What she'll see when she looks up

When people say, “babies change everything” they are so right. Mostly.
My mother and I have never really been close. There have been times when I really needed her and she was too busy with work or her church. At times she has even suggested that I go to other people for help, so I didn’t expect her to be interested in my pregnancy. To my surprise she was.
Reluctantly I allowed her to be a part of my life and spent some time with her. I started to think that maybe I was important to her.
On November 3rd I called my mother to let her know that my daughter, Leah Rose had arrived.
Work # - No answer.
Cell # - No answer.
I kept calling...
I Gave up.
I called my dad. He was there in fifteen minutes. A few hours later I hear from my mother. She tells me she’ll be there after her vanpool gets her to Pasadena.
But not right away.
She has to go to Bible Talk meeting before she can come see her first granddaughter. I was amazed.
Kellie always first.
Am I ever on her radar?
