30 Days of Thanks – 2013 -Day 19

Today I’m thankful for those unplanned minutes that I have with Maya where we can just enjoy each other’s company.  I got a call from her preschool today that she wasn’t feeling well, and complaining that her head hurt.  I wrapped up work as quickly as I could, cleared it with my supervisor and headed over to pick her up. She saw my car pull into the parking spot and I could see her face light up from the play yard.  As I got out, she ran from where she was to the fence, yelling, “Mommy!”…we gathered her things, came home, ate an early dinner and watched some Sesame Street (an old favorite).  It was only an extra hour and change, but those minutes were precious and filled with sweet kisses, cuddles, and “I love you”s from my clinging girl.  And for that, I am grateful.

I'm 42, a remarried mom of an 8 year old girl and a toddler son, a teacher, and a writer. People tell me I tend to be brutally honest and ...tell it like it is, so I had hoped to use this outlet to keep me sane while I got used to my new life as a stay-at-home Mom back when I was home with my daughter....it worked. And it's been therapeutic through the end of a marriage and the emergence of me...
