known and loved

having older kids is so different. they keep you WAY more accountable.

when my kids were all small, I could be struggling or in a bad mood, and they would be oblivious. at the time, it could make me feel even more alone. but now in hindsight, it was nice.

my older kids pick up on my moods sometimes even before I do! and it's frustrating sometimes...because there are days when i'm just not ok. and I don't want to answer for it.

last week we had a snow day...the day after pat and I got away. and I didn't handle it well.

sweet Rebekah led me upstairs after dinner and had a bath all ready for me. with bath salts and lemons on the edge and everything. AND she did the dinner dishes while I got to take a bath. it was the first bath I've ever taken in this house! (we've lived here 9 years...)

I felt KNOWN and LOVED. I didn't deserve that AT ALL after how I was acting. but she chose to love me anyway.

Rebekah is very perceptive of her Mom's needs!
