One Of Those Days

Ever have one of those days? You know the kind I'm talking about. The kind where nothing goes as planned and you feel like you are pulled in a thousand different directions. Not a terrible day, but you know....just one of those days. Well, I'm sure you can tell where I'm going with this...I had one of those days today. It had to do with me and Emily. It just seemed like I couldn't do anything to please her, and to be honest, she didn't do a lot to please me either. I describe her as my determined, sometimes sassy child. I love her to the ends of the earth, but I can tell you, she has her own way of doing things. She gets so frustrated trying to make me understand what she is saying, that sometimes I can't even see the sweet child that she can be.
As rough as the day started, it got better real fast this afternoon. We went to our neighbors house and her nephews were over playing. The oldest is around Emily's age and boy, they can just have the best time. The adults were talking, but I was watching Emily and Brian play. I'm not quite sure what happened, but I could see that slowly Brian was about to cry. He just looked at Emily and she just looked at him(me still not knowing what was wrong). I saw a big tear roll down his face, and then I saw Emily ever so sweetly wipe it away. Whatever was wrong, she wanted to comfort him. As a mother, I was so very proud of her.
She is one of the loves of my life, and I'm so glad she's mine.

  1. Yes Emily is determined, sassy, and opinionated. She can also be very loving and compassionate. I think that is a wonderful mix! She's a great kid and I'm proud to know her! Love ya! Have a great weekend.
