never being enough.
never saying the right thing.
saying all the wrong things.
no one's happy and everyone needs something.
but some days you get it right.
you do and say just the right thing and all is well with the world.
thankfully, today was that day.
riley woke up sad
and worn out.
i can usually tell it might be one of those days when she comes down in a different outfit then the one she picked out the night before.
indecision in her world (in most worlds in this home actually!:)) usually leads to tears.
after cries of "i don't feel well, please let me stay home."
i knew we needed a little bit of an intervention.
see, i knew it really wasn't that she didn't feel well. it was something else. something she probably didn't even know, or couldn't put into words anyway.
so, i called a friend to pick up jane, and took riley and aubrey to mcd for a hotcake date.
it was just the little out of the ordinary pick me up she needed.
it gave us a few more minutes to chat, smooth out her morning and help her find her smile.
she was a tad bit worried about being late and having to walk in after class started but as luck would have it, they had an assembly first thing in the morning and she didn't miss a thing.
don't you love it when things work out that way?
have a happy day,
