And here I let down my mask a bit . . .

It is the nature of being human that we go through highs and lows like clouds passing in a sky.

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.

I sooooo know that feeling! My Dh asked me what I wanted them to buy me for Mother's day. Just once, I'd like him to figure it out!

I don't have any wise words, except I understand.

That is so sweet! The other morning my 7 year old brought me a cup of tea in the morning. I was so tired that it sat cold and I felt so bad! I didn't mean to pas back out. I'm gonna have to blog about that this week. The sweet things our kids think of (and nincapoop mommies who fall asleep at their kindness) HEe hee
