I would’ve done it for several times if I could only profess my love to my crockpot. This marvelous piece of equipment in the kitchen saved me several times now. However, I receive my own mother’s help this time.

Lately, I’m a bit busy. Projects arrive and I had to oversee them. My job was to manage my projects online. Although it’s most convenient, sometimes it makes me ponder. My mother visited us and stayed a few nights with us, and I was so sad because I was busy and can’t spare time to talk to her. When it’s her time to go home, I volunteered to accompany her to the airport despite my busy schedule. I thought to myself that this is the least I can do to her, and so I did, together with my son we bring her to the airport.

On the way home, I realized that  I had nothing prepared for dinner, we were on our way home! While I wanted a home-cooked meal for my husband, he seemed to have an idea of what to eat, take-out. I checked my phone and a message pop up just as I parked in our favorite restaurant. My mother had a text message saying, “Don’t worry about dinner, I prepared beef and broccoli. “Oh, God. Thanks, Mom!
