"Bye Mommy"

Today's gift is "bye mommy"!

Wow, usually my gifts come later in the day, but not today.

My daughter started my day off with her own words. 

The girls were waiting for my husband to load the car before they got into the car to go to school.  My daughter was sitting on the sofa in the kitchen which looks outside when the garage door is open.  She was watching his every move.  As soon as she saw he was walking back into the garage to come get them she hopped up off the sofa, walked briskly over to me with a little skip, and SAID, "bye mommy"!!!!!!!

This. is. the. first. time. she. has. EVER. said. this. to. me!!!!

I have gotten "bye" and "mommy" before, but NEVER together, at the same time!!!!

I lit up as bright as our Christmas tree and gave her the biggest kiss and hug.

Just writing about it makes my eyes get teary.  

Thank you sweetie, for such a special gift this morning.

Here are some quotes for today....

  1. What a truly wonderful way to start your day. Your words are always uplifting to me. You are such a great mother. I take so many of the little things for granted, thanks for the prospective. Merry Christmas to you sweet family.
