Thursday night, Emma asked if she could have some paper to color on while I was making dinner, so I gave her some construction paper and markers and she busied herself making drawings while I finished cooking.
Just as I was getting ready to call the other kids down to dinner, Emma brought me this piece of paper:
She asked me to take a picture of it and send it to her daddy.
(It was a letter she had written for him.)
I asked Emma what it said and she took it from me and began to “read” it.
“Mommy, it says,’ Dear Daddy, every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings.’ ”
I was struck with a real “awwww” moment, because I hadn’t realized she had remembered that from watching It’s a Wonderful Life on Christmas eve.
Later that night (much, much later), after all of the kids had gone to bed, I was shutting the lights off and heading to bed and I heard Will. Singing. In his crib.
He should’ve been sleeping, but instead, he was singing.
I quietly went up the stairs and stood outside of his room and listened to him sing…. Auld Lang Syne.
(it happens to be a song at the end of one of Will’s favorite Winnie the Pooh DVDs)
I had no idea he even knew the song, but clearly he does 😉
A while back, I said I was looking for “my moment”, and I’m thinking that somehow, God has decided to give me lots of little perfect ones and, Thursday, it was one of those moments 🙂
