Yesterday was my son's birthday (his sister's, too). I called them both just to tell them that I love them and catch up on their lives. My chat with Jill was too short.I called her when I was still open, and, of course I was interrupted too many times to actually talk.
My talk with Jeff was better, since the store was closed. He was interrupted several times by giggly little girls. That was sweet interruptions, though. They wanted to go to the store to buy their Daddy a present for his birthday. Children need give us nothing to make our hearts soar with love. Just the fact that they want to give us anything is more than enough.
Jeff shared the most wonderful story with me about Maya. She wanted to give her Daddy a card, but she is only 5 and can't spell. So, she asked her Daddy if he was good at not remembering so that he could help her make the card. He was so proud as he told me this.......... and I was so proud as I listened. My kids are really good parents and that makes me feel like I accomplished the most wonderful thing in the world!
