On a particularly busy evening, in a particularly tense moment, Madelyn scooted away to make me this.
I was stressed. Oh yes, I get that way from time to time. I may appear like I have it all together sometimes, or that I am cool as a cucumber, but I can often get strung out and maxed out.
Madelyn noticed the struggle I was experiencing and knew how to love me in that moment. She didn’t say a word; she just placed this gorgeous little gift of love on the counter right behind me. She knew I would turn and see it. She knew when to step in and love. Of course the minute I saw it, my shoulders went down. I smiled an effortless smile. I felt loved. Even in a fussy moment when I was not shining so bright, she chose to love and affirm.
Thanks, Maddie. You inspire me to love unconditionally.
