One thing I can count on in Mommyhood is being surprised. Sometimes I feel like I am in the movie Groundhogs day (same thing different day). I am not complaining I actually would choose this over many other scenarios but I have so many days where my kids delight and surprise me and remind me in their own way that what I am doing is of great worth.
My 11 year old left me this note on our counter a few Saturdays ago. I was having a particularly hard day and when I came in from a huge grocery shopping trip and saw this I instantly felt at peace and knew for the millionth time that being a Mom is the best job ever.
