Not sure how that happened, or where I was when it did. Probably driving carpool. And doing laundry. And volunteering at school. And cooking (what a waste of time that is.) And trying to quit smoking. Any millions of things mothers do.
I would tell my younger self to pay attention more. Be in, as they say, the moment. The laundry, the toys, the dust, all of it can wait. But I didn't hear that part very well, at least not until later. Sometimes we can make the rules for our lives. And that is a gift.
How far that little candle throws his beams.So shines a good deed in a weary world.
To our good deed-doer, Happy Birthday. The Baskin & Robbins ice cream clowns await.
