Just when you need it....a gift.

Let's cut to the chase. I'm not a perfect mom, nor would I ever confess to be. And come to think about it, is there a such thing? Perhaps. But it ain't in this house, folks.  Some days (like ah-hem, today) this momma can really have her buttons pushed.  On an already week of "issues"...we'll refer to them as, because who needs to hear someone else's long list of woes that turn your mind to mush....my toddler woke up with her game face on.  And by game face, I mean - let's test mom as far as I can today with my toddler tantrums, fit outbursts, temper slapping, I've had to sit in a chair too many times, attitude. 

But then, out of the blue, a dear friend sends out a message on facebook. 
Yep.  Just when you need it. 
 
It's the drop of drool getting ready to take it's plunge as it slides down her cheek.......
It's that footprint that never sits still and makes pitter-patter sounds across our floors....
It's the ten little toenails with scraped off toenail polish on them.....
It's the tiny soft hands that are tucked up under so tightly.....
...that makes me realize today is, indeed, a gift.
