When I picked Flora up from school today, I had to sit in my car for an extra minute or two to pull myself together. I’ve got a serious case of the November blahs. Add an exhausting day at work, a busy commute and I had a small case of the sads by the time I hit the school.
I peeked in the window where the kids were playing. I love watching Flora when she doesn’t know I’m watching her. It gives me insight into how she sees the world.
I waited at the door and she soon came running to give me the biggest hug.
I really needed that.
As she was getting her stuff on, she handed me a piece of paper.
I made this for you mama.
For those who don’t have kids learning to write and draw right now, it’s a card with lots of hearts. It says “Mom” on the front and the back.
I almost teared up in the hallway of the school.
I thanked Flora for her card. I told her it was just what I needed. And it really was.
I have an awesome kid. I want to be like her when I grow up.
