Who Decorates Your Life?

It's really not all about decorating our homes - It's about those who decorate our lives.

I was reminded of this (again) earlier this evening.  Coming home from my *real* job to a very very VERY messy house, a five year old with a fudgecicle colored face and a hungry husband put me in a bit of a foul mood.   Top that off with a case of PMS, and you get one unhappy momma.

Anyways, I ended up spending about 4 seconds asking my daughter about school, I proceeded to try to straighten up the living room, organize the kitchen counters, get a quick dinner ready, get school stuff packed for the next day - when a little voice stopped me.  My little one - Nicole (you can read more about her here) - wanted to show me the "artwork" she had done earlier that day.  I'm going to take a guess and figure that most of you know how much artwork a small child creates.  I really REALLY didn't want to stop what I was doing, so I managed to put her off for another few minutes.  But she's pretty relentless.  

I finally followed her back to what she wanted to show me (it was in her Hannah Montana folder, which is only for SUPER IMPORTANT papers) and this is what I found..........

It reads "I  L U MoM".
Stopped me right in my tracks, I tell ya.   And, needless to say, we spent the rest of the evening reading, snuggling and playing restaurant.   The house can wait until tomorrow.
I  L U too sweetie.

Smiles and Hugs,
