Today I had a 2 hour working meeting with my boss at a local coffee house. Then I zoomed over to GIRL's preschool to witness her ringing the big church bell with the other line leaders. I told her that I hoped to be able to make it to see her ring the church bell, but wasn't absolutely sure that I could. I ended up getting there with plenty of time to spare. When she led her class around the corner and saw me....the BIGGEST SMILE EVER WITNESSED was on her face. Her smile lit up her whole being, she was that happy to have me there. It was one of those moments when I realized just how important it is to be there for your children. It meant everything to her that I was there. And, I will never forget that huge smile. Or, the continual smiles she gave me as she pulled on the bell rope, and watched me watching her. Delicious....
