Today I was needed.
To iron the white shirt for Mikey's Tux.
To help him button the hardest of many buttons.
To tell him how very awesome he looked.
To take pictures.
No...he didn't ask for that!
Tonight we are Waiting.
For Mikey to come home from his big evening.
Warren, Jonathan, Chelsea and I.
Sitting in the living room.
Listening to Mark Schultz...loudly.
I have just cut Warren's hair.
He looks GOOD!
Occasionally Chelsea and Jonathan have had to dance.
I try not to watch them directly.
They get too self conscious.
They are so very funny.
I love my family!
It is good to be needed.
It is good to be together.
I am so tired.
Sleep would be great.
But I hate to be the first one to leave the room.
So I'll stay.
We are together!
Chelsea is yawning....and leaving the room.
Muttering something about getting ready for bed.
Warren leaves the room to retrieve
a drink from the kitchen.
So soon the moment is past.
It was good to have experienced it though.
Do you notice those special moments?
I wish many of them for you and yours!
