This morning I came downstairs in a rush, dressed for work, and ready to go. My four-year-old daughter suddenly appeared in front of me, held up a chunky kids’ necklace, and asked, “Momma, can you wear this today?”
Screech! went the tires of my whizzing mind.
I looked at the huge purple flowers. The sparkles. I did a quick comparison with my white blouse and cranberry skirt. Not my first choice of accessories.
Then I looked at my daughter’s big doe-eyes. “I made dis myself,” she added.
How could I refuse?
So I slipped it on. Looked in the mirror. You know what? I thought, It works.
My daughter’s eyes grew even bigger as she smiled.
I resolved to wear the necklace all day.
Two compliments and counting!
