I'm so touched!
This morning I was watching the Regis & Kelly show and Kelly's guest host was Olympic Snowboard Champion, Shaun White. Anyway, they started talking about Halloween and he talked about some of his costumes as a child and thanked his mom for making them♥ For a moment, I got a little sad thinking back on the days when my boys were little and how much fun and excitement filled not only Halloween, but every holiday and how those days are gone....just sweet memories.
I wanted to remind all parents of young children to cherish each and every day they have because they have absolutely NO CLUE how quickly they will fly by. I started wishing I could do some things over. I wished I could go back and read to them more, cuddle with them more, and play with them more. My inner critic was rearing her ugly head again except THIS time she was judging my abilities as a Mom and usually she just picks on my appearance and artistic abilities :)
Well............then the most absolute, wonderful thing happened! I came back to work from my lunch break and these flowers were waiting for me!! I didn't know who had sent them!? I rarely get flowers!!!
I can count on one hand the number of people who know what I've dealt with this past week so I really wasn't sure who had taken the time, care and concern to let me know they were thinking of me today. Guess what.........it was my SON!
I guess I DID do something right as a young mom after all! I raised a beautiful, kind-hearted soul and I love him so much. Thank you Ryan♥
