Just What I Needed

I was feeling overwhelmed. Frustrated. It was just one of those moments of the day when things were not coming together... I'd forgotten something important at the store... The weather was dismal... My computer locked up... I lost a good hour's worth of work... I was feeling cranky. I let out a sigh of frustration and lowered my head to the desk.

And I heard a little voice say,

"God bless you, Mama."

I started to correct my son, to tell him that I had not, in fact, sneezed. But before the words could leave my lips, tears sprung to my eyes.

What did all the rest matter? In the grand scheme of things, would any of those things really make a difference in my life? Would the world stop turning?

God had already blessed me beyond measure...

"God bless you too, sweetie..."

Wow. Isn't amazing how our kids can tune into us and say just what we need to hear?
