I’ve always said I must have done at least two things right in life to be blessed with such wonderful children. They’re thoughtful, very considerate and always go that extra mile just for me. Let me share something beautiful that just happened this evening…
I was in my study catching up with some creative work when they knock on the door and ask to come in. I’m wary. They usually come to me if they’ve had a fight and need intervention or they’ve done something wrong and need to tell me about it straight away. So I have my eyebrows raised and I’m waiting for them to start talking.
Dream Girl: Mum, we need a loan
Me: For what, darling? Do you need to buy something?
Googlee: YES MUM! We need to get some money and we need to buy something for you.
Dream Girl: SSHHHHH! Don’t tell her!
Me: Tell me what? What’s going on?
Dream Girl: Awww man! Now we’ll have to tell her.
Me: Right…. I’m waiting
Googlee: (looking sad with big puppy dog eyes) You seeeeee Mummmyyyyyy…. we don’t have a Daddy to go and ask for money so we need to ask you because….
Dream Girl: That’s right! Because we want to buy you a Mother’s Day present!
I have my waterworks threatening to spill over as I relate this. I’m truly blessed. And I have ‘loaned’ them the amount they asked for. I just can’t wait to see what they get for me. Watch this space…. 🙂
