She said 'sorry'

Last night for the first time I can remember in a very long time, my mother apologised for getting mad at me. I had gone back to my room, silently fuming and very sore about the scolding (which I have to admit was slightly warranted), when five minutes later, she knocked on my open door. She stepped in, twisting her T-shirt in front of her sheepishly and saying, "I've come to apologise. I shouldn't have spoken to you in that way."

She then went on to explain that she had been unfair for jumping down my throat in that way, and then further gave me much more credit than I deserved in my actions to her.

Her apology left me very much softened and gave me a huge desire to burst into tears. I am dumbfounded and don't know what to think.

Maybe she realises you have grown up? So should not scold so much?

Yes, when my dad apologises to me I always start crying too. Still figuring out why I cry though.
