Today was a bad day at work…. running errands, grocery shopping, loads of laundry, dinner and general care of 5 children and one adult, but there was a small light at the end of the day.
As I lay there on the big bed with one child cuddling near me, her sobs subsiding just because, for that moment, she really felt like someone cared and someone was going to stick around. Another child laying on the other side of me curled up in a ball – finally, CALMLY breathing and taking a minute to realize, that no matter how mean the kids are at school here in PA, the best parts of Utah are in the same house as he is, and the youngest laying next to his sister and on my arm, cuddling with her to make her feel better – I realized at that minute of calm and overwhelming family love that I needed that moment – just as badly as they did – maybe more so.
And it was that one thing, that small time, that made this day one of the best I’ve had.
