Today was a day full of reasons to be happy. I will share just a few with you.
1. For the first time ever I was able to leave Violet in the nursery at church and she happily played with the toys and with the other little boy throughout the entire church service. No crying! I haven’t even attempted to put her in the nursery in nearly a year, because she would cry hysterically until I returned. Violet has changed, though, and my intuition told me that things would be different now. I am so happy that my spirited baby is growing into a secure, adventurous, precocious little girl.
2. I love receiving unexpected packages in the mail! Yesterday a box arrived addressed to Violet. There was a letter inside from her cousin, a genuine cheerleader’s uniform (her cousin is a very talented cheerleader), and a bunch of books. What could be better? Violet loves dressing up and there isn’t a word to describe how much she enjoys books.
3. The Grand Opening of our long-awaited Michael’s store was today. My friends and I have been waiting a year for this store to open and it finally has! Now all we need is a Target and I’ll be all set. 🙂
