish we'd said or done to make more time for them in our lives.

Glad to hear that your mother is so accepting. Good for her.
