Melt My Heart!

One of the things I hate most about mornings is having a deadline. My job is extremely flexible, and I don't technically have to be here until 8:30, but if I don't come in until 8:30 that means I can't leave until 5 and it also means that on my flex weeks I can't have Friday off. I am not crazy about either option, so that typically puts me on a pretty tight schedule in the mornings. This morning was no different, except for the fact that Alexa woke up before I got out of the shower. Poor thing, she fell out of her bed. She wasn't hurt, but she was standing in my room when I came out of the bathroom, and she wanted her mommy. I quickly picked her up and started one of her fave videos so I could finish getting ready. We had a few tense moments as I was trying to get her ready because she wanted to finish her video, but for the most part we did ok. It took a few more minutes than I would've preferred and we got to work a few mintues later than I would've liked, but life goes on right?

Then as we are walking to her class holding hands she looked at me and said 'mommy, you are my best friend!' Oh I melted! I stopped in the middle of the hallway, bent down and gave her the biggest hug and said 'Alexa you are my best friend too'. It was the sweetest thing, and it made my imperfect morning completely perfect. What a blessing from God my sweet little girl is!!
