Not just another day....

Amidst the mundane days the jewel waits.  That special moment where it takes my breath away.  The jewel could be anything, a kind word, a hug, walking outside to see the spectacular color of the sky, finding my keys, all the kids getting to school on time and safe or just simply a hot cup of coffee in the morning.  I get excited if my favorite show is not in a rerun.  I am a simple gal, it doesn't take much to bring a smile to my face.  The other day was different.

My Friday was hectic, full of mishaps and a deep need to concentrate on the tasks at hand.  On my way to pick up my little ones I just kept going over and over all the adult pressures in my head.  I was "what if.." to death.  All I could do is growl. Growl loud.

I walk into the door to a chaotic ocean of kids, backpacks, and NOISE.  In the sea of kids I started my terminator scan looking for the signature life forces of my brood.  Their auras are quite lovely by the way.  In mid scan, I hear the voice "MOMMMY! YOU'RE HERE!"  Ahhh a warm welcome, my heart is a bit softer.  He comes running with his arms wide open and a big smile on his face.  So handsome and sweet my son is growing into a lovely person. 

"Mommy, I have something for you.  Close your eyes." 

"What do you have?"

"Mom, just close your eyes, it's a surprise!"

"Ok." So I close my eyes.

"Here Mom, you can open your eyes.  I got you some jewelry"

I open my eyes to the most beautiful piece of jewelry I possess.  I can't think of a prouder mom at that moment.  My boy knows me so very well, and although I know it is one of his favorite characters too, he is an excellent padawan learner.

Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.
