Last night I went out after work. I got home before 9 and Char was already asleep because Eric had her outside in the pool all day long so she was pretty beat. However, the second I walked into my bedroom her eyes popped open. I’m not exaggerating either, it happened the second I was at my bedside. She looked at me and said “oh my mommy, I’ve been waiting for you!” I climbed into bed and she snuggled up next to me and started to fall back asleep. Her eyes were closed and she whispered “I love you so much mommy” and kissed my cheeks before promptly passing out again.
I want to write this moment down so that when I’m at the end of my rope and all out of patience with her I can look back and remind myself how good being a mother is. How the love is always waiting for me at home. How someone is always happy to see me, no matter what. This is what they mean by unconditional love. How beautiful is that?
