Yesterday could have been a better day, yet it could also have been a worse day…but it wasn’t. Spending time with the family , nurturing them with love and comfort are the essential ingredients to that soup for the soul. At least to my soul…add a bit of tobasco to it yumm, the best soup EVER! But seriously, just looking at my younger son laying there on the sofa with a cold, still looking at me with those eyes that beckon to me and are secretly saying ” Mommy , can you make me feel better?” yet, his 14 year old macho self would never say those words out loud. I put on the nurturing Mommie hat and gently rubbed his forehead , checked his temperature, rubbed some vics on his chest, took out the water and tylenol and made him a dinner that his late grandmother would’ve made for him. All, to see him smile and feel better. I’m not sure who felt better at the end of that song and dance, him or I. Kids , regardless of how old or young they are, really do have a magical power in them to make your heart smile at just the right time.
