I woke up this morning and went to the computer to go pay bills. After seeing the lack of money that we will have after paying those bills (bad bill week) I got a little teary eyed. Grayce walked around the corner and saw me crying and came over and asked what was wrong. I told her that I was just upset that we didn't have as much money as I thought we would after paying bills. She looked at me and said "mommy, you can have the money in my piggy bank". Of course I told her that I would never take her money. She then gave me a big ol' hug and told me that everything would be alright. She is just so sweet. She then helped clean up around the house (without being asked to) and after that went and drew me a picture of herself, Eric and I under a rainbow. Is she really only 4 (almost 5)? She is so wise beyond her years. She knows just what to do to make me happy. The pure joy that she brings me on a daily basis is indescribable! Her pure sweetness has made me very emotional today, and I cannot stop thinking of how blessed I am. She made me forget all about the money issues with her kindness. How did I get so lucky to be given the opportunity to be her mother? I just hope I don't let her down.
Now for the cuteness!
