Last night J came home from work to find the girls and I full of the day’s projects and plans. The table was covered with artwork and watercolor pencils. He commented that we’d been busy and I came back with ‘we need to find magnet strips.’ He flashed me a knowing smile.

When I enquired as to why he told me that I light up when I talk about art projects and things the girls and I will do and learn together. He said I glow in those moments, that I’m very beautiful doing what I love – which is being a mom.

I’m so blessed to be married to a man who sees things like that, and tells me so.
