A Smile on my shoulder

Did you ever have one of the "out of sorts" days? Nothing really wrong but you just don't feel like yourself. That is how my day started today. It probably has something to do with the fact that I stayed awake way too late last night working on projects for a craft open house that I will be participating in this weekend. As I woke this morning I could hear the rain pouring outside and I just wanted to hide under the covers. But since that was not an option, I dragged myself out of bed and got ready to face the day. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I drive Kate and Emma, the little girls I babysit, to school. Their mom brings them to my house around 7:30 am and we leave my house at about 8:00 am for school. This morning, while waiting for the time to leave, Emma (who is 4 years old) wanted to draw a picture. I got out the paper, colored pencils and a few stickers so she could "create her project". As I was sitting at my desk, looking out of the window at the pouring rain, thinking about how tired I still was, she came over to me and climbed onto my lap. She gently placed a smiley sticker on my shoulder and gave me a kiss. She said "That's cause you are my best Mimi." It's amazing how that little gesture changed the whole mood of the day. I kissed her back and said "Thank you my best Emma for making my day so special." I just thought incase you were having one of those "out of sorts" kind of days I would share the smile on my shoulder with you.
Hope this helps to make your day special too.

The magic of children....just a word, or a hug, or a tiny kiss can make your day. You must be so stressed. Take care of yourself my dear friend. You don't want to get sick.
