There were clouds in my sky this morning for no other reason that just being woman.
I was taking advantage of my mother being here to feed and dress the kids- and stayed in bed.
Then I heard a knock on the door, and in walked my daughter followed by my hubby with a cup of tea and some vanilla wafers!
Brightly - as is her personality - she announces that they are bringing me "coffee" in bed!
"OH! How did you know!?" My heart started to swell! Just what I needed! To know he noticed and he thought of me and he cared!!!
"It was her idea" he says without ceremony when he give me the tea.
I had to wipe that look off my face real quick - because there stood my beaming 5 year old waiting for her accolades . . .which I obliged her. Raving about the tea, the kindness . . the thoughtfulness . . .She bounded away happily.
And really - today I have a lot to be thankful for and happy about. It's beautiful outside - I've got wonderfully thoughtful kids. And my hubby was willing to help my daughter in her mission to bring me tea . . . . that's Great!
But today-today-I just really wanted the tea to have been HIS idea.
